Have you ever thought of doing something just to put it on hold for the so called right time?The most common problem we all have to deal with is procrastination. We know what we want to do and should do. But still we end up spending hours upon hours escaping through social media(  guess this Facebook Thing isn’t stealing your time) watching videos, and surfing the net( obviously just looking for something to release them of the boredom). At the end, we become very unproductive which intends lowers our self esteem. If you believe procrastination is an old thief of time, and you desperately need help. Then, this post is right for you.Today I share with you how to overcome procrastination in some simple steps.Enjoy!
  • Make a list of all things you procrastinate
First thing to do to learn how to stop procrastination is make a short list of the tasks you have been procrastinating. Next to each task, write a sentence or two describing the benefits you will get from undertaking such tasks. This first step will give you the impetus to start doing it.
  • Start doing, stop planning
It is common to spend time and time again planning and thinking over what we want to do. A bit of planning can certainly help you to achieve what you want to achieve. A lot of planning and thinking tends to have the opposite effect. Take the next step; you have planned enough, start doing all that is on the drawing board. For a journey of thousand miles would always begin with the first step.
  • Break your work into little steps
When you do the hard jobs first, the easy one would take care of themselves. Break your work into little steps. Part of the reason why we procrastinate is because subconsciously, we find the work too overwhelming for us. Break it down into little parts, and then focus on one part at the time. If you still procrastinate on the task after breaking it down, then break it down even further. Soon, your task will be so simple you can finish it in no time.

Remember,Procrastination has always being named as the number thief of time; don’t allow it to cripple you.
