How to manage your procrastination triggers

Procrastination is a signal that something is wrong, and you need to change the way you approach a task.

There are three ways to deal with your procrastination triggers.

  1. Consider why you are procrastinating. Often, tasks you don't want to do can be deleted or delegated.
  2. Adapt to your resistance levels. Break the task down into manageable chunks.
  3. Reverse your procrastination triggers. If a task is boring, try to make it more fun. If it is unrewarding, treat yourself after you complete it.
