Section 1: Course introduction

Procrastination is a habit – a deeply ingrained pattern of behavior. That means that you won’t just break it overnight. Habits only stop being habits when you have persistentlystopped practising them, so use as many approaches as possible to maximize your chances of beating them. Some tips will work better for some people than for others, and for some tasks than others. And, sometimes, you may simply need to try a fresh approach to beat the “procrastination peril”!

Section 2: Different times and reasons we procrastinate
Before sitting down to do a task
Section 3: Why do you procrastinate?

Brain releases dopamines when you have little wins. So instead of looking at the task as one big negative, find little things in the task that can be accomplished and do them. This will make you feel better about the bigger task and make it seem as not so bad, and will give you momentum.

Are you a dreamer and not a doer?
Is perfectionism holding you back and making you not start?
Do you work better under pressure?
Fear of criticism?
A.D.D or disorganization?
