Procrastination seems to be a huge problem for many of the people I speak with these days.
It’s not uncommon for me to be asked how I combat procrastination and persistently contribute to this blog every day on top of a full-time job and every other project I’m currently working on.
The truth is, I am a sucker for procrastination, I just do it far less often than I used to.
There are a tonne of ways to maximise your productivity. So much so that I’m writing an eBook on the subject.
But one of my favourite pieces of advice, one that I find myself regularly considering, consciously or otherwise, is to commit to the little things.
Put the lid back on the toothpaste, throw the cardboard tube away when you finish a roll of toilet paper, take out the bins before they overflow, organise your mail, make your bed on a morning, eat breakfast, the list goes on.
Committing to the little things and being consistent with it makes you a person that does and people that do, don’t procrastinate.
You’ll find that after awhile, the little things get bigger and bigger and before you know it, you’re tackling the more important tasks that you’ve been putting off with less effort than you’d originally anticipated it would take.
