Procrastination is a bad habit, and it feeds on itself – if you procrastinate once and get away with it, it’s much easier to do it again. But procrastination makes you look bad, because you end up rushing through the task, and it makes you feel bad, because putting off important tasks and handing in rushed or lackluster work can damage your self-esteem.
This Skillbook will help you to get out of the procrastination habit. In under an hour, we’ll look at how you can:
Recognize the signs and symptoms of procrastination.
Plan to complete high-value tasks.
Set the stage for getting work done.
When you focus your attention on doing rather than avoiding, you’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish. As a result, you will increase your value to your employer, and lower your stress levels.
