One of the biggest things I think can help us when we find ourselves procrastinating is to understand why we’re procrastinating.
There’s always a reason.
For me, it’s usually because whatever I want to do feels too big or overwhelming or I’m not sure how to do it or where to start. It could also be because I don’t want to do whatever it is and would prefer not to do it.
Once I started to observe myself and understand why I would procrastinate, it made it easier to do whatever it was that I was avoiding.
For example, if something feels too big or overwhelming, I’ll think more in terms of “baby steps.” What’s one small thing I can do to move in the direction of it? If it’s something I don’t want to do, I’ll remind myself about why I have to do it or how (great) I’ll feel when it’s done.
