In the summer, we have more time for whatever we want and/ or need to do. This extra time can work for or against us depending on how we use it. It can be easy to just procrastinate tasks to do something that seems more enjoyable, especially in the summer. There are ways that you can be productive and beat procrastination even during the summertime.
Start off with the hard task
A great way to beat procrastination is to start with the task that you don’t particularly want to do. This may seem counterproductive, but I’ve found it to be highly effective. By completing the task that isn’t necessarily the favorite on your to-do list, you get it out the way and can then focus on the tasks that you’re excited to complete. A great book that explains more in-depth about why you should complete your dreadful task first is Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time.
