Stop procrastination checklist:

  • Create written/visible plan of actions to avoid distractactions, and communicate this plan to employees.

The best instrument is provident planning of working activities to outline everything that should be done and to get a clear picture. Ensure that this plan of work is optimized, understandable and feasible.

  •  Promote individual work organization.

Being organized helps to defeat chaos and feeling of being overwhelmed. Arrange and promote reasonable disciplineand self-organization – this should be agreed and accepted by employees.

  • Ensure that all tasks are clearly stated, fair and feasible.

The first way of avoiding procrastination is assigning feasible, clearly formulated and fair tasks to performers. Make sure that it is really possible to accomplish this amount of work with receiving stated outputs and before a given due date.

  • Be open for communicating and discussing anxiety with your employees.

Declare that if some employees think that they cannot meet target dates of some tasks because of certain reasons and they cannot do anything around this – they freely can ask for your help and advice. Declare that it is better to prevent procrastination beforehand, than to face its consequences.

  • Take care of interruptions and distractions.

You should ensure calm environment for those who are working at important tasks. You cannot expect good working results from people who are regularly distracted from their main work. Make project and environment as pleasant as possible.
