How to Overcome Procrastination

Procrastination can eat into our time and leave us feeling as though we have not achieved as much as we would have liked. In some cases, procrastination can prevent people from getting anything done. We all need to know how to deal with procrastination.

There are several things you can do immediately. Remove any major distractions that do not double up as a resource for study. For example, switch off your mobile phone, and tell your family about your study routine so they know that when you are working they should not disturb you. 

If you cannot work whilst listening to music, try not to leave your IPOD or MP3 player in easy reach when studying. Whatever distraction you have, find a way to reduce its impact by distancing it or setting a time and place for it that is outside of your study time.

2. You can overcome procrastination and stop procrastinating by being motivated and giving yourself achievable goals.
