As an expert psychologist and life coach, I often counsel individuals who are struggling with feeling fulfilled in life. Below is some life coaching advice we can all consider to help us improve our overall outlook. Perfection is one of the culprits that leads to procrastination.
Stop putting things off
Procrastination often occurs when you have a task you do not want to complete and/or you are feeling overwhelmed. Procrastinating is not only unhealthy, but it causes more stress. When facing an overwhelming task, take a few minutes to break it down into mini tasks. In life coaching, we often talk about tackling small steps at a time. For example, if a task such as cleaning your entire home seems overwhelming then don’t clean it all at once. Break it down into mini tasks to make it more manageable. Perhaps work on the kitchen on Monday. Vacuum on Tuesday. Clean the bathrooms on Wednesday, etc. Mini tasks are much easier to tackle than one big task that seems large and overwhelming.
Accept that you will never be perfect
Perfection is one of the culprits that leads to procrastination. If you feel like you need to complete a task perfectly, you may never want to start it in the first place. No one is perfect. Instead of trying to be perfect, a good life coach will encourage you to simply strive for excellence.
