Procrastination is the act of putting off important tasks or responsibilities, especially those that require immediate attention. It can be a problem for anyone but it’s something that most people have experienced at some point in their lives. Procrastinating is easy to spot but hard to break, here are some tips you can use to beat procrastination and keep your productivity up.
The first thing to beat procrastination is being organized. Creating a To-Do list with deadlines for each task helps us prioritize the tasks and goals of our responsibilities when facing an impending deadline. It is more likely for us to be productive when we have a schedule because they seem more attainable when they are in order.
The next trick for beating procrastination is to schedule reminders so that they appear on your phone. Procrastination often happens because we focus too much on the present and forget about the future, but when you can see reminders coming up in your Google Calendar or iCal, it helps you stay focused. Having an alarm go off every day with a reminder or even visual cues like sticky notes of what needs to be done is a great way to keep productivity up.
Having a shared space and creating a sense of community is another reason why people chose coworking spaces. Officing in a coworking environment allows you to surround yourself with other goal-oriented and high-achieving professionals, like-minded people such as yourself. Having so many professionals in one room means your networking opportunities are endless. You never know who you will meet to help you move your business forward.
We tend to convince ourselves that we have more time than we think when a task seems difficult and we don’t know where to begin, causing us to procrastinate instead. The 10-minute rule is where you say to yourself “I’ll do this for 10 minutes, and then I can stop if I really need to.” Sometimes our minds are overwhelming us with thoughts like “this will take hours!” or “I’ll never be able to do this.” With the 10-minute rule, you set arbitrary time limits on your tasks, which can help avoid these thoughts.
Communicate with people that can help or ask for help from others. Procrastination often results in feeling overwhelmed or frustrated, but if you are struggling with this, the best way to avoid it is by communicating with people that can provide support. For instance, if you’re procrastinating on an important task because you don’t know how to do it, talk to someone that does or search up an online tutorial on how to do it. Procrastination can also result in feelings of guilt for not doing what needs to be done, so saying “no” to things might be necessary so you have more time and energy for your work.
