1. Discover Why You Are Procrastinating 

Everything has got it cause, and without knowing it, a problem  may not be solved. Find the root of what is making you procrastinate in the first place. Could it be self-sabotage? Is it fear? Once you create an awareness around why you are procrastinating in the first place, that knowledge makes it easier for change.

2. Lack of Confidence and Self-belief 

People who believe that they won’t be successful at the task at hand are more likely to procrastinate. They limit their confident level. One way to increase your confidence is to consider how others who have been in a similar situation have been successful regardless of the task. Doing this will make the task at hand seem more achievable and provide a possible guide to follow.

 3. Overwhelming To-do List.

When your to-do list has so many tasks in it that you feel as if you’ll never be able to finish them all, it becomes hard even to start. Thinking of the work as an activity rather than a bunch of action items makes them seem less onerous and easy to tackle. Combine the tasks into a conceptual activity; setting a time limit for how long you’ll pursue that activity with discipline.

4. Personal Interest.

When you are creative with an active mind, you naturally put off any activity that doesn’t personally interest you which breeds procrastination at the long run.To get rid of this habit, challenge and reward yourself. Consider all your task -both interested and less interested- .set a time limit for completing a single task in the set and then compete against yourself to see if you can beat that time limit. Always reward yourself each time when the clock is beaten.

5. Get a Trusted ‘Reviewer’ or a Coach

People sometimes procrastinate from the realization that if they screw a certain task up, it might mean losing their job or missing a huge opportunity.So you simply avoid it because you don’t want to risk failure. Contact somebody you trust and ask if they’ll review your work  or act as a sounding board. Doing the task for your reviewer is low-risk which makes the task easier to start. The reviewer’s perspective and approval provides you extra confidence when you actually execute the task.

6. Don’t Multitask
