Even the most efficient people sometimes get stuck or keep putting something off. If you’re hit with a bad case of procrastination, ask yourself these questions to get you moving again:

  • What are you putting off?

  • What impact will not doing this task have?

  • What’s stopping you?

  • What’s the benefit of doing the task or not doing it?

  • What can you do to make the first step?

Choose one of these procrastination-busting tips:

  • Take one step at a time. Don’t try to tackle big tasks all in one go; do one little bit at a time.

  • Do it now. You’ve put something off for long enough – just take yourself by surprise and do it.

  • Get someone else to do it. If you don’t have the time or energy to do it yourself, delegate!
