10 Things You Can Accomplish While You Procrastinate

9 Things You Can Accomplish While You Procrastinate 1024x683, Tri-Star Martial Arts Academy Bradley & New Lenox
If you’re going to procrastinate you can try to make the most of it. Procrastination is rarely a good thing, but there are ways to prevent it from being a complete waste of time. If you must procrastinate, at least procrastinate well.
Most of us procrastinate very poorly. We choose to spend our time on tasks that provide zero value other than entertainment.
In fact, we often engage in procrastination behaviors that are even harmful, like eating unhealthy food or spending money needlessly.

Procrastinate skillfully if you must procrastinate at all:

  1. Respond to important emails. Note that this tip uses the word “important.” Responding to important emails is work that has to be done. If you’re going to waste time, this isn’t a bad way to spend it. Give yourself a time limit and accomplish as much as you can.
  2. Visualize your goals. Assuming you already have some well-defined goals, spend a few minutes visualizing your success. It might give a needed boost your motivation. If you don’t have goals, now would be a good time to make some.
  3. Clean and tidy. Clean your bathroom. Tidy your desk. Take out the trash. Mop the floors. If your home or office is a mess, use the time to bring some order and cleanliness back into your life. Heck clean your top dresser drawer that has way more then sock and underwear in it. ?
  4. Pay your bills. They won’t pay themselves. Knock out this important task and get it off your plate. Many people procrastinate when it comes time to pay their bills. So, this is a great activity to perform when you’re avoiding other important things.
  5. Read something worthwhile. What do you need to learn? Do you have any required reading for work or school? Read it now. It keeps your brain engaged in a meaningful way.
  6. Do your shopping. This doesn’t apply to pleasure shopping. This is shopping for groceries or for drywall to fix the hole in the mudroom. What shopping do you need to do in the next week? Get it done today and free up that time later in the week.
  7. Call your family. Call a relative you know you should call but haven’t for a while. Pick up the phone and get this important task out of the way. You’ll feel better afterwards. You might find that returning back to the work at hand isn’t as bad as you thought!
  8. Update your resume. Maybe you’re feeling uninspired because you don’t like your current employment situation. No problem! Update your resume. You’ve probably been procrastinating on this anyway.
  9. Exercise. The latest recommendation is for everyone to get 3.5 hours of exercise per week. How much are you exercising right now? If you’re under the recommendation, you may as well exercise while you’re procrastinating.
    1. Martial arts is a wonderful exercise. Not to mention you get to learn how to protect yourself in the process. CLICK HERE to get a FREE trial!

Everyone procrastinates, but some people procrastinate much better than others. Avoiding your work doesn’t mean you have to waste your time. Simply substitute another important task for the task you should be doing.
You can accomplish a lot while you’re procrastinating. Then, return back to your primary task as soon as possible.
