10 TIPS To Overcome Laziness

No comments :


Tips To Stop Being Lazy
https://www.momentsofpositivity.com/      It happens to all of us. Sometimes, we just don't feel like doing anything, be it work, chores, or whatever… it's easier to chill out, relax, and forget about responsibilities. But what if this turns into a habit, and things start to pile up? Laziness can have a negative effect on both your personal and professional life. If it seems like you've slipped into a lazy cycle and you’re being unproductive, you should consider the following tips to get your life back on track!
 1 - Make Sure You're Not Overwhelmed 
    Sometimes, we have so much to do, that we just get overwhelmed, and then we end up doing nothing. It’s necessary to own realistic expectations regarding what you’re really ready to accomplish. If you have too much on your plate and no idea how you're gonna get it all done, you may just be overwhelmed, and not necessarily lazy.
2 - Get Motivated 
    Most of the time, laziness is due to a lack of motivation. Try to inspire yourself by thinking about the importance of whatever it's you wish to try and do. And if it's hard for you to stay motivated, here’s something you can try… Make a list of key points or reasons that you can reference when you need an extra push.
3 - Value Your Time
    Make the time you spend working on your tasks productive. Look at your to-do list and prioritize. This will make it harder for deadlines to sneak up on you, and easier to work productively - even if it's in short bursts.
 4 - Think About The Benefits
    Focusing on the difficulties of carrying out a task, leads to discouragement, avoidance of taking action, and laziness. Instead of thinking about the difficulties or obstacles, think about the benefits you will gain once you start taking action. When you concentrate on advantages and goals, productivity becomes much more rewarding. Learn the worth of every task and so work towards it.
 5 - Think About The Consequences
    Think about what will happen if you don't get your task or chore done. In most cases, merely considering the results of not acting, can push you to take action!
6 - Switch Things Up
     If you tend to leave the most complicated or tough tasks for last, switch it up, and begin doing those things first. You don't want to spread yourself too thin. Pick one or two things to focus on and fully devote yourself to working on those tasks. Remember, you have to work to reach your goal; it's not going to happen right away.
 7 - Track Your Progress
     Sticking to new changes can be challenging. Tracking results is an effective way to help make new habits stick. If you can see that ‘holding yourself accountable’ is helping you reach your goal, it will be much easier to keep up.

8 - Schedule Break Times
     You need to take an occasional break, but make sure that time is limited, so you don't lose momentum. For example, you could commit to working on your tasks for the first 45 minutes of every hour and then take a 15-minute break.
 9 - Look For Alternatives
     Is there a better, or more efficient way to do things? Think of ways you can be more effective. You’ll find that the more you streamline, automate, delegate, and outsource, the more you’ll get done with the same level of effort.
10 - Take Some Time Off
    Perhaps you're just too tired… With work, school, and all other stresses of everyday life, it can get pretty difficult to wake up early, exercise, get chores done, and do whatever else you need to do. It's easy to fall behind once you feel exhausted. If you're feeling such as you got to take a bit time to recharge, then take it!
     No one is immune to occasional laziness. However, it's how you deal with it and motivate yourself that can keep you on the right track. Everyone has a growing to-do list, and it can sometimes feel overwhelming. Overcoming laziness is achieved through a series of daily actions and activities - by choosing to act, instead of remaining passive. And every time you choose to act, you increase your ability to win, achieve goals and improve your life. So start right now! Develop the self-discipline you need, and get your works done!

Strengthen Your Focus to Achieve Your Goals

No comments :


“Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.”
                                                             Alexander Graham Bell
Strengthen Your Focus to Achieve Your Goals
            Being focused is extremely beneficial in all areas of your life, but it is something that must be nurtured and built within yourself. Once strengthened, this focus will be an advantage in achieving your goals. Why? Because by having unshakable focus, determination and intensity in purpose will have been developed along the way.

How would you rate the strength of your focus on a scale of 1 to 10?
            Personally, I rate mine at about 6. At times, my focus is amazingly intense, allowing me to have the determination I need to complete projects and concentrate on the steps needed to accomplish my goals. But, then, I find myself floundering, feeling overwhelmed, and searching for that powerful feeling of focus again. The intense desire to change a particular situation in my life is the catalyst that I need to propel myself back into that state of focus.

To strengthen your focus you need to be committed to your goals.

            You must be absolutely committed to reaching your goals. If you’re not completely committed to what you want to accomplish, it will be very difficult to strengthen your focus.
             To be successful in achieving your goals, you must not harbor any second thoughts, doubts, or excuses. Don’t let yourself “cruise” along when everything seems to be going smoothly – this can cause you to backslide into that lackadaisical mindset. Remind yourself daily what your goals are and why you want to accomplish them – don’t lose your focus!
             Remember, just having the desire will not guarantee accomplishment. You can desire something without firm commitment, so be sure to distinguish between the two and take the appropriate actions. Be honest with yourself and know that this is something you truly want to see through until the end.

Never put off for tomorrow, what you can do today

Procrastination means delaying work or several tasks for a later time.
www.momentsofpositivity.com           Everyone procrastinates. Sometimes it’s fun to procrastinate. Sometimes waiting until just before a deadline is very motivating. And sometimes procrastination is even necessary—as a way to put off a dreaded task until we feel more energetic, prepared, or able to do it.
But sooner or later, chronic procrastinating will begin to hamper job performance. It will also affect our mood and state of mind by generating worry, fear, or added stress. Perhaps most serious for people in a leadership position, procrastinating may cause our peers and employees to feel that we’re holding up progress.
      If procrastination has become a problem for you—and you know who you try these to change your behavior so you can be more productive. An added benefit is that you’ll feel more upbeat, less worried and stressed, and more confident about your reputation and effectiveness.
 Put it in writing.
 Write down the task you’ve been putting off. Doing this brings the project to the front of your mind so you can’t easily ignore it.
