We’ve all heard the popular saying of, procrastination an assassination to you motivation.
Procrastination simply put is delaying that which should be done, and rescheduling to do it another time.
Procrastination is often confused with laziness, but they are very different.
Procrastination is an active process – you
choose to do something else instead of the task that you know you should be doing. In contrast, laziness suggests apathy, inactivity and an unwillingness to act.
Procrastination usually involves ignoring an unpleasant, but likely more important task, in favor of one that is more enjoyable or easier.
But giving in to this impulse can have serious consequences. For example, even minor episodes of procrastination can make us feel guilty or ashamed. It can lead to reduced productivity and cause us to miss out on achieving our goals.
If we procrastinate over a long period of time, we can become demotivated and disillusioned with our work, which can lead to depression and even job loss, in extreme cases.
There are fine ways in which we could fight procrastination, I’ll outline some of them, so we can work earnestly on them.
*Fill your day with low-priority tasks.
*Leave an item on your To-Do list for a long time, even though it’s important.
*Read emails several times over without making a decision on what to do with them.
*Start a high-priority task and then go off to make a coffee.
*Fill your time with unimportant tasks that other people ask you to do, instead of getting on with the important tasks already on your list.
*Wait to be in “right mood,” or wait for the “right time” to tackle a task.
These way could help you to recover you work ability. Nice to have you back.
