National Procrastination Week

Putting things off -- we've all been guilty of it. "I'll do it later". You don't like doing the job at hand, the task seems too OVERWHELMING, you're a perfectionist, you don't know where to begin, you are afraid of failing -- there are lots of reasons for PROCRASTINATING. But overcoming procrastination is less about developing will-power, and more about creating an environment that is conducive to completing the task at hand. You can't make yourself do something you hate -- but you can make yourself hate it a little bit less. So let's take a moment this month to look at some ways you can curb your TENDENCY to procrastinate.

Some Practical Organizing Tips...

Break tasks into small pieces. Make a list of STEPS you will need to take to reach your goal. Then tackle one task at a time, until you've finished the list. It's easier to motivate yourself to work on several small jobs rather than one huge task.
Start your day with the task that you procrastinate WORST on. Whatever you normally hate to do -- make sales calls, clean the kitchen, work on your monthly report -- get it out of the way first thing in the morning. Then the rest of the day is a breeze.
Commit to spend just 15 MINUTES a day working on the task at hand -- set a timer so you know when it's over. You will be amazed at how much you can get done in 15 minutes -- and you'll probably work even longer on your project, once you get started.
