Procrastination is defined as ‘the action of delaying or postponing something’.
It is the one action in life that is only ever realized in hindsight. And what does procrastination always want to latch onto? Your ‘to-do’ list!
Now don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t mean that ‘to-do’ list won’t get completed…it will, surely—but, when? During the next few days? Months? Years? That question still remains.
Procrastination is a common denominator in just about everybody’s life—myself included. During those times of procrastination, you always started your task with good intentions, feeling that ‘today will be the day, today I’m going to get everything done!’—only to find yourself an hour later immersed watching cat videos.
This can leave you feeling unproductive, defeated, depressed and guilty. My view is to not beat yourself up. Life is a challenge. Instead of becoming overwhelmed with all the new tasks that keep getting added to the ‘to-do’ list every day, switch your list into what can be completed in a timely order.
How do you do this? With organization! Yes, even your ‘to-do’ list needs to be reorganized.
Follow these steps to take the stress out of your ‘to-do’ list and nip procrastination in the bud.
- Break the list down into the various sections of your life where the projects need to be completed (ex. kitchen, office, garage).
- Add priority codes beside each task, within each section.
- Give yourself a realistic deadline date for completion.
Just by completing this small step, I bet you’re starting to feel a slight weight being lifted off those heavy shoulders.
An important lesson in life is while you may not be in charge of outcomes,
you ARE in charge of your actions and you have a choice to procrastinate or not.
