You can overcome procrastination. We’ve all put off tasks at one time or another. Sometimes the job seemed too big. Other times it was unpleasant. Whatever the reason, there’s no reason that you can’t overcome the tendency to procrastinate.
Once you get started, you’ll realize that you’re capable of succeeding.
- No task gets better with time. Whether it’s a messy closet or a leaky roof, the problem it causes won’t go away. In fact, most get bigger. The sooner you attack it, the easier the job will be.
- No one is born that way. We’ve all put off things, and some of us have made it a habit. That doesn’t mean that we’re cosmically predestined to always procrastinate. Begin the job and you’ll see that you can do it.
- No task is too big if you break it down into bite size pieces. Take the first step today. Then congratulate yourself for starting and promise yourself to take the second step tomorrow.
- No task is too nasty. We all have jobs that we don’t like. Putting them off doesn’t make them more agreeable. Tackle just a small portion of the job. Once that’s done, you’ll know that the next small portion can be done, too.
You can overcome procrastination and its unnecessary costs.
