Deciding To Move: How To Avoid Procrastination Finally

Procrastination is the leading killer of dreams. You want to do this assignment, but somehow you have an excuse that it can be done another day.  That is a mindset that always sees the availability of time, and when the time is up, and you have a deadline to meet, you begin rushing. Thus, your work turns mediocre or not done at all. When you have to move from the place you call home, procrastination will cripple all your plans. The only way to get started on the moving process is by pushing yourself to do everything that needs to be done.

How do you do this?

Below are some tips:

  1. Have a moving plan

This tool will tell you what to do when. Allocate sufficient time for every exercise and don’t allow excuses. Remember, you don’t ‘have’ time, you can only manage it. When it is gone, it’s not renewable? Let all things be done within the time allocated and shun distraction of all kinds. That leads me to the next aspect.

  1. Avoid distracters

These are things or people that come your way, without notice and demand a share of your time. Distractions are dream killers and should be allowed only after you have executed your daily schedule. Shun them like leprosy if you want to begin moving. Remember you have the moving service provider coming in a day or two; you have things to pack, documents to obtain and subscriptions to shut. Shun them and eventually they will disappear.

  1. Delegate but supervise

There is always the wrong belief that you can relax once you have delegated all activities. However, time-and-again, delegation without supervision leads to unpleasant surprises.

Be a hands-on manager and don’t let anything get to the box without you looking at it.

  1. Find an accountability partner

This is someone who will check on you to ensure that you have your goals achieved at the specified time. This should be someone who is also busy – so they don’t waste your time, and one who can be honest with you. Allow this friend into your moving program as the overseer. Treat them like you would treat your supervisor and they will keep you on your toes, ensuring your move is executed as planned.

  1. Break your duties into little steps

When are you doing your packing? When it comes to packing of kitchenware, preparation of the bedroom, labeling of cartons, it is easier to work on it in small bits. This way, you end up doing a lot without noticing. Whenever you accomplish a task, celebrate yourself and move on to the next; there is always joy in achieving even small success. Focus on the small achievements and let them encourage you to do much more

Procrastination is expensive; it might lead to a canceled contract with your moving company or being charged extra money due to delays. A professional moving company will help you plan your move and therefore keep you on toes.
