  3. Redefine deadlines to turn them into friends Try to redefine it and have a different perspective. View each deadline as a huge benefit to your current project. Without deadlines you would be lost with no structure and plan. 1 unmess your life today with unmess app
  4. Create accountability to add some drama We should not stress ourselves by deadlines but one good way to break the habit of procrastination is creating accountability and… the fear of loosing it if we fail. Find someone to hold you accountable. #2 unmess your life today with unmess app
  5. Break down bigger projects into digestible chunks It turns out we very often procrastinate when we perceive the task as complex, huge and at times overwhelming. That is why it is best to break down such tasks into manageable smaller sub-tasks. #3 unmess your life today with unmess app
  6. Work on each project day by day to go with the flow Once you broke down bigger projects into digestible chunks, it’s best to schedule them and work on them on a daily basis. #4 unmess your life today with unmess app
  7. Trick your mind by changing the pattern We very often form a procrastination habit of indulging in other activity instead of doing what we are supposed to do. We think, “just 10 more minutes of reading the news or browsing social media and I will start…”. Try the opposite. Just 10 minutes of DOING WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO and then reading the news or browsing social media. #5 unmess your life today with unmess app
