Tips for Procrastinators

  • Do you put jobs off because you are a perfectionist? If so, give yourself permission to do a "good" job instead of a "perfect" job and get started.

  • Overwhelmed by your many assignments? List each one, reorder the list and then focus only on the important ones.

  • If a task seems formidable, split it into smaller tasks. Instead of "cleaning out the basement," work on one corner for 30 minutes -- starting now.
