Not Getting Things Done?

There is always something getting in way. The one reason to not getting  things done is procrastination. Why do we do it?

We found this reasons on the web and they rung true here goes

  • You are procrastinating because you don’t enjoy a PART of the entire task or job.

If you’re putting off a whole project just because there’s one part you don’t want to do, figure out how you can get away without doing that part. Again, delegate it, or automate it.

  • You are procrastinating because you don’t know how to handle the task or job.

The answer will not drop in your lap. Get help — a someone to teach you how,even better, outsource it to someone who can just do it for you.

  • You are procrastinating because you simply can’t find the time.

Schedule future time to do it, or get rid of other tasks to create the time you need. If you still can’t do this, then you need to find someone to do it for you.

  • You are procrastinating because you feel stuck.

You may just need to get momentum going. Give yourself permission to do just one small part of the project only. Or do the easiest part first. This usually creates momentum, and you end up doing a lot more than you intended to!

  • You are procrastinating because you don’t really want to do what you thought you should do.

This means you may have the wrong objective or strategy in the first place! Is this something you really want to do, or do you just think you SHOULD do it? Or is it an old goal that doesn’t fit you or your business anymore? Your answer may surprise you. Let the goal go for awhile and see what happens.

  • Start Paying Attention!

Once you start paying attention to which activities you put off regularly, you’ll know sooner when to be stricter with yourself or find help to get those tasks accomplished in a more timely manner.
