One of the most important parts of getting things done is simply starting and, unfortunately that’s where many of us fail. While we want to finish that important thing, there’s a hundred others that distract us instead. You probably know what that feels like. There’s a project you need to finish next week and you can complete it today if you want to. It’s 10 a.m. on a Saturday, you start your computer to get to work… and suddenly you accidentally spent the entire day browsing the internet or scrolling through Facebook.
You did the same things and procrastinated the entire week until finally the deadline is tomorrow. You now need to rush the project and with that quality of work it’ll be difficult to get a good grade. I know that’s what I was like when I was a student, and I know I shouldn’t be like that for the rest of my life. You probably think so too if you have the procrastination habit.
So how do you stop yourself from wasting time? Here are a few short tips from Napoleon Hill that can help you overcome procrastination. This isn’t just for getting school work or office projects done. You can also use this for your lifelong goals and aspirations.
