If you're a procrastinator - don't put off reading this.

If you’re avoiding something on that to-do list – consider doing that first...

Piers Steel, author of “The Procrastination Equation,” says doing the worst thing first can be the most effective approach for a procrastinator. He says attacking the hardest task when our energy is fresh gives us the best chance of success. Just having that difficult task on the list can drain us of precious energy each time we think about it.

Another productive approach for procrastinators is to start your day over at 2 pm. It’s easy to feel defeated if the morning has slipped away without accomplishing much. Give yourself that second chance, every day. Just try not to fall into the trap of saving everything for the second start.
