Do you procrastinate? Here’s how you can change
If you’re a serial procrastinator you’ll never get anywhere in your job unless you change your behavior. To do this you must begin at the first start of the day. When your alarm goes off you need to get up and seize the day. By allowing yourself to stay in bed, you’re procrastinating with the very first decision you can make in the day. It might seem small to you, but it counts. By continually hitting the snooze button you’re falling further and further behind until you are no longer able to complete all the necessary tasks for the morning.
But if you had extra time on your hands, you could get in some light exercise. This helps circulate blood through the rest of your body, including your brain, so you’re ready to take on the day. It might be difficult to start with, but eventually you’ll be on the right track and well on your way to being successful – mentally and physically.
Does being a fast decision maker always make someone a good leader?
Sometimes, it is necessary to make snap decisions. While there are times to mull things over and to consider all options, there are other times where a quick decision is required. A leader must be able to make these snap decisions to avoid missing out on an opportunity. Waiting a few more minutes or hours can be the difference between a successful deal and a lost opportunity. Good leaders and managers must be able to make fast decisions when necessary.
How can you encourage your team to procrastinate less?
There are different ways to encourage a team. Perhaps reward them after the task has been completed. That way they’ll want to finish it faster. Try motivating them as well and make sure they know they are appreciated. A team leader who can do this will have a productive and successful team.
