How to overcome workplace procrastination, find the reason and suit the remedy to the case
4hw.com.cn: procrastination. We all know that we can delay as long as we encounter things. Workplace procrastination has a lot to do at work, but we always can't get up and work hard. We don't finish things in a hurry until we are about to get off work. How to overcome workplace procrastination? Let's have a look.
Every time there is a new task, Xiaomei feels that she has plenty of time and doesn't deal with it. After a while, she began to worry and say 'I can't wait any longer', but she opened her microblog or turned around to chat. Until the deadline was approaching, she felt burning and worked hard. Finally finished, but the quality is not high. Xiaomei is also exhausted. She vowed to start early in the future, but she will do it again next time.
Xiaomei's state is a typical 'workplace procrastination'. According to a survey by a recruitment website, 86% of workplace people think they have procrastination performance, half of them 'won't do it until the last minute', 17% will delay for about a day, and 13% will 'never complete it until urged by the leader'.
This data is surprising. At present, even if many office workers have plenty of time, they will consciously or unconsciously look at microblogs and chat, and do not finish it in a hurry until they have to hand in the job, resulting in a decline in efficiency.
The causes of workplace procrastination are as follows:
1. Perfectionism: they are self demanding, think that the work results reflect their ability and value, and are afraid that the work is not in place and is considered mediocre, so they hope to make the plan perfect.
2. Lack of self-confidence: feel that their ability is not enough to complete the task, resulting in evasion.
3. Job burnout: tired of the work or the leader assigned the work, without motivation, they begin to procrastinate. Improving workplace procrastination can not only improve work efficiency and quality, but also enhance self-confidence and personal sense of achievement.
Therefore, first, to eliminate interference, it is best to open less chat tools, otherwise time will pass inadvertently.
Second, we should distinguish priorities. Successful people spend their time on the most important, not the most urgent, so they divide their work into four categories: urgent and important, important but not urgent, urgent but not important, not urgent and not important, and complete them in turn.
Third, we might as well establish a 'delay mutual aid alliance' with our colleagues to urge each other. If we can complete the task as planned within a week, we will have a dinner to celebrate.
Fourth, people with job burnout can talk to senior professionals or consultants to re plan their careers.
Fifth, managers should learn to delegate tasks, hand over the work that can be completed by others to their subordinates, track the progress regularly, and only do important tasks by themselves.
