I have strong procrastination tendencies – I sometimes think that if it weren’t for the last possible moment, I wouldn’t get anything done. Better time management and organization have helped me overcome a lot of my delaying habits, but there are some projects and tasks on my to do list that even now have been put off repeatedly.
In my post Control Your Time and Become a More Successful Artist I mentioned how helpful Michael Hyatt’s blog has been to me in better organizing my time. One helpful guest post by Allen Schowengerdt lists 5 ways to stop procrastinating. His list includes:
- Tackle the most difficult project first
- Divide the task into smaller tasks
- Set a mid-day alarm
- Dedicate yourself for a small period of time
- Schedule your tasks on the calendar
