Bus47Overcoming procrastination could be a difficult task for many but today I am going to share a very easy method which anyone can use to overcome procrastination.

Did you ever felt that you procrastinate most of the time, if yes.. then you must read this article and learn how to not procrastinate…

Well, before I start, I must tell you that you are the not the one suffering from procrastination, there are many alike you and even I also use to procrastinate my tasks.

You do it, I do it and almost everyone do it…

There is a one simple method which you can use to overcome procrastination and beleive me if you apply that, you will be able to accomplish most of your tasks within defined period of time.

So, in general what happens with us… we have a task and we delay the things which can be done very easily but we made a habit of delaying tasks.

Pciture this… you have to read the PDF you just downloaded but you said, ok.. no issue will read it later …

Now understand why this happens, why we keep on delaying things we can do easily.. why? why?

Why do people procrastinate?

Simply because it is not a matter of life and death …
Simply because nothing is at stake?

Ok, tell me … why don’t we break the traffic rules on the road .. it is not because we can not break but the fact is that we are afraid of a ticket. We know we have to pay the price if we break the rule and we don’t want to lose our money for a silly things… right!

Let me tell you about me ..

For the last few months, my wife was insisting and asking me to accompany her for a walk in the evening which, as usual, i delayed (procrastinate 😉 ) It was not that I couldn’t go .. I have ample time in the evening but i always had an excuse ready ….

But last week, I decided to put an end to my procrastination and accompany her for a walk …

Now how did i do this?

I put something on stake … and that was my money …

I asked my wife that here is a cheque of Rs. 1000 and if I don’t go with you in the evening, you can shop whatever you like Cashhandwith the money … basically I hate useless shopping and I never allowed my wife to go for a shopping when it is not necessary…

Bang! the trick worked… now we both enjoy our evening walk even if it was for 20-30 mins. I do accompany her daily …

This happened only because I put my money on stake on the thing which I hate (Useless Shopping) .. I don’t want her to spend that money on shopping and to save that money, I accompany her…

Nobody wants to waste their money and that you can put on stake but this is not the only thing you can put on stake…

Let me tell you what my friend did .. he has to organize a webinar but he kept on delaying the things.. like creating slides etc .. So I asked him to decide a date and invite everyone on your list to your webinar … he said, “are you crazy.. nothing is ready as yet” … I said, “send an email and invite everyone” ..

he did the same and BANG! … he was able to complete all his tasks before the start of the webinar

So, how this happened?

Simply because when he saw people signing up to his webinar, he understood that now his reputation is on stake and he has to complete all the material before the webinar and if he don’t, he will look like a stupid person…

This method works and if you want to overcome procrastination… you need to put something on stake..

It could be your hard earned money!
It could be your valuable reputation!

or it could be anything which has some value in your eyes… and you will see a drastic change in your behaviour.

Bus1Ok, do one thing .. what I want you to do right now is to make a small goal today do not pick big goal but small goal and ask yourself that you are going to complete it within the next certain amount of time period and put something on stake … write a cheque for a person you hate and give it to your friend and tell him to handover the cheque to that person if you fail to complete your goal…

A small goal could be anything.. .it could be writing a blog post today or losing 2 pounds or read a good book .. whatever you want to and just write a 50 bucks cheque and handover the same to someone you trust and ask if you don’t complete the task, enjoy with the money…

or what you can do is to go to this website and set your goal, put something on stake and reach your goal … that’s it…

If you liked the idea and an article, please share the same with others so that they too can get benefit from it… and also comment and tell me what you are going to accomplish and what goals you have which you will complete within the certain amount of time…
