Do it. Just do it.
Don’t let your dreams be dreams. No, what are you waiting for?
Do it! Just do it!
Yes you can.
Just do it.

If deadlines are always out of reach, your work is full of errors, and it is common for you to have no new progress, you might have a problem. Your career success is often dependent on your attitude, on how prudent you are at your tasks and on your ability to ward off procrastination.
Of course you know you procrastinate, but the pressing question here is, can you fix it? Here’s a cool infographic by parcelhero that will help determine the type of procrastinator you are. Once you have identified yourself as belonging to any of the groups – be it daredevil, self-saboteur, ostrich, chicken or perfectionist – get the tips you need to better cope with your work and time.
If you’re a mixture of all the groups or you were procrastinating on whether to read this infographic, here are some of the summarized tips that are useful for everyone:
- Get organised: Set yourself tighter deadlines and use the adrenaline rush productively while managing your team – self-regulate with penalties for not meeting these targets.
- Plan for obstacles: List potential obstacles to getting things done ahead of time, and plan countermeasures, e.g., “Whenever I check Facebook, I take a short break.”
- Self-talk confidently: Notice that you are talking to yourself when procrastinating. Think positively – instead of “I can’t”, say “I will”.
- Swiss-cheese the big tasks: Handle the biggest tasks first by breaking them down into smaller manageable ones. Devote small amounts of time and achieve as much as you can in each to boost your momentum.
- Keep it real: Set yourself reasonable targets that you know you can manage and do your best to meet them. Perfection is impossible, but you can learn from mistakes.
