Breaking Patterns of Procrastination
Date & Time
Putting things off to the last minute? Having a hard time starting a project? Or is it hard to finish and actually put a close to something you are working on? This workshop is here to help you procrastinate less and get more done. Contrary to what most people think, procrastination is not fundamentally a time management problem, which is why just trying to manage your schedule better is limited in effectiveness in changing this pattern of behaviour.
In this workshop you will learn:
- about the factors that drive and maintain procrastination
- about the psychology of avoidance
- a variety of effective, concrete strategies to help you put a major dent in procrastination patterns.
