From Deanna's Desk By Deanna Sweat, Extension Agent Prevent procrastination Procrastination is a problem for many people. A persistent effort be- comes necessary to overcome the atti- tude, since important projects are often put off, said Katey Walker, Kansas State University Research and Exten- sion family resources specialist. "People procrastinate for many rea- sons, such as lear of failure or even fear of success," Walker said. Spend some time thinking about if and why you procrastinate, and about the types of projects that you usually put off. Sug- gestions for coping with procrasl,ina- lion are the salami technique, the bal- ance-sheet method and new time man- agement habits. Salami technique: In its original state, salami is hard to handle and unappetizing. After the salami is cut into thin slices, it becomes manage- able and something to enjoy. Big projects should be sliced into small slices or instant tasks. Balance sheet method: On the left side of the paper, list all the reasons for procrastinating on a certain project. On the righL side, list all the benefits received with completion. Excuses are often feeble, Walker said, com- pared to a long list of benefits. Habit-change approach: work on a systematic approach to changing a habit. Procrastination is seldom re- lated to a single item, as if often be- comes an ingrained behavior pattern. It is important to take action to over- come procrastination and 3el realistic goals. When you put off work until l,omor- row, you put off profits until next week. The hardest task in life is to refuse to be tempted by false honors. The only way to get business IS to go after it and keep going after it.
