还记得之前要做的两项改变吗? 

Stop Hating Monday

Stop Living Out of Your Inbox

By the End of This Year: Crush Procrastination
年底前:让拖延症去死吧!

Putting off a few small tasks until tomorrow seems OK—until tomorrow turns into next week, and next week turns into next month. And suddenly, you have a lot more stress, tighter deadlines, and longer days at the office.
把一点儿小事儿拖到明天,似乎无伤大雅。但明天变成了下礼拜,下礼拜又变成了下个月。突然之间,你发现你有好多事儿没做,各种东西要交,于是压力山大地在办公室里加班加点。

When you've waited until the last minute to do something, there’s no time to go the extra mile; usually, you just have to settle for whatever you can churn out at the last minute. Procrastination keeps your work ordinary, at best.
当你等到最后一分钟再去做事的时候,你就没时间去做得更好了。通常情况下呢,你也就只能将就着自己在最后一分钟前赶出来的活了。最好的情况下,拖延症也会让你的工作趋于平庸。

Now, tackling a challenge like this won’t take just a day or a week. But with these three steps to get you started, you can certainly help turn your procrastination around by the end of the year.
拖延症不是一两天或是一两个礼拜就能搞定的。从以下三步开始,你就可以在今年年底前改善自己的拖延症。

1. Schedule Your Priorities
1. 安排好你要做的事儿

When you tell yourself, “I’ll do this tomorrow,” actually block off some time in your calendar the next day to work on it. Scheduling helps give you both the structure and the dedicated time you need to actually make significant progress.

2. Practice Focusing
2. 专注力练习

Try this: Pick a task you’ve been putting off, and work on it for 20 minutes without looking up. Take a short, five-minute break, then do it again. This will help you form new habits that will, over time, allow you to be (and feel) more productive.


3. Phone a Friend
3. 打电话让朋友来督促

Tempted to procrastinate? Ask a friend or colleague to hold you accountable. Give this person the details on what you want to accomplish, and the deadline that goes along with it. Then, ask him or her to check in with you for daily updates on your progress. You’ll be much more motivated when you know someone’s keeping tabs on your work.
又打算拖延?找一个朋友或同事来帮你吧。把你这项工作需要完成什么、什么时候交等细节告诉你这位朋友。然后让他每天来检查你的进展。当自己的工作有了别人的监督,你会更有动力来完成的。

Sure, you’ll have plenty of resolutions in just a couple months. But why wait? Start practicing now—while there’s less pressure and no one’s looking. Think about how great you’ll feel waking up in 2014 knowing you’ve mastered these three simple ideals. And everyone else? They’ll be amazed at how much progress you’ve made so quickly in the new year!
这样,你在未来的几个月里,会做完各种事儿。还等什么,趁现在还没多少压力,也没人在催,就开始练习吧!想想,如果自己在2014年醒来时,已经精通上述三个概念了,那会有多爽。至于其他人嘛,让他们惊讶于你这么快就在新年有如此多的进步吧!
