How to Make Tasks More Pleasant And Stop Procrastinating

We tend to avoid doing things we find unpleasant or painful.  By changing your mindset, you can make these "unpleasant" tasks a little bit easier, and even fun! 

Adapt The Task

Before you get started, take a minute to think about your strengths and weaknesses relevant to the task at hand.

Here's an example.

A friend asks you to run alongside them on the treadmill at the gym. 

However, cardio isn't exactly your thing, so you tend to avoid it. 

Here's where adapting the task comes in. 

There are several other machines at the gym that may be more up your alley. 

By switching up the workout, you can make the experience fun. 

Make it Pleasant

Wouldn't it be nice if you could make "chores" more fun? Oh wait... you can!

All you have to do is ask yourself this one question.

"What can I do before, during, or after the task to make it fun?"

Take your time; there is no right or wrong answer.

If it's a task that requires little concentration like cooking or cleaning, you can play your favorite song or audiobook in the background. 

On the other hand, if this task requires a high level of concentration, reward yourself after every milestone. 

The One Minute Struggle

Unfamiliar with the “One Minute Struggle?”

No worries, here is a quick overview.

Have you ever been in a situation, you just can't get past? Maybe you can't figure out that puzzle, or set up that computer software. Either way, you feel lost.

Instead of sitting there for hours on end, you have a few choices:

1) Get some help.

2) Ask yourself what else might work.

3) Come back to the problem later with a new set of eyes.
