How to stop procrastination Now

"He was forever taken aback by [New York's] pervasive atmosphere of purposefulness the tight focus of its drivers, the brisk intensity of its pedestrians" (Anne Tyler).

The number one reason that people procrastinate and loose time is that they loose focus and become overwhelmed.
They take their senses and focus off their Goal and move to a larger,more sensory acute picture of something else. Something else can be anything that creates a type of Hypnosis over their attention and becomes bigger than the original Goal.

Park your outcome at the forefront of your mind until you get it
If we were to ask people about their submodalities while they are wanting help with focus we will note that the Goal is further away and in some way obscured from attainment (reach/view/sound) thus depleting the emotion and intensity from it being achievable.

Decide to stay Focused
Getting distracted is rarely logical and quite often emotional, a feeling that is less then desirable seems to somehow wash ones earlier best intentions away. 
It is usually not until much later that one realizes they have been distracted and by then they have no idea where to begin again ... and so they don't. 

Make it compelling Motivate yourself 
And yet strangely from time to time a reminder says "I must" do _____________ pops up and "Must" being a model operator of necessity is hardly compelling and especially compared to "I really want to" ___________

Just Imagine how it will be when you have it
One of the best ways to change this is to create a trance of having the end result, a trance after all is just a suggestion that does not need to ponder what if at every avenue.

A light trance after all can be compared to a vivid day dream, like a mini break, an infusion of happiness a cocktail of delight  even a moment of paradise.

Create a Plan and Prioritize 
People rarely plan to fail but by not planning and prioritizing their time and commitments often do. 
Emotions  are helpful in  sensory awareness and calibration but also are way more useful when managed, think of emotions like soda bubbles nice if you have a few in your soda but too many and it fizzes over leaving a sticky mess over  absolutely everything when you least expect it and nothing sweet or cold to drink. 

Check your emotions at the Door
If a person where to respond emotionally more often than not it can be difficult to predict any consistency in purposeful productivity, and yet easy to predict an emotional eruption sooner or later.

Manage yourself and begin to notice if and when your emotions are getting the best of you. commit to taking control of your own state of mind and well being.

NLP has numerous ways to help you with this, just pick one.
Let me know how you get on.

To your success
