Increase your productivity with these simple steps and conquer procrastination before you can say, “I’ll do it later.”
9 Steps to Conquer Procrastination
- Stop right now and make a list of your current projects.
- Which ones have been outstanding the longest?
- Are they still essential? If not, delete them off your list.
- Select the one that causes you the most stress or will have the biggest impact if you finish.
- Write down each detail of the project.
