Procrastination is part of our lives, we do some form of procrastination everyday. When you have a big project or lot of things to accomplish, procrastination does not help you reach your goal.
I found three easy ways to help avoid procrastination:
Turn Everything Off - Shut down your email, Facebook, Twitter, even your phone. Set a time limit to get your project done and get to work. This is my favorite, and I need to do it more often.
Set 3 Goals for the day - Choose three things you need to get done, two small goals and one big one. Start working and cross them off as you go. When your done take a break, you deserve it. For me, it helps to have the small things to cross off for a sense of accomplishment for the day.
Stop what your doing - Walking away and doing something like walking the dog, cleaning your house, or just reading a book will help to clear your mind to start again. This one really works. When I walk away from the computer and take a break, when I come back I am ready to go.
