No more fretting about procrastination

Is it really information overload that is causing so many of us to feel overwhelmed? It could just be the way the human brain is wired – our consciousness has evolved to actually encourage us to not get things done that we feel resistant to. That’s what Si Conroy writes about in his post on My Neuro Coach. His theory is that we have a natural resistance to difficult or unpleasant things, hence we procrastinate, put things off that are new or strange, or take on too much and then feel overwhelmed.

Sound familiar? Well, at least it may be some consolation that it’s just your conscious brain working on auto pilot! But we still need ways to deal with this, and that’s exactly what our best practices in time management checklist gives you.

Reminder: Realize that you even after you try a number of these tips, your emotional resistance may cause you to slip back into your old habits, but don’t get discouraged. If you understand why it’s happening, it’s so much easier to get back on track forming good time management habits that will stay with you for a lifetime!
