Laziness and procrastination are indeed problems that afflict a huge number of people. Many want to be very productive every day but do not have any idea how to do it. In many cases, the problem lies with overcoming these issues. People put off or procrastinate doing things for a variety of reasons. In many cases, laziness is one of such reasons and can be attributed to a lack of reason or motivation. Other causes include fear of failure, lack of self-confidence, and health concerns. When one is able to overcome laziness and procrastination, it will be easier to be become productive and get things done right away. Here’re 4 easy ways to stop procrastination and laziness when you start up your own business or investment:
1. Prepare a plan.
It is important to have a plan in order to prevent poor performance. When you have a daily plan or lists of things to do, there is a guarantee that you will accomplish something as there is a guide and reminders on what to complete during the day. An added trick is to list down the benefits of implementing the plan and the consequences when you put off or delay them. This way, you have more reasons why you need to stick to your plan for that day.
2. Break things into small parts.
One common reason why people put things off is that they find the assignments too difficult so they are overwhelmed by the vastness of the assigned task. Take a look at your plans, if you find it quite large, try to break it into a series of tasks. For example, a $250,000 weekly sales target is indeed stressful to look at but when you break it into (for example) $50,000 daily target Monday to Friday with Saturday as your buffer day if and when you need more time to hit the target, the original weekly quota appears to be more doable and less stressful.
3. Stay healthy.
Get an ample amount of rest, eat well, and exercise. Laziness is not a consequence of procrastination or the reason why people delay things but rather is a result of being tired and lack of energy.
4. Eliminate distractions.
For example, delete games in your tablet, applications that makes you play more instead of working, and reconfigure settings of social media network where you can only access it if it will not distract your work. Removing distractions to work will help get things done and reduce procrastination.
