We’re going to stop procrastinating

At least, we’re going to stop writing about procrastinating

We decided we had said enough after Joy heard a caller on a radio talk show ask for suggestions to help her stop procrastinating.

Within a few minutes, several people had responded with books for the woman to read. Another caller told her to buy a copy of the April issue of Real Simple magazine, which includes an article titled “This Is Your Brain on Procrastination.”

We bought the magazine, of course. We couldn’t resist finding out about our brains on procrastination. In Real Simple, Dr. Timothy Pychyl, author of The Procrastinator’s Digest: A Concise Guide to Solving the Procrastination Puzzle, explains that our brains have two parts. The first part is the automatic limbic system, which tells you to pull your hand away from a flame.  Also, sometimes when it tells you to avoid what feels bad, you procrastinate.

The other part of the brain is the prefrontal cortex, the newer and weaker portion of the brain. It helps you integrate information and make decisions. “There’s nothing automatic about its function,” Real Simple concludes. “You must kick it into gear.”

The magazine also lists seven suggestions for stopping procrastination. The first suggestion is: “Do the worst thing first….Attack the hardest task when your energy is fresh.”

That’s exactly what we suggested in a recent blog post.

We’ve decided to take our own advice. We’re going to stop writing and talking about procrastination. Writing and talking are easy.

We’re going to do the hardest task. We’re going to kick our prefrontal cortexes into gear and stop procrastinating.
