Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow! So how does one overcome procrastination? First things first: break it down. Big tasks can be terrifying, so we put them off. Breaking it down into 3 or 4 smaller tasks can reduce the fear. Science says that you’re more likely to get moving on a task if you show yourself some compassion rather than beating yourself up about it. Last but not least: be mindful. Perfectionism and fear of failure are at the root of some procrastination. Quickly eliminate negative thoughts when they creep in. In short: you need to doubt the doubts and get on with the task confidently. You’ve got this.
