Procrastination is opportunity's assassin



Or, he who hesitates is lost.


I know that some posters on here, me included, often put off till later something which could be done now.

The top tips of achievers include:

1. Motivate yourself to start for 5 minutes
Set a timer - switch off the distractions and just do it.

2. Chunk it down
That major work can probably be completed in stages. It is best to do a stage properly then take a break if necessary to do the job well.


3. Check your thoughts
Catch yourself on. Tell yourself you can do it. Get rid of negative thoughts that fill you with self-doubt.

4. Change your environment
If it's not working in the chaos of your household, move into your man-shed, library or wherever you can have peace to complete the task.

5. Reward yourself
When the task is completely finished enjoy the moment with a small reward that you don't give yourself very often.

Happy projects!

More haste, less speed. Look before you leap. Have another cup of tea and think about it a bit more.
