Self-Help: How to stop avoiding work and procrastination so you can achieve your goals

Sometimes, even the best of us can find ourselves procrastinating and putting off work tasks. Well, Ducky Darlings, here are some tips to help you break the cycle, get your work routine back on track and smash your goals, by Rosa Fairfield.


Be more chill vs be more organised
You may think the obvious solution to getting a task done is to really commit to it and to go all Type A. But, that really depends on what works for you.

Being more organised
This is the classic approach of writing a to do list and structuring your day. This can help if you find yourself getting distracted often and struggling with organisation. Breaking a task down into manageable parts, and setting deadlines, can help the task become easier to complete.

Being more chill
This is something that helps me. The moment I start planning my day or thinking about the tasks I have to complete, I get overwhelmed and end up doing nothing. On the other hand, as long as I have a vague notion of what I'm working on in my head, when I don't force it and allow myself the freedom to whatever I want with my day, I get much more work done. I find I'll naturally start a task, I'll even surprise myself with how quickly I manage to complete it.


Ask yourself why?
This point leads on nicely from the last. To tackle a specific issue you're having, you need to understand why you're doing it. So, really try to be in tune with yourself and have an open mind.  If you read articles on the internet, this one included, it's easy to get influenced. You start thinking: 'Oh, that must be the reason why I'm doing something'. The internet doesn't know you though, so it really can't make the decision for you.

Turn a task into a game
If you're finding a task difficult to complete, because you're anxious about it or feel under too much pressure, then this could work for you. It could even work if you're finding a task boring. But, yep, don't think of it in real life, 'the is work', terms. Play a little imaginary game with yourself, create a character who you can adopt and role play it. If you're trying to write a blog post for instance, you could imagine the world is under threat by an evil super villain and you're a reporter. The post your writing is instrumental in stopping the villain from taking over the world.

This can help if you work in the creative industries too, to keep your imagination active.


Switch your mind to autopilot
When you get to a point where you've done a certain task a lot, it can help to let your mind relax and allow your instincts to take over. Sometimes, trying too hard can lead to you becoming stressed and making even more mistakes. Sports players often adopt a similar technique.

Allow yourself to have different options vs one option
Again, this all depends on what works best for you. If you find yourself struggling to concentrate on more than one thing at once, set yourself some distraction free time. Time where you only have to think about that one thing. On he opposite end, if you just can't work on a task when it's the only one available, try introducing more projects into your life. Having different options there can help because it gives you the power to choose what you're doing. If you're struggling on one thing, you can opt to do a different task and come back to that one when it feels right.
Know the difference between good and bad procrastination 
Sometimes procrastination can be good. If you never get any work done at all or rush through everything at the last minute, that might be negatively affecting your life. On the other hand, if you're having a bad mental health day, it can help you to work on a smaller, less-important task. This might relax you. Then you can commit to higher priority tasks when you're feeling better.

Sometimes, a little procrastination can also allow you to be more creative. If you distract yourself for an hour or so before you start a task, you may find your mind wonders and naturally comes up with new ideas.
