Overcoming Procrastination

Procrastination is rampant in today's business world.

Sure, it is easy to blame others for your inability to get things done: demanding bosses, or coworkers who interrupt you for help. But be honest, how often is it your own fault? Are you simply putting off doing what will still be in your in-box tomorrow? Do you make statements such as: "I do not have time to do it," "It makes sense to do the smaller tasks first to get them out of the way," "Once I get more energy, I can really focus on this." If so, there is a strong possibility that you have fallen into the 'Procrastination Trap'.

Pushing important tasks and projects off until later can cause emotional anguish and keep you from accomplishing professional and personal goals. This workshop will provide you with techniques and strategies to overcome procrastination in your work and personal life.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

Identify what procrastination really is
* Describe the difference between procrastination and prioritization

Describe the reasons people tend to procrastinate
* Identify when lack of commitment plays a part
* Describe how fear can cause procrastination
* Identify when something is considered a low priority
* Describe the importance of having enough information
* Identify times when you are just not interested in doing something

Describe how to assign priorities effectively
* Identify criteria you can use to effectively prioritize tasks

Targeted Audience: Anyone interested in everyday tips about how to avoid procrastination.
*For Faculty/Staff only.*

Secrets to Self-Motivation

We can do anything we set our minds to. But sometimes it can feel like our brains are working against us
when it comes to achieving our goals. Plans to learn a new skill, to get in shape or to save money keep
getting pushed back in the hopes that the Future You will handle it “someday.”


Your attitude and beliefs about your likelihood of success can predict whether or not you actually succeed.
If you actively keep your internal motivation high, you can significantly increase the likelihood of achieving
your hopes, dreams, and visions of your future.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
• Define what self-motivation is
• Understand four factors that contribute to self-motivation
• Learn how to keep self-motivation going

Target Audience: This workshop is for anyone who needs a boost in achieving their dreams.

**For Faculty/Staff Only**
