EIGHT WAYS TO STOP PROCRASTINATING
Things to do to get the mission complete

• Create a To-Do list — Prioritize by what bothers you the most –> then cross or check it off when you completed it.
• Be realistic about your To-Do list and what you can actually do — Procrastinators sense of time may be a little off. The more realistic you become about what you can complete, the less likely you’ll be to procrastinate.
• Choose the easiest place first —
You don’t always have to start at the most dreaded project. If that first step seems the most challenging, start with another part of the project instead.
• Create your workspace – Make it convenient and simple. Clear a table from clutter to work on. You may just want to purge papers or file them.
• Create more time —
Time is relative and short. If it seems like there really is no time, cut out a half hour or so from your existing schedule. If you really want to start doing yoga for a half an hour, you can start doing it.
• Use the minutes that are available to you —
Remember that even 10 minutes is enough time to get something done. A bill can be paid on line or a call returned.
• Reward yourself —
After you meet small deadlines, promise yourself a small treat. When the entire project is complete then possibly a larger reward.
• Getting motivated to started —
The hardest part is getting started. Set an alarm on your cell phone for 15 minutes for the task at a time that you have free time. You will likely find that once you actually get started your momentum will increase and you’ll want to do more.
