How to How to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time By John P Hyland and Get More Done in Less Time By John P Hyland


If you want to stop procrastinating and get more done in less time, you will need to be more clear about what you want and what you have to do to achieve it. Once you have done this the easier it is for you to overcome procrastination. A major reason for procrastination and lack of motivation is vagueness, confusion and a fuzzy mind about what you are supposed to do and in what order and for what reason. Strive for greater clarity in everything you do. One of the great rules for success is to think on paper. Write all your ideas down.
Expert Author John P HylandIf you are serious about wanting to stop procrastinating, there are seven simple steps that if followed will triple your productivity.
Step 1 - Decide exactly what you want. One of the worst uses of time is to do something very well that need not be done at all.
Step 2 - Write it down, think on paper, crystallize your goals and put energy behind it. Create something that you can touch and see.
Step 3 - Set a deadline on your goal. A goal or a decision without a deadline has no urgency.
Step 4 - Make a list of everything that you can think of that you are going to have to do in order to achieve your goal. Keep adding to the list until it is complete. A list gives you a visual picture of the larger task or objective. It will increase the likelihood that you will achieve your goals as you have defined it and on schedule.
Step 5 - Organize the list into a plan. It will be easier to achieve your goal when you break it down into individual tasks. With a written goal and an organised plan of action, you will be far more productive and efficient.
Step 6 - Take action on your plan immediately. Do something! Do anything! For you to achieve any kind of success, execution is everything.
Step 7 - Do something every day, resolve to do something everyday that moves you towards your major goal. Never miss a day, keep pushing forward. Once you start moving, keep moving. Don't stop! Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement. Think about your goals and review them daily. Take action on the most important task you can accomplish and achieve your most important goal at the moment.
If you decide to take these simple steps on board and implement them into your daily routine, you will soon see a big change in your personal and business life. I wish you all the best on the road to achieving your goals.
