Getting Over Procrastination

By: Ted Johnson

Some say procrastination has destroyed many a man. Unfortunately, this is true throughout all of life, in work, play, and relationships. When you put off till tomorrow what you can do today that is procrastination. Procrastination leads to nothing but stress and can, ultimately, lead to failure. If you want to avoid procrastination the key is to develop self discipline. Self discipline is the key to success.
There are so many chores and duties to complete during a day; there is no reason to sit around idly, doing nothing. Get your chores done by making a list of them in order of importance. Then, you can allow enough time for each chore or duty. This will help you see to it that what you need to do gets done.
If you work from home setting a schedule is extremely important to keep procrastination at bay. It is all too easy to get distracted when you work online. You have a tendency to pop in every few minutes to check emails or get wrapped up in online chats.
To avoid this pitfall of working from home, you should set up a time schedule as though you were out of the home at work. Establish a time for home chores and a time to work online. As much as possible, keep the two separated. This will allow you to determine how much time you need to set aside for each task and help you keep yourself moving along a time schedule. When you are working online, log off the instant messenger and check emails online when you begin work and when you complete work for the day. This will help tremendously in keeping procrastination at bay.
Discipline can become a habit. Once one becomes accustomed to doing a job on time and taking care of work as it arises individuals become more organized. More organized and disciplined workers are more productive and dependable.
Plainly speaking, if you have a job to do and nothing else is demanding your time and attention then get the job done. The best way to get over the nasty habit of procrastination is to start practicing working according to your schedule. After a while, you will find productivity has replaced procrastination.
