Procrastination Help To Get Things Done
Have you had that feeling of knowing that you needed to do something but you can’t just seem to get yourself to do it? You may need some procrastination help. Putting off a task that you know needs to be done makes it harder to actually get it done when it comes to the moment of action. It is so easy to build up resistance to even the simplest tasks by just waiting or not finishing that our lives can quickly become filled with anxiety due to procrastination.
Procrastination is not a good habit to develop, but most of us go through periods of this depending on what is that we need to do and our state of mind. We may think that by putting it off we are waiting for the right moment to get something done, but that right moment may never arrive. This is why it is important to get started as soon as possible before you build up so much resistance that the task at hand just doesn’t get finished at all.
What is the almighty key that will end procrastination for good?
All you need to do is get started and the rest should follow.
5 Minutes To Get Motivated
I always support the 5 minute rule where I say that if you can get started for just 5 minutes, it should be enough to keep you moving for the rest of the current task.
Why 5 minutes? I say this because 5 minutes seems and feels easy.
We need the least amount of resistance as possible when starting a task, so this is a great way to get moving in the right direction. Most of the time when you start doing something, you will actually find that you end up wanting to complete it even if you didn’t feel like doing the task before you started. When you make progress on your task, even if it only 5 minutes of progress, it makes it easier to start again soon thereafter. This is because you are mentally preparing yourself and proving that you can get it done.
When it comes to your first 5 minutes, make sure that time is spent on the easiest parts of what it is that you need to do. That will start to build the wonderful momentum effect within you.
The power of momentum is what will help you break procrastination straight in half and move on through it. If you can feel good about completing 5 minutes of work on something, then you can build up just enough momentum to want to keep doing it until it is finished. Even if you don’t build up the momentum to break through your procrastination, simply try another 5 minutes again as soon as you are ready until you do.
By practicing this technique in building your momentum, you will learn how to supercharge yourself to finish any tasks that you need to do as soon as possible. You will start to see how good it feels to get things done and how much change you can bring into your life by doing these things.
Start immediately and spend only 5 minutes doing what you need to do in the easiest manner possible. With this procrastination help, you will be on your way to breaking through your habit and generating tons of positive change within your own life.
