Did you ever have one of those days when you’ve got like fifty-bazillion things to do and yet all you seem to get done is updating your Facebook status and maybe a shower, if you’re lucky?
I’ve been there. Who hasn’t?
From the outside, it might just look like you’re procrastinating, but in reality, it feels a little more like being paralyzed, am I right?
Well, here’s a tip that might just help you to move past that whole “feeling so overwhelmed that I can’t do a single thing” issue. I hope you’re sitting down for this one, because it is seriously going to blow your mind.
Ready? Here it is: the big secret.
How to Cure Procrastination
Just do SOMETHING. Pick one thing on your list, even something tiny and easy, and start doing it. Don’t stop until you’re finished. Maybe this is something small–like, I don’t know, a blog post. Or maybe it’s something bigger, like finally organizing your kitchen cabinets. It doesn’t matter what it is. Just do one thing.
When you’re done, look at what you’ve done and pat yourself on the back. You have just ended the vicious cycle of procrastination and paralyisis, and you are on your way to getting back on the productive horse.
Who knew it could be so easy?
And, once you’ve got your juices flowing, do one more thing. And so on.
I know, this all sounds positively basic and simple–but every now and then, we all need someone to tell us, as Nike once did, to Just Do It.
So, enough procrastination. Enough paralysis. Just do SOMETHING. Are you with me?
