stop procrastinating

I am the worst offender when it comes to putting things off. I will start my diet next week. I’ll start exercising tomorrow. I’ll finish my project later.

Here are 8 ways to stop procrastinating, from the Procrastination Research Group:

  1. Make a list of everything you have to do.
  2. Write an intention statement.
  3. Set realistic goals.
  4. Break it down.
  5. Make your task meaningful.
  6. Promise yourself a reward.
  7. Eliminate tasks you never plan to do.
  8. Estimate the amount of time you think it will take you to complete a task, then increase that amount by 100%.

I’ll start following them next week. (Found via LifeHacker.)
