Alright, let’s be honest!
Is there something else you’re supposed to be doing right now?
Do you have a paper due in 10 hours?
Is there a stinky pile of laundry slowly inching its way across your bedroom floor?
You should be doing those things but instead,
you’re here listening to me lecture you on YouTube.
Wait wait wait wait wait don’t go away just yet.
The next five minutes will be the most productive bit of procrastination you have done all day.
And you’re not the only one procrastinating.
Thanks to a suggestion by one of our viewers
Today’s episode of WellCast is going to bring you a three step program to wrangle your monster of procrastination into submission.
About 20% of the population identifies themselves as chronic procrastinators.
People who constantly put off the things that they really need to do.
And that is because procrastination is about lying to yourself.
You know, telling yourself, “Uhh! I will have plenty of time to finish that paper tomorrow.”
when you know you are way behind.
In a recent study, two groups of university students were signed to write three papers in three weeks.
Group A was given the opportunity to turn in all 3 papers in at any point during those three weeks.
Group B, on the other hand, had strict weekly deadlines for each paper.
Ultimately, the ones who did the best on the papers were the ones given the strict deadlines.
Group A, the students who had to pick their own deadlines, they did pretty poorly.
Clearly, humans are not the best at regulating themselves.
So when it comes to procrastination, you have to trick yourself in getting the job done.
And this brings us to our WellCast three step method for stopping procrastination.
Please pause and print out your worksheet at watchwellcast.com.
Okay, are you ready?
Step one:
Eat an elephant.
Hey, how do you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time?
Look. What I’m saying is, you need time to digest or you are gonna make yourself sick?
Reward yourself for getting through parts of the project rather than waiting to reward yourself after the whole thing’s over.
Okay procrastinator,
think about that one project that you really need to get done, but calm down.
Instead of letting it overwhelm you, organize that project into small-bite size manageable segments.
Think about what needs to get done
and write down what you’re going to be doing to tackle this project hour by hour, and make it specific.
By breaking down this giant project into smaller tasks, this elephant will become a lot less daunting .
Step two:
Pick off the itsy-bitsy Goblins instead of going for the whole dragon.
The hardest part about starting any project is always starting a project.
A good way to get around this is to start a project off with the task you like the best.
Listen, when you do something that you like, your brain releases Dopamines which makes you happy.
Maybe it’s decorating a cover of a report, writing a snappy intro into an otherwise incredibly boring paper.
Step three:
Ignore the Siren’s songs… seriously
This step is straight out of Homer’s epic poem, “The Odyssey”.
In The Odyssey, our protagonist Ulysses is trying to get home.
Unfortunately, this requires maneuvering through a strait of water
where sailors are often lured under the rocks by creatures called “Sirens”.
Instead of giving up, Ulysses instructs his crew to tie him to the mast of the ship and for all of them to plug their ears.
No matter how much he yells and screams to head towards the beautiful sirens, the sailors must keep on track.
We’re not saying that you need to actually tie yourself up to anything,
but you should plan to clear any distractions that will hamper your ability to procrastinate later.
For example, if you’re a sucker for Facebook or online video games,
have your parents or your roommates change the internet password to keep you on track for studying.
The less temptations you give in to or have the ability to give in to, the better you’ll be at acing that exam.
Okay kiddos, let’s recap.
The best way to get around procrastination is to trick yourself into doing the work,
Ha ha! It’s true though.
We recommend that you do this in one of three ways:
Number 1: Breaking your tasks into segments;
in other words, you got had to eat that elephant.
Number 2: Start with the most enjoyable part of the project.
Go for those itsy-bitsy Goblins.
And number 3: Avoid that siren song.
Clear out those distractions and see you can get the job done.
