Procrastinating? Move Ahead
It’s human nature to avoid situations that make us uncomfortable or tend not to go well. Sometimes, though, the smarter choice is to move ahead rather than try to sidestep the problem. If you’re looking for a new job, after a string of rejections from employers, don’t waste your time by checking out your friends’ Facebook profiles.
When you try to talk yourself into action, remind yourself of the intended goal. Better yet, don’t even put yourself into those timewasting situations. It’s easier not to pull up Facebook than it is to stop after one minute. (If you waste too much time on certain websites, download LeechBlock or StayFocusd, which you can program to limit your time on them.)
