An Insanely Simple 3 Step Guide for Killing Procrastination
This method of increasing productivity triggers mechanisms in your brain that make us more likely to follow through.
You have something important you need to do but you can‘t figure out how to stop procrastinating.
You put it off for a few days, which turn into more than a few.
Recently I‘ve been using a simple tool that has helped me defeat my procrastination and lack of focus.
It takes less than 15 minutes each day and it’s a simple, proven, easy to use method.
Here‘s the step-by-step:
#1 Prep Yourself the Previous Night
An evening routine is an incredibly effective way of setting yourself up for success for the next day.
They cut down on decision fatigue, organize your day, and align your evening with success.
Leave your mental capacity for your important tasks the next day by getting the simple, necessary tasks like choosing what to wear and what to eat out of the way.
#2 Set Most Important Missions (MIMs)
Be honest with yourself and set 2-3 MIMs for action the following day.
These should be the important work, not administrative work like answering emails or spending an hour on Twitter.
All of our missions will be different, but a true MIM will work toward reaching a goal.
#3 Schedule the Time
After you‘ve set your MIMs as part of your evening routine, schedule the time in your calendar.
Scheduling is an incredibly easy but effective tool to get the important work done.
Spend two minutes considering where you can fit the time into your day to work on your MIMs, and actually create the schedule.
