How I Control My Case of Procrastination

By Marty Nemko

It's tempting to procrastinate on odious tasks. How do I control the temptation? I try to stay in the moment. I don't think about what fun thing I could be doing instead, or how much work lies ahead of me. I try to stay focused on whatever my next few-second (literally) task is. When I feel a compelling urge to play instead of work, I usually indulge it--guilt free. For example, I might take a few minutes to surf the Net or grab a snack, but I try to keep the play short so there's enough time to get my work done.

What can you do today?
Might one of the ideas above work help you to procrastinate less?
