How many times have you set a program to achieve a goal in mind, and after some time you realized that you haven’t done anything yet? Don’t worry we have all been there one time and in this article, I’m going to tell you how I was able to overcome this bad habit and how by the end of this article you will too.
- Start taking cold showers
I know I know, everyone is telling you that cold showers are good for you, but are they really that beneficial, and if so, why? Well, taking cold showers especially in the morning will improve your mindset. It will improve the mindset of you doing a thing that you really hate or just don’t want to do. So, after some time of taking cold showers, you will be able to do things that you have to do even if you don’t like them. Plus, you will spend much less time showering.
- Always get enough sleep
I can’t stop talking about how important sleep is. You just can’t be creative and productive during the day if you’re exhausted. You will be like a drunk person and you won’t be able to think clearly. Get at least 6 hours of sleep everyday and you will still have 18 more hours to go.
“Working hard doesn’t mean don’t sleep but it means don’t waste your time while you’re awake “ – Gary Vaynerchuk
- Stay with friends who have the same goal as you
Get friends who share the same goal as you. Whether your goal is to learn something, win some competition or maybe get a good mark on some subject at school, do that with a friend who has that goal too. You will be always motivated and maybe you will compete with that friend on that goal.
You’ve tried all the steps I mentioned and you still can’t defeat procrastination? Don’t worry I got you. This is the most effective thing you can do to stop procrastinating as it worked for me personally. Even though I don’t recommend you doing this. All this strategy is about you putting yourself in a situation where failure will cost you something valuable. For example, you want to finish some courses by the end of the month and you really like playing video games. You will tell your friend or your parents to take your PC or your PlayStation if you haven’t finished that course by the end of the month.
One thing to mention is that you have to execute. Reading this article is good but still not enough. You have to execute to get results.
