Why are you even wasting your time reading this list when you could be doing what you should be doing?! …You’re pathetic!!! …Just Kidding 🙂

  1. Set realistic goals/plan.
  2. Make a friend keep you on track by telling you to work.
  3. Set events/alarms to complete a section of the project.
  4. Often the hardest part of conquering procrastination is getting started. So, if you get started and complete a good portion of your project it’s much easier to finish it sooner rather than later. A good way to get started is to start the assignment right after it is assigned. This is because you are most motivated at that time to complete it.
  5. Eliminate distractions at your workplace. I recommend working at a library, it worked wonders for me.
  6. Use alarms to make you work for an hour and then take a ten-minute break. Rinse and repeat.
  7. Motivate yourself to complete it here.
  8. Stay away from your favorite jams. These can be huge distractions. Instead, listen to classical. Sounds rough, but it is soothing.
  9. NEVER EVER SAY “I will do it after this…” ALWAYS SAY “I will do it now, and then do this…
  10. Reward yourself after working for a while.

 

Procrastination sucks. But it’s actually a distraction monkey in your brain taking the wheel from your analytical side. Say no to the monkey when you get side tracked. Here’s how. Ted Talk.

*It took me three weeks to complete this*
