I’m just wrapping up some of my ‘tough’ tasks for the day. You know the ones I mean?
That’s right, the ones that scream ‘procrastination’!
I wanted to share with you how I overcame avoiding and procrastinating on the stuff I dislike or am resistant to with this simple strategy.
I think you’re going to Love this!
It’s a quick 3 step strategy and it’s helped by a snazzy FREE App for your browser.
Identify what must be done and highlight those things that have been on your list for weeks, maybe months.
Sometimes I know I am so in avoidance I blank things from my mins, so a good ‘Incomplete’ brainstorm session really helps.
Identify how long you think it will take you to complete the task and schedule it as a goal on your Daily Planner.
Sometimes just contemplating the time it will take helps me acknowledge the time and energy I have wasted avoiding it.
For example: I have been putting off writing a letter for months now and the crazy thing is that I aim to benefit from the outcome. What’s that about?
Today, following this very strategy, it’s done and off my ‘to do’ list and more importantly, off my mind!
Use a brilliant App called ‘Win the day’ which allows you to list your 3 goals for the day so you can tick them off as you complete them and allows for ‘focus time’.
‘Focus time’ is where you set a timer and the App blocks any pop-ups or interruptions that may come through your browser during the countdown of the timer.
I find this really helps focus the mind and avoid distractions and remember it’s free.
