End ProcrastinatingEnding procrastination may seem like something that can’t be attained.

You’ve likely procrastinated for a long time, and are so used to it by now that you can’t imagine yourself being productive. But, there is a way, and here are some tips that will really help stop procrastinating, if you put them to use:

Make time for breaks

If work seems overwhelming, you may have made too little breaks.

For example, working on the computer may strain the eyes, so you need to get up every 30 or 40 minutes and take a few minutes to rest your eyes properly.

Otherwise, even if you are not tired, it may seem so if you just strained your eyes.

Taking a few minutes break every once in awhile, stretching yourself and taking a short walk around the office will refresh you and help you get ready for the next chunk of work.

Find an inspiring workspace

This is one of those undervalued tips that people often read and never put into action.

Namely, if you are lucky enough to choose your work space, choose the one that is full of light that energizes you and fills you with positivity.

Otherwise, try to make your workspace as pleasant as possible. Bring in plants, pictures that inspire you, like those of your family, clean the clutter!

Clutter in the office can clutter your mind too, even if it may not seem so at first.

Set realistic goals

Setting realistic goals is important. You may want to be the emperor of the world, but you certainly won’t achieve that without breaking your goals into small, actionable tasks, and break those down into even smaller tasks.

Making your task actionable is the key. Something you can do right

now and ideally doesn’t take longer than an hour is perfect.


Prioritizing tasks is just as important as is making them actionable. If you want to be a pro sportsman, you can’t put anything but practice and eating right first in your life.

You’ve got to give your whole self to your goal. When you do, it’s easy to figure out what your priorities are.
Even if your goal is just short term, in order to be more efficient you need to sit down and write down what steps you can take, in small chunks like described above, and after that sort them by priority – the ones that you need to do first and can’t do without are your top priority, of course.

For example if you are writing a post – first you would make subheadings that would help you know in your mind what you will write about in general, then would come the research, and after that the first draft.
Second, third draft and so on come later, and are far less important.

Think positively

If you can always be positive, then there is nothing you won’t be able to achieve.

Many people remain positive by using positive affirmations which they repeat to themselves each day either when they wake up or just before they get to sleep.

Positive affirmations can also help people end their procrastination, among other things.

Find your sweet spot

Finding your sweet spot means learning about yourself. Figure out what the best time to get up is for you. What foods feel best when you eat them? Who out of the people you know motivates you best, who and what gives you the most energy?

It may take some time to figure out what your sweet spot is, but it’s well worth it in the end, as you will at least double your productivity.

    I do agree that taking breaks regularly really works well.

    I would also say that you should have a good intake of fluids such as the fruit juices or water. They really help in refreshing you.

    You know you makes some great points, but I’m just guna comment on that last one. Find your sweet spot. It seems like some people think they have to just force their way through their to do list, regardless of how they feel.

    Not that you should be putting everything off, but if you can find your sweet spot, and do the work when/how it flows naturally, not only will you be more productive, but your quality of work will also improve.

  14. Twitter:
    Speaking about sweet spot, some people tend to work at late night. They give some reasons, because most of time, a very quiet environment (with absolutely no distraction) will bring peace and tend to give more productivity while you’re working on something that need creativity. They will get a full throttle of ideas. But, it affects their healths and makes you sleepy when you should work in the morning.

Once you are able to come up with an attainable goal you can start taking steps towards realizing that goal. Prioritizing those steps will only get you that much closer that much faster. Great post and definitely sound advice!

    Hi Thomas,

    Solid tips here and guilty in some of them :)

    Breaks and realistic goals are must.

    To prioritize for example, with emails is very important making filters, and answer them as quick as possible, to not being all day avoiding the important tasks already planned.

    And of course, being positive make a good vibe with the universe, achieving them in a better way :)

    Hi, Thomas

    The “Find an inspiring workspace” hit the spot for me. It is so important!!!
    It is amazing how our environment influences our subconscious and we don’t know where the ‘negative’ thoughts are coming from, but it could simply come from a broom that sits in the corner (or the mess, for that matter).

    Thank you so much for this!
