Do You Procrastinate your Life Away?
Henrik in "The Positivity Blog" suggests telling yourself, "ok, only work for 2 minutes on this task today, then you can finish it another day". If 2 minutes does not get you started, then try 1 minute. The task should be done at a relaxed pace. Stay calm, relaxed and don't put any requirements into it. Make the start as easy as you can.
The success he gets with this method is this: He starts at a relaxed, non-stressed pace, and continues for the two minutes. The result is that he generally works past the two minutes and gets quite a bit more work accomplished.
When you approach a task with minimal effort, it ceases to appear big, hard, and insurmountable.

PS I am going to be using this method today, only I will be using the kitchen timer to time the 2 minutes. What are your thoughts on that? Do you procrastinate with everything or just a task or two now and then? What are some of the remedies you use to get moving?
