8 Tips To Crush Procrastination

How do you define procrastination?

Wiki defines procrastination as "the action of unnecessarily and voluntarily delaying or postponing something despite knowing that there will be negative consequences for doing so." Webster further defines it as "to put off intentionally and habitually."

This begs the question, "Why?" Why do we procrastinate? Addressing the why can help us move forward and accomplish the task at hand. Feeling overwhelmed, not knowing where to begin, or the need to be perfect might be a few ideas that come to mind. First, we need to address the intention behind the behavior. Sometimes this involves the idea that the task we are procrastinating will create stress or anxiety that we want to avoid.

What are some techniques that you've used to crush procrastination? Understanding your "why" can be key in helping you overcome procrastination.
