List Your Way To Success
So, what is Time

Why do we Procrastinate?
Other causes of procrastination include:
Procrastinators work as many hours in the day as other people (and often work longer hours) but they invest their time in the wrong tasks. Sometimes this is simply because they don't understand the difference between urgent tasks and important tasks, and jump straight into getting on with urgent tasks that aren't actually important.
Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you lost it, you can never get it back.

In a nutshell, you procrastinate when you put off things that you should be focusing on

Another common cause of procrastination is feeling overwhelmed by the task. You may
not know where to begin. Or you may doubt that you have the skills or resources you
think you need. So you seek comfort in doing tasks you know you're capable of
completing. Unfortunately, the big task isn't going to go away – truly important tasks
rarely do.
Waiting for the “right” mood or the “right” time to tackle the important task at hand
A fear of failure or even success

Step 1: Recognise that you're Procrastinating
If you're honest with yourself, you probably know when you're procrastinating. But to be
sure, you first need to make sure you know your priorities. Putting off an unimportant task isn't procrastination, it's probably good prioritization.
How do you overcome Procrastination?
Step 2: Work out WHY you are Procrastinating
Why you procrastinate can depend on both you and the task. But it's important to
understand what the reasons are for procrastination for each situation, so that you can select the best approach for overcoming your reluctance to get going.
Step 3: Get over it
If you are putting something off because you just don't want to do it, you need to find ways of motivating yourself to get moving. The following approaches can be helpful:
Make your own rewards
Identify the unpleasant consequences
of NOT doing the task.
It means
habits or
that cause
you to
waste time.

How many things did most
of you have in the
URGENT section?
In the NOT IMPORTANT section?
When an urgent activity collides
with a not important activity,
what should you do?

How do you remember to do the
urgent things first?
This type of list entails
writing down what you
need to do day by day.
Record your to-do's, then
check off each item as you
complete it.
This allows you to see your
progress and feel a sense of
accomplishment each day.
One of the most effective, easy to use and most popular methods
of tracking and completing college tasks involves the use of a weekly calendar book. When open, a whole week is displayed before you. This way it is easier to see what is coming up a day or more ahead.
