Avoiding procrastination

June 7, 2020
Finding clarity and setting goals

Procrastination often has nothing to do with what you actually need to do.

It is a form of stress relief and a way for our brain to divert us from an overwhelming and potential threat.

Among the mountain of tasks you have, finding a clarity to prioritize what is the most important might help to reduce the cognitive workload.

Setting a S.M.A.R.T (specific, measurable, agreed upon, realistic, time-based) goal daily could help to find clarity in your to-do tasks. On a daily basis, I advise having a maximum of 3 priorities of a day (’the rule of three”).

Another method is using the Eisenhower Box, where you can classify your tasks by urgency and importance.


Acknowledge Why You're Procrastinating 

Often you're procrastinating because you don't want to do something for a variety of reasons: it's boring, it's difficult or because you're afraid and ashamed. Start by identifying why you're procrastinating, so you better know how to manage it. If you are distracting yourself with surfing the web or social media, then move the devices away, make sure you focus. If you're afraid of failure, or ashamed that you've taken so long to summon your courage, forgive yourself so you can move on.
