Have you ever found yourself rushing at night to finish a homework that you have to turn in the morning after, and wishing you had started sooner? If so, it鈥檚 possible you are a procrastinator. First of all, what is procrastination? I鈥檓 sure most of you already know, but why do we still do it then? Procrastination, by definition, is the avoidance of doing a task that needs to be accomplished. It is the act of constantly looking for distractions and putting things off until last minute, especially the difficult tasks.

 

This is how procrastinators usually think. They prefer doing things later, instead of doing them on time. This type of thinking can lead to work accumulation, and therefore, stress, anxiety, no sleep, and the list goes on. It is one thing to sometimes leave things until the last minute, but a procrastinator would avoid a difficult task constantly and just prefer doing it 鈥渓ater鈥, hoping that the time to actually do the work never comes. However, procrastinators avoid tasks, but I鈥檒l show you how to avoid procrastination.

TP 201903 featur 03How do you know if you are a procrastinator? Well, procrastinators, like I said before, prefer putting things off to do them 鈥渓ater鈥. Most of them may say they perform better under pressure, but that's their way of justifying their actions. Either way, I鈥檓 here to tell you it鈥檚 possible to overcome procrastination.

 

The first step to overcome procrastination is to recognize that you are doing it. How do you know you are procrastinating? If you find yourself constantly saying 鈥淚鈥檒l finish that later鈥, if you 鈥渨ait until the right time or you feel like it鈥 to start an important task, or if you find yourself constantly looking for distractions (games, mobile phones, talking to friends, shopping, going out, taking a nap, etc.) instead of finishing or beginning what you are supposed to be doing, then you are procrastinating.

TP 201903 featur 04Now that you鈥檝e recognized that you鈥檙e procrastinating, the second step is to ask yourselves why, and saying that 鈥渋t鈥檚 more fun to do other things鈥 is not the answer, it鈥檚 an excuse. So let鈥檚 actually think deep on the reasons why you are procrastinating: is it organizational problems like time management? Is it because you don鈥檛 enjoy it? Is it because you can鈥檛 decide what to do? Is it because you are tired and think that once you start a certain task, it will take forever to finish, so you prefer to do it later?

 

If you find yourselves saying 鈥測es鈥 to one or more of these questions, then the third step is to get over the procrastination once and for all. Maybe these tips might help you:

 

  • - Create a schedule, and fit doing homework into it.
  • - Make a TO-DO list.
  • - Remind yourselves of how bad it feels when you actually leave things for last minute.
  • - Divide the difficult tasks into small chunks and make progress little by little.
  • - Don鈥檛 overthink, take action!
  • - Commit.
  • - Keep distractions to a minimum (turn off your phone and/or internet, if necessary).
  • - Reward yourself for actually finishing.

If you follow these 8 tips you will be good to go. I鈥檒l leave you with one final example of reflection.

TP 201903 featur 05There comes a point where, if you keep on postponing things, the amount of effort and work you will have to put in and do will get bigger to the point of no return, and when that comes you are going to be wishing that you had started everything before. So, keep this in mind, and if you think that there is an important or big task then maybe try doing a little every day, instead of all of it the last day. You will feel a lot better and proud of yourselves this way.
