15 Best Ways To Overcome Laziness


Laziness hinders us from accomplishing meaningful and useful things. It is the enemy of productivity. With laziness present, there is no way that one can be productive, and there is no way that he/she can go along with even the day-to-day activities, at the least, if not being productive. So how to overcome it? Here is a list that I found useful.

1. Procrastination is most of the times the number one reason for being lazy. Cast away procrastination and you should be on the right track.
2. Set a deadline to get started; this is often more important than setting a deadline to get things completed.
3. Treat yourself nicely when you get things done, no matter how small the achievement can be.
4. Break things up into small easy-to-do tasks. This way you don’t get puzzled and sit thinking how to do it.
5. Exercise and keep fit. This will give you enough refreshment to do things without laziness. You will also feel motivated and satisfied from the inner side.
6. Be sure about what to do next, if not you will have to be idle.
7. Closely follow your colleagues or family members who are busy and active, learn from them.
8. Think about what you will miss by sitting idly. Calculate the loss and take the responsibility.
9. Take productive breaks. Chat with colleagues or take a refreshing walk.
10. Plan a day ahead. Don’t go to the working table without knowing what to do that day.
11. Always engage yourself in something; never let your mind or body to be idle.
12. Watch your progress closely and account for un-productive days.
13. Be your own boss. Command yourself, set goals, accomplish tasks and appreciate yourself.
14. Find out what is holding you back from actually “doing” things. Fix it as soon as possible.
15. Don’t always follow a routine. This will cause boredom. Try to do something different just for a change.
