Thursday Time Tip: Fighting Procrastination with Clarity

Fighting Procrastination with Clarity

I left this out of Your Procrastination Solution, but I think it’s worth a mention here.

Although it’s not necessarily a cause of procrastination, often confusion can be a large contributing factor.

If you don’t have a clear idea of what you should be doing right now, it’s much more likely that you’ll procrastinate in order to relieve the tension.

Maybe a task seems overly complex. If so, break it down into steps and get started on your first item.

Maybe your to-do list is lengthy and unprioritized. If so, establish what’s your number one priority at the moment.

This isn’t a revolutionary approach – it seems like so much common sense. But I bet you’d be surprised how often confusion throws a monkey wrench into your productivity. Oftentimes a little confusion is all it takes to tip the balance over to procrastination.

And, of course, I don’t want to forget to mention my new (and free!) ebook, Your Procrastination Solution.

Don’t procrastinate and grab your copy right now.
