EPISODE 259 People procrastinate every day. Why do we do it? The hours you spend procrastinating each week can equal up to an entire work day! Shocker though, it’s not all bad. A lot has changed over the years and Dr. Bray is here to give you the brain science behind it.

 

STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
Research has found that if you procrastinate you tend to be more creative in the work that you’re doing. While you’re delaying the work your brain is finding new ideas and solutions which in turn provide better, more innovative ideas.

Procrastination has significantly increased in the past 5 years due to the current work environment. Your brain capacity can only do so much in one day. When you reach that max your mind wanders, you find ways to put off work and it is difficult to focus.

Procrastination Triggers
Something is…

  1. boring.
  2. frustrating.
  3. difficult.
  4. ambiguous.
  5. unstructured.
  6. unenjoyable.
  7. lacking in personal meaning.

These 7 triggers cause the logical part of your brain to surrender. At times we need to resist the showdown between the logical and emotional parts of our brain and planning better will help.

How can you manage your triggers?

  • Think differently about the project.
  • Focus intensely for a certain period of time with a reward at the end.
  • Working on one aspect of a project at a time can help you focus also.
  • Disconnect from your distractions.
