Productivity Tips for Procrastinators
Today is a good day to start fulfilling your dreams!
Dreaming without taking action is just a waste of time.
It's like planning a vacation without booking the tickets – you might as well not bother because it's not going to happen. The same goes for your dreams – if you don't take any steps towards making them a reality, they'll never materialize.
My story is no different
I used to dream a lot without taking action.
"Once, when I know enough, I will start," – I said to myself.
So my days passed, and nothing was achieved.
Until one day, I realized that I needed to act.
And so, from an observer, I became a doer.
Today I am an author of a series of books, the curator of a website about web development, the founder and developer of strategic prioritizer 1st things 1st, a blogger, an active learner, and a member of a few communities.
But what can be done to escape procrastination?
- Get clear about what it is that you want. Clarity is vital when it comes to taking action; if you're fuzzy about what you want, then chances are slim that anything will get done. So sit down and figure out precisely what you desire most in life. Write it down and keep referring back to this list whenever doubts or distractions try to pull you off track.
- Make a plan of how you will achieve your goal. This could involve breaking down the larger goal into smaller tasks or setting deadlines for yourself, whatever works best. A trackable plan will help keep motivation high and give you a sense of progress as you make headway towards your ultimate destination.
- Take action! As Nike famously says, "Just do it." Don't overthink things or wait for perfect conditions; sometimes, the only way to get started is by simply putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward bit by bit. Remember: Rome wasn't built in a day, so don't expect to achieve your goal overnight either!
