I want to get something off my chest, far too many people don’t understand just how serious procrastination can be, and so let me tell you!!
Procrastination is a damaging psychological parasite that feeds off a lack of motivation, and by submitting to the curse of the procrastination parasite you are purposely preventing yourself from achieving your goals.
You could have had good grades if you studied way ahead of your exams, you could have been awarded employee of the month for beating deadlines, or perhaps you could have had a really nice life if only you hadn’t succumbed to the parasitic creature known as procrastination, and once this parasite gets its claws into you it hangs on and in serious cases has been known to become a life-draining disease.
However, if you’re one of the many procrastinators out there, all hope is not lost. A lifetime of procrastination does not necessarily mean you can’t change or live a happy and expediting life. There’s still a chance for every procrastinator out there to change their ways. Here’s some useful tips on how you could avoid the curse of the Procrastination parasite and rid yourself of your procrastinating behaviour:
Start Motivating Yourself!
There’s no substitute the driving force of motivation. With the right kind and amount of motivation, even the most logically bent procrastinator can’t resist. Motivation is the key to achieving any type of goal. This applies to everyone no matter how big or how small your goal may be. Motivate yourself with the things that make you happy. Think of the better life that you could live if only you would expedite rather than procrastinate. Although it’s all easier said than done, it is not impossible. Motivation is sometimes the missing puzzle piece in our lives, it completes us.
List the Consequences
Consequences are among the few things that procrastinators hate. It’s the thought of having negative results that makes procrastination unpleasant. If you’re seeing that you are already procrastinating, immediately turn your attention to the consequences of your delayed actions. This will often stir up pressure. Although pressure can sometimes break you down, this kind of pressure will help you eliminate the urge to procrastinate.
Get Help from Your Friends and Family
Most of the time, getting over procrastination takes extra effort and a lot of helping hands. You’ll need all the help you can get. Ask your friends and family to monitor your tasks and check if you’re doing them on time. This may be a little annoying at times but when someone is checking in on you, you’re more likely to be productive.
