1. Remove emotions from the equation

Procrastination often turns into a cycle. We avoid some tasks, anxiety rises, from this we again postpone things for later.

How consider some psychologists, there are two main causes of procrastination. Some people are focused on advancement and progress and perceive tasks as goals. 

They usually put things off until later due to lack of motivation.

Other people are more focused on maintaining their existing position, income and position. 

They see tasks as duties and procrastinate out of fear: what if something goes wrong and they lose money or time?

Both reasons stem from our emotions. We wait for the moment when we will have enough desire or strength to get down to business.

You can, for example, pre-determine the exact date and time in order to take at least the first steps towards solving the problem. So you will remove emotions from the situation, and this will require only a little self- discipline .

2. Move by inertia

Along with the procrastination cycle, there is also a productivity cycle. Once you start completing a task, it will become easier to return to it each time.

 And after completing it, it will be easier to start the next one, as self-confidence will increase.

If you learn to maintain momentum in this way, you can achieve impressive results. Investor Warren Buffett - one of the richest people in the world - increased his capital more than 12 times between the ages of 32 and 44. 

He maintained this momentum and increased his savings by more than 70 times from the age of 44 to 56. Now his capital is more than 90 billion dollars.

3. Create a winning streak

Another way to overcome procrastination is based on our unwillingness to break the winning streak. Get yourself a calendar and mark each day when you have successfully worked on the necessary tasks.

If you want to postpone work for later again, just take a look at the calendar. 

A visual display of the days when you managed to overpower yourself will give strength and desire to move forward. 

After all, as we know from Newton's first law, moving bodies tend to maintain their speed.

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld used this method, for example. At the beginning of his career, when it was difficult for him to force himself to work, he started mark the days in which it turned out to come up with new jokes. Now he is one of the most successful comedians in the world.

4. Generate motivation

It is widely believed that one of the main components of success is motivation . Like, productive people are constantly motivated, so they achieve great results.

But writer Jeff Hayden sure that motivation is a product of work. She appears after a few hours of hard work. 

The desire to achieve goals arises after we take the first steps and see the first results.

This is another reason to stop waiting for the right mood, inspiration or surge of strength. 

Take action - even small victories add up to major achievements and bring you closer to your chosen goal.
