She was smart, but her constant procrastination led her to be late with almost every assignment.
So how do you overcome procrastination?
Firstly you work out your Why. (Your Definiteness of Purpose) and get it burned into your mind. The more you burn it into your mind the less likely you will be to procrastinate. You will prioritise the tasks that will lead to you succeeding in your definiteness of purpose. Always at the top of mind you will be thinking about your definiteness of purpose, your why. Because your definiteness of purpose is always at the top of your mind you will do everything you can do achieve your definite of purpose.
There are some situations where procrastination is good. This is putting off minor and unimportant tasks so you can concentrate on the major tasks that lead to achievement of your definiteness of purpose. Sometimes this procrastination can save you from putting effort in where you shouldn’t exert it.
There are several reasons for Procrastination and all can be overcome. The list of reasons I have found is Stress, Overwhelm , Laziness, Lack of Motivation, Lack of Discipline, Poor time Management. Lack of Skills, and perfectionism.
I have just read a blog from Steve Palina.com
