Concentrate On Your Work

Many a times you sit to do your work and after an hour you see that you only wrote three lines. That is because of distraction. It may be from TV and internet. It turns into procrastination as when you see after 15 minutes that you have not written a word you just close the book and loose all hope. To tackle this you can write and take short brakes. That will actually save your time because you would be attentive when you are doing your work and even you would get a break when you are tired. Try to not get distracted by the movies and net and stay away from them.

 

7. Set Your Preferences

Set Your Preferences

It’s a tendency of the human mind to do those things first which are easier. It keeps on telling you to do the things which you are interested in. So, many persons try to do the things which are easier and sometimes less important and the mind gets a justification for not doing that work. So we have to teach our mind that the more important works are to be finished first even if we don’t like them. We should not make excuses and just keep us away from the work we should be doing. Also the light work must be saved for the last so you can enjoy those moments at full.

 

8. Do Not Try to Be Perfect

don't try to be perfect

Many times people leave the work pending because they want their work to be perfect. But that is not possible. We should just start doing our work without trying to be perfect. It is obvious that we will come in flow after some time we have started. So do not try to be in a perfect flow in the beginning as it is not possible. Even if the sentences does not make sense then to continue? If you are lacking somewhere you can correct it afterwards. We should know that we can’t be perfect at first attempts. So bad material is better than no material at all. You can make rough drafts first which will help you to make the final project. Do not fear if anything goes wrong as drafts are rough and are not meant to be perfect.

 

9. Get Started

Get started

Procrastination happens only when you are afraid of your work. When you do not know how to start your work you start procrastinating your work. The only solution to stop this is to get started. Like when you are writing any article or any other thing, just do not think and write the first three words the thoughts will only then continue and form sentences. So just jump in the task and only then your mind would be fully engaged. Or else if you do not follow it and just try to think of a suitable time of writing, I am telling you that time will never come. So the best way is to stop this and jump into the work.

 

10. Break Up The Task

Break up the task

Whenever you get a big project, do not think that it is so big you would not be able to complete it. Of course you cannot complete it in a day. So this leads to procrastination. To avoid this type of procrastination you can break your work in small pieces and assign yourselves with equal proportion of work a day. This will help us to complete the task in time. Ad no longer will the big projects scare you. The task of breaking the assignment is yours and makes it simple so that you can do it. But beware do not make it too simple because that will lead to another procrastination. It will really lower down your stress as all the work would not be accumulated at the last days only.
