#MondayMotivation: Overcoming Digital Procrastination

Posted on 8.14.2016

It happens to the best of us, but procrastination seems to be worse among those working in the digital realm. The reason? There's a sense that tasks can be done faster and more efficiently, and as a result, things don't always get started on time, leading to poor quality.

If you're a regular procrastinator, there are actually just a few basic habits you can engage in to ensure you don't fall too far behind - and the good news is they are designed with the procrastinator in mind.

 

  • Just Do One Thing: From buying a domain, to posting an ad on Fiverr, every little bit helps. When you take a big picture view, you often miss out on the small things you can do that help you gain momentum (which is the name of the game). 
  • Prioritize Tasks: Writing out a long list of to-do's and tasks is problematic for procrastinators; if you find the time to make a task list, number them from highest to lowest (and see step number 1). 
  • Outsource & Simplify: The one thing the most productive people have in common? They are experts at delegation - find someone, anyone to do the task at hand (prioritized accordingly) no matter how mundane and you're making progress. 
  • Channel Fear: Make yourself sick with worry, go ahead, it's perfectly healthy! It's not, consciously use the energy you expend on worry on something positive!
Happy Monday, now go get 'em!
