❗A must-read for anyone who wants to stop procrastinating‼️
1. Set the table: be clear about your goals and think on paper. A goal that is not in writing is merely a wish or fantasy. Think about your goals and review them daily. Do something every day that moves you towards your goals.
2. Plan every day in advance: it takes only about 10-15 minutes to plan your day, but this small investment of time will save you up to 2 hours in wasted time and diffused effort throughout the day.
The six-P formula: proper planning prevents poor performance.
3. Apply the 80/20 rule: people procrastinate on the 20% most important tasks and concentrate on the 80% that contribute very little results.
Resist the temptation to clear up small things first.
4. Consider the consequences: Ask yourself the potential consequences of not doing the task before starting. Long-term thinking improves short-term decision-making.
5. Practice creative procrastination: Deliberately procrastinate on small tasks because you can’t do everything you want to do and you have to procrastinate on small tasks that don’t have much contribution to your life.
6. Use the ABCDE method continually ‘A’ for very important important task. Which should be your priority before any other.
7. Focus on key result areas: a key result area is an activity under your control. Whatever you do, you must have certain essential skills to do your job well.
8. If you want to increase your reward, increase the total value of what you do.
9. Prepare thoroughly before you start any task. Get the necessary tools and create a comfortable workspace.
10. To eat a big frog, take it one step at a time.
11. Upgrade your skill sets: If you are a quack, you will likely procrastinate. Learn what you need to learn so you can do your job in an excellent way.
12. Identify your key constraint: what is holding you back from eating the frog that can really make a difference in your life?
13. Put the pressure on yourself by creating imaginary deadlines.
14. Motivate yourself into action. Don’t always wait for motivation; you won’t always get it. Be your own personal cheerleader. Coach yourself and encourage yourself. Be optimistic!
15. Technology is a terrible master: Technology can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Keep your relationship with technology under control.
16. Technology is a wonderful servant. You must discipline yourself to treat technology as a servant, not a master.
17. Focus your attention: Don’t allow social media or anything else to distract you; be focused to achieve more.
18. Set time for your goals and develop a sense of urgency.
19. Discipline yourself to focus on one task. Get it done before moving on to the next.
