How Will a White Board Help You :

After you have decided the steps you need to take everyday, it's important to mention them on your Calendar/ Planning Boards to keep yourself accountable & start your day by taking action instead of wondering what you need to do & spend all day without actually doing something.
Key Points to Remember :
Procrastination prevents you from reaching your full potential—in your relationships, career, and beyond. It hinders teamwork, decreases self-esteem, and even leads to depression and job loss.
Non-procrastinators tend to have a strong sense of personal identity and higher levels of self-esteem. That means they are less concerned with what other people think of them.
Procrastinators, on the other hand, put a strong emphasis on external validation. In other words, they worry a lot about what other people will say. They find value in themselves from the approval of other people, and avoid doing something out of fear of criticism.
Your subconscious mind has established an underlying notion regarding something and the circumstances under which it is “safe” or not to act. There is always some kind of explanation for why you can’t. Whether it makes sense or not doesn’t matter; your mind accepts it. You never even consider challenging this conviction.
Some examples are “I need to organize my office in a completely silent setting first,” or “I need to have the proper gym equipment before I can properly begin my exercise program.”
- Make a habit of daily planning, focusing on tasks one-by-one, by level of importance, so you don’t have to constantly think about what to do next.
