Beat Procrastination With Simple Tools

Squeezing in the most work and fun and pleasure you can out of the average day is one of many important topics I discuss on my Web site. Because the time we have is so limited, I'm always on the lookout for new ways to beat procrastination, the one thing that stands in the way of getting all those things done.

Steve Pavlina, the same man who successfully adjusted his lifestyle to polyphasic sleep to get more done (but recently stopped), has devised a great procrastination checklist. Although I won't spoil your pleasure by listing all of these interesting techniques, here are three fairly self-explanatory tools Steve discusses to help you break the procrastination bug:

  • Replace perfectionism with the permission to be human.
  • Substitute "finish it" with "begin it."
  • Change "have to" to "want to."
