Almost everything we do can be broken down into little manageable parts.
Take, for instance, the laundry. If the laundry seems like a daunting task to you, break it down into steps. Collect all your dirty clothes. Separate colors and whites. Put your clothes on a wash cycle. Put them in the dryer. Fold them.
You cannot fail at something when you don’t do it at all. Facing your fear of failure will help you eventually overcome that fear, or learn to manage it.
So next time you think about putting something off simply to avoid a potential failure, tackle it head-on. You’ll grow as a person from the experience.
There are definitely varying levels of self-control. However, there is a point in which your self-control can get in the way of productivity.
Procrastinating comes easier to people who naturally do not have the discipline to complete tasks in a timely and organized manner.
If you put something off and then forget to write down that you need to do it later, it’s possible that you could entirely forget about the first task.
If you’re a forgetful person, make a to-do list with all your tasks on it, and only cross them off when they’re 100% completed.
Procrastinating a task does not always equate to worse work. Some people work very well under pressure and can produce very good work.
Eventually, there will come a time when procrastinating doesn’t go so well. Be mindful of the quality of your work and make sure your last-minute rush doesn’t show.
