How to stop procrastinating
Now we all know that practicing and following through are the best ways to break bad habits. If you want to stop procrastinating you’ll want to download the free Organized Busy Mom Planner to help you stop procrastinating.
Tip #1 Knowing where to start
When you are overwhelmed with where to start you may find yourself procrastinating. If you’re overwhelmed with a project, housework, or something else the solution is the same. Pick an area or a section to start at and commit. Most of the time when you start it can be easy to finish.
Tip #2 Trying to be perfect
Another way to stop procrastinating is to stop expecting everything to be perfect. This is something I struggle with constantly.
If you have high expectation for yourself this might be hard to let go of. Think about the project/task being complete, not perfect. If it’s complete, you can always go back and tweak it if necessary.
Tip #3 Work on one thing at a time
If you find yourself working on multiple things at a time you might be burning yourself out. Try working on one thing at a time.
If you have multiple tasks that need to be completed all at about the same time then try to schedule a little bit of time for each task so it will get your full attention.
When giving your full attention to your tasks you’ll make fewer mistakes and it won’t take as long as you might think it will.
Tip #4 Create an organized schedule
Having an organized schedule is key to stop procrastinating. When you feel out of control and overwhelmed you may not do anything instead.
To break that bad habit, create an organized weekly schedule to help you manage your time wisely. By having an organized schedule you’ll know what needs to be done when allowing you more time to focus on things you want to.
