Ways to End Procrastination

People get behind because they procrastinate and then they procrastinate because they feel overwhelmed that they are so far behind. It's a vicious cycle but it can be broken. So how do we get everything done and keep our sanity?

I started a business 23 years ago and a second one (CorpNote) 14 years ago; so I really have to manage procrastination if I want to make everything happen and not be stressed out. Here are some of the ways I combat the "overwhelmed" feeling. They might not all be right for everyone but I hope that a couple of these tips are meaningful for you.

I love the feeling of seeing items physically crossed off on a "to-do" list. Even if I didn't get everything done that I wanted to, I can see the evidence of the items I did cross off my list. And I can't lament over what I didn't get done, I just add them to the do list for the next day and move on. What I have discovered is that when life gets busy, I can get an incredible amount of stuff done. I may not always reach the end of my big, never ending 'to-do' list but I know, at the end of the day, I have accomplished what I needed to.
