The key is careful planning. Careful is the operative word in that sentence. For procrastinators, planning isn’t usually a problem. They love planning because planning involves not actually doing! Procrastinators’ plans often have little actual thought, are vague or open-ended, and can lack detail or direction. Instead, you’ll need to make a detailed plan. The following steps will guide you.
- Establish the objective.
- Prioritise what you want to achieve, putting the most important task first.
- Gather the information you need to make a decision.
- Consider all of the sensible options and select the best one.
- Take action.
