Many among us, on many instances, have habit of putting aside to a later time or day some things that needs to be done or acted upon like a project, work, job, or duty. For purposes of discussion, we will confine ourselves to procrastination on repair works typically at home. It equates to other circumstances as well.
Procrastination is one habit that is hard to beat. We procrastinate for various reasons:
1. When we think that work that needs to be done can afford to wait or be delayed.
2. When we are busy with something else we think is more important.
3. When we do not like work involved or when it is difficult to do.
4. When we are not sure if work that needs to be done will be effective.
5. When things needed in work are not yet available or incomplete.
6. When we forget about it.
And many other reasons like laziness or a combination of above.
Hard to beat as it is, we stand to gain more and virtually loose nothing if we overturn this habit.
Check out these helpful tips:
1. When we think that a work can afford to be delayed, it can also afford not to be delayed. By having work done without further delay, we feel a sigh of relief making load of work on our back lesser or lighter, which eventually makes us feel better.
2. After being busy with something more important and you have time to spare, this spare time can be used to attend to things on pending list.
