My Biggest Productivity Killer
I sleep on average 6 hours a day/night.
I wake up at 4:45 am and get straight up out of my bed.
If I procrastinate that one little habit, then I will simply fall back asleep.
Procrastinating anything has been my biggest productivity killer by far.
If I procrastinate telling my wife about something, I usually forget about it shortly afterwards. And that never ends well especially if she’s expecting me to be somewhere and I had other plans.
If I procrastinate getting straight out of bed, it throws off my whole morning routine.
I don’t start working out on time. I don’t take the dog out for her morning constitutional. etc. etc.
How Do You Fix Procrastination?
According to MindTools:
“Once you understand why you’re procrastinating, come up with some strategies to overcome it. For instance, if you’re not motivated to get started, think about all of the unpleasant consequences of not completing this task.
If you’re procrastinating because of disorganization, take time to prioritize your To-Do List, and then focus on one task at a time. Or, if you’re procrastinating because of perfectionism, ask yourself how perfect the work actually has to be.”
