There was a time in my life where I was surrounded by a hundred ideas I had worked on but had accomplished none. The kind of emptiness I had started to feel was crushing me a little from within and my depression levels hit an all-time high.
I had always been a bright student and I saw all my friends doing so exceptionally well in their career and there I was, barely making my ends meet. I could clearly outdo all of them but all my bright ideas were sitting in half-finished status, leaving me in a haywire condition. That is when I finally realized that I needed to do something.
I set out to find the real problem which has been stopping me from succeeding and the answer came in the form of procrastination. It wasn’t like I lacked ideas or talent but I realized my habit to procrastinate was stopping me from converting these ideas to values.
I started looking for procrastination help and read as many articles as I could. I chanced upon this video which shed light on how to deal with procrastinating and it immediately caught my attention.
I started making a guidebook wherein I outlined every step I learned and it didn’t take me long to realize that I could undo the mistakes I have been doing. Every tip and helpful pointer gave me an awareness I wanted to implement in my schedule.
Here are some of the pointers and practical tips I want you to implement as well of you too are looking to beat procrastination.
- Find a reason: first of all, you need to find a reason as to why you have to stop procrastinating immediately. When you get a strong reason, it will give you the incentive to put in the best effort.
