If you’re a procrastinator, like me, then you can understand how difficult things are when you wait until the last minute. Putting off projects or other responsibilities is a huge stressor and just makes my anxiety climb – which makes me not want to “do the thing,” which increases my anxiety … and round and round we go. Procrastination is an ugly enemy, one that is hard to get away from. So what do we do to get ahead of it? Here are a few ways that we can stop putting things off. The only trick is that you need to start today….

  1. Break down each task into smaller, more manageable steps.
  2. Set deadlines.
  3. Reward yourself for reaching milestones.
  4. Turn off / get away from distractions.
  5. Commit to one small item at a time.
  6. Address any fears or concerns that contribute to your procrastination.
  7. Set up an accountability partnership.
  8. Forgive yourself for not being perfect!
  9. Create SMART goals.
  10. Use a coach or other service, such as solvingprocrastination.com, to help you out.
