This week’s radio show was a reader request: tips for beating procrastination and being more productive. I think it’s safe to say that all of us struggle with productivity, time-management and procrastination at one point or another. While most of us know how to “get things done” in the deadline sense of the of the word, most us also want to find a way to avoid those last-minute situations and get work done on a schedule that feels calmer and more in control.
I used to be a master of procrastination, but lately I feel proud of being able to push through that feeling a bit more often and get things done bit by bit. I also feel like I’ve gotten better at getting to the bottom of why I’m procrastinating about something, so I can work through those feelings and finish the job. I think the key for all of these work productivity problems is finding what works best for you, right now. Instead of “one solution fits all problems”, today’s show will give you a wide range of ideas, tips, techniques and ideas to help power through your procrastination issues and find ways to work smarter and more naturally to fit your ideal work style. Today’s show will include tips like:
- Starting Early + How to Make the Most of Weekends (without giving up your personal life)
- Ways to ‘Always Be Learning’ (so you stay on top of helpful tools)
- Embracing Time Blocks
- Combine Like Tasks
- Turn ‘No Fun’ Tasks Into Easy, Learned Behavior
- How To Take Time To Think Big Picture
Julia joined me on air this week as well, to share her ideas and perspective on pushing through huge blocks of work. She and I have slightly different working styles, so her insight on how to make these tips work for many different working needs are incredibly helpful. If you have trusted tips we didn’t cover here today, please feel free to share them in the comment section below! xo, grace
