7 great ways to follow through on a task to completion

  1. 1. 7 Great Ways to Follow-through On a Task to Completion Can you remember what starting a big project and quitting half-way through feels like? The thing is, you won't achieve anything if you quit, so you will have to find ways to start a big project and continue to completion. Here are 7 great ways to follow through on a project once you start: 1. Chunk it down One of the most important ways to handle your workload and stick with a project to completion, without feeling overwhelm, is to chunk down the project into smaller, more manageable tasks. For example, you could work at the project at 30 minute intervals, you could research for 45 minutes at a time, perhaps you could chunk your book reading to 5 pages a day, or you might want to consider studying one CD a day from a home study course. Find what works best for you. This way you will work through your workload at a much faster pace while enjoying working through it. 2. Look at the project from another angle What would you do if you kept doing the same thing over and over again? You would get the same results, wouldn't you? Apply the same principle when you are stuck. Instead of doing the same thing and not getting anywhere, rather than jumping up in frustration and quitting, change your strategy. Take a 5 minute break, then come back and look at your project from a different angle. Once you're calm, go back to the project you were working on, and see it from a different, more relaxed perspective. You might see something you previously missed. 3. Avoid multitasking To some, multi-tasking can be counterproductive. It brings about a sense of confusion and anxiety, a lack of focus and concentrated effort. As you're working on one project your mind may go astray and concentrate on another project. Best way around this is to start a project, finish it and then move on. This way you plough all your energy, focus and concentration into one project and you will get it done much quicker and the quality may even be better. 4. Remove distractions
  2. 2. Before you settle down to work on your project, as best as possible eliminate any possible distractions; close your door, have a glass of water or coffee, ask not to be disturbed, ask to hold phone calls. You'll be pleasantly surprised how much you can really accomplish. 5. Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today Yes, I know you've heard it before, but the thing is it does make a lot of sense. When you put off laborious, or unpleasant tasks they will be harder to tackle the next day or in the future. Do your best not to delay any tasks, waiting for the perfect mood or time to tackle the tasks for that perfect time may never come. Make it your policy to do it as and when you get it. 6. Take regular breaks By having a 5 minute break every 30 minutes or so, you will re-energise your body and mind. Walk around, stretch, go to the water counter and drink a cup of water. This short break works wonders. If you don't take a break you will tire yourself to the point where you won't be able to think straight. This could lead to anxiety and frustration. 7. Keep your workspace organised By keeping your desk or workspace tidy and free of any clutter, you will find that you can focus and concentrate on the task at hand and you will be far more productive. Follow these tips and you should easily stick to any project you start to completion. Not only that, they are effective for you to take action to even start any project.
