Procrastination happens to us all. In this recent Forbes Business Council article, 14 Effective Mental Hacks For Avoiding Procrastination, CultureWorx’ CEO, Dr. Donte Vaughn, who is also a member of the Forbes Business Council, shares his best mental hacks for staying on top of tasks that need to get done.
“Rate the importance of every task on a prioritization scale based upon criticality and time sensitivity. The most critical and time-sensitive items take priority. You would be surprised how often we procrastinate in response to feeling overwhelmed by what we think “must get done.” Remember: Not every emergency requires your urgency, and things that require urgency are not always an emergency!”
Productivity tips from other council members included leveraging an accountability partner and daily planner, as well as logging out of social media to break the automatic cycle of checking in on your platforms. Doing the most difficult task first was a common thread suggested by the contributors.
Dr. Vaughn joined the Forbes Business Council recently, bringing his expertise in organizational leadership, workforce management, and company culture to the invitation-only community.
