START ACTING...

Happy new month folks.
May this month deliver to us all our heart desires. May July treat us better than June.. Amen

Well, this ongoing BVN registration inspired this post.
Shuooo who have been to the bank lately? The crowd ehen is not funny o thank God the date has been extended till October 31st but i tell you many people will still not register same way many do not have their voters card(PVC) till date. (i think some people need cooperate deliverance sha).

As a way to inspire us this month, I want us to talk about Procrastination.

Procrastination, I have come to discover, it's a trap we have all have fallen into at one point or another especially if we are really occupied with a lot of important tasks and activities.

Procrastination is simply leaving something till the last minute before it is done.
For instance you have a project that is due in a week, this project needs a lot of work and as usual you have not started. As the days go on, you start to realize that that there is only two days left and that you had been very busy in the past days with other important commitments too. So now, you have to cram everything into these two nights and you expect to get excellent results?
Nope! goal getters don't achieve their goals that way.

This last minute approach does not sound promising at all. See what's happening with the BVN registration now. Many people had time to get theirs done before now but mmba procrastination will not allow them. Please lovelies, as we begin this new month, we need to start learning from our mistakes and try as much as possible to stop procrastinating and start acting.

These three things will help us if we must stop procrastination.

1. Always Plan Ahead Of Time

This is one of the common reasons why we fall into the mistake of procrastination; we simply do not make plans ahead.
A lot of people think they do not have time everyday to spare to do that assignment that you have been planning to achieve.

However, this is the idea you get when you look at your day and the activities you have to accomplish without any planning. I am not saying we are not busy, but you will be shocked to find and realize that if you plan things out well and ahead of time, you will find time to spare.

2.  Divide Or Break Down Your Tasks.

Have you ever been in a situation where you have a large task at hand and just persuade yourself to leave it until the last moment? (it happens to most of us).
Procrastination can be the common result of having a big task or activity to perform, but thinking of it to be a whole lot of hard work.
A good strategy to use in such a case would be to divide up that large assignment or project into smaller jobs. What this will do is create a good impression that you a fewer thing to complete that it will take less time thereby facilitating the large task that you need to get done.

3.  Look For A More Friendly Environment.

This may sound weird but take a look at your work space (office), or room (i do this alot). Do they make you feel like you want to work hard and achieve great results, or do they make you feel like you want to sleep and not do nothing at all? If they make you want to slack off then change your environment. This can help prevent procrastination and induce more work by inspiring you.

In conclusion, a lot of us faces procrastination during our studies or work but what makes you different is finding the right source or atmosphere that will help you overcome this hurdle and jump over it. So start acting and prevent procrastination.

As we begin this month and the second half of the year, there's still a lot to be achieved. We still have 6 full months filled with so many opportunities let us not wait till the last minute before we get things done, let's start acting now and you will be amazed how much you can achieve with these remaining months of 2015.

Extras.
