The Secret to Overcoming Procrastination

IO9: The Secret to Overcoming Procrastination. “‘The best thing to do when we’re procrastinating is to identify whether it’s sadness, anger, or fear that’s really in our way,’ Bijou says. “And then, to move that energy out.

Figure out what the task is, and make a list of all of the simple tasks that make up the big, overwhelming task. Then start with just one.‘”
