Productivity for Procrastinators: 10 Ways to Win

Grazing in the kitchen, browsing Facebook, cleaning the apartment… we’re all guilty of finding something else to occupy our time when we should be getting work done. Even reading articles about how to stop procrastinating may be your way of putting it off (hey, at least you’re trying). Take a few minutes and resolve to do something about it after reading this great article by Frances Booth.

Booth highlights that a common trap is getting caught at either end of the spectrum when a task is either too easy or too difficult. Being aware of this and tackling the problem, whether it be boredom or looming deadlines, in steps is a better strategy than blindly guessing at the demands in front of you. Also, keeping a detailed record of exactly where your time goes will help you realize your own pitfalls (like that 5-minute snack break somehow evolving into a half hour “research” session on Wikipedia).

Some of these tips might seem obvious, but if it were that easy to stop procrastinating, you wouldn’t be reading this, would you?
