3 Ways to Protect Yourself From Procrastination 

 

Procrastination can feel like a physical barrier

 

 

Part of you wants to action action, but another part, a stronger part of you wants to sit and do nothing.

 

Even when the action would achieve a positive outcome IE going to a job interview would get you a well paid job, you still procrastinate. This is because procrastination isn’t a logical response, its an emotional pull

 

Here is how you can change how you feel about procrastination

Step 1 To Beat Procrastination

 

The perceived action, when you are procrastinating, feels like a big task

 

Even going to the gym. You don’t think “lets go to the gym” instead your mind tricks you through a procrastinating perspective “i have to get changed, then find my gym shoes, then get some money to pay the cashier, then i will have to choose which workout to undertake, then I will…..”

 

When procrastinating you make one small easy task seem big and overwhelming.

 

When you find yourself breaking one task down into a million steps, stop, take a deep breath and state the one task “I will go to the gym in the next 5 minute” then take action

Step 2 To Beat Procrastination

 

Procrastinators often visualize themselves failing, in pain or  looking stupid

 

Its these negative thoughts that create no action. To take action, use an old mind-trick. Imagine the thought as a picture, make the picture black and white and put a border around it.

 

Slowly, at first, move the framed black and white picture away from your minds eye, future and future away until its a dot on the horizon. Once its a dot on the horizon, notice how it no longer bothers you.

 

Now imagine yourself doing the task/action and enjoying it – this will create motivation

Step 3 To Beat Procrastination

 

Reward Yourself.

 

Once complete (or when you achieve a milestone) you need to reward yourself. This creates double pleasure – the pleasure from completing the task and the pleasure from your reward which creates more motivation

 

Also tell other people how successful you have been, this again increases motivation but also installs  commitment to do the task again, as we know that our friends will ask about it next time they see you
