We have all been there. Your are assigned a task that you really don’t want to deal with and seems to big to tackle. So you do what many people do, you procrastinate.
Laura Vanderkam wrote a great article on Bnet.com on 5 Ways to Stop Procrastinating. Here is her advice:
- Do a “home inspection” on the problem – During the home buying process, you seek a disinterested yet expert to come and inspect your home. At the end of the inspection, you are given a list of things to be fixed or updated, any insect issues, etc. The same can be applied to your task. Share it with a mentor, family member, or your boss. All you may have to do is shift some paragraphs around instead of writing a whole new treatment on that copy project.
