In ons dagelijks leven jongleren we met ons werk, ons gezin, onze ouders die verzorging nodig hebben, de vele huishoudklusjes, ….
We zijn continu onderweg, doen boodschappen en staan klaar voor iedereen…

In het oog van deze storm zijn we ervan overtuigd dat geen enkele van deze verplichtingen zo dringend is, dat ze onmiddellijk moet gebeuren. Al die taken en activiteiten kunnen nog wel even wachten.
Met andere woorden: het korte termijn voordeel van uitstellen is een gevoel van controle en rust. We zeggen dat we die ene taak wel morgen zullen doen, omdat we NU eigenlijk recht hebben op een korte pauze.

Neem dan ook die pauze. Er is niets mis mee om dat boek te lezen, wat naar je favoriete muziek te luisteren, …  Wees er alleen van bewust dat de feel-good voordelen van uitstellen snel kunnen omslaan in paniek.

Hieronder 11 algemene oorzaken van uitstelgedrag en de dingen die je eraan kan doen

Angst voor grote en ingewikkelde taken.
Verdeel die grote taak in kleinere stukjes.
Begin met een gemakkelijk stukje en je zal zien dat de andere stappen vanzelf volgen.

Angst voor imperfectie
Accepteer dat perfectie niet altijd bereikbaar is en zelfs niet altijd noodzakelijk.
Je bent een mens en geen robot. Gebruik de 80/20 regel wanneer het mogelijk is.


Bepaal je criteria waardoor jij besluiten maakt. Leg dan een deadline vast voor je uiteindelijke besluit. Schakel desnoods een vriend in die als je geweten kan optreden.

Maak een onderscheid tussen je verplichtingen en je opties, je mogelijkheden.
Waar ben je verantwoordelijk voor ? Maak een lijstje op en geef aan waar je prioriteiten liggen.

Kleine saaie taken zijn erg vervelend om te doen. Zij staan eerste in rij om uitgesteld te worden. Probeer deze taken zoveel mogelijk te automatiseren.

Gebrek aan focus
Minimaliseer alles wat je afleidt. Kijk email, Twitter en dergelijk maar twee keer per na in plaats van elke 5 minuten. Zoek een rustige plaats om te werken.

Slecht organiseren.
Hou je werkplek ordelijk. Geef alles een vaste plaats. Als alles een rommeltje is, dan is opruimen een ideaal uitstel-excuus.

Herinner jezelf aan de gevolgen van het uitstellen.
Weersta aan de drang om een “couch potato” te zijn.
Probeer kleine taakjes mooi af te werken (zie ook mijn eerste puntje) zodat je een gevoel van afronding en voltooiïng krijgt.

Te weinig energie.
Zorg voor een regelmatige slaap routine. (lees hier ook meer over slapen).
Eet gezond
Neem regematig beweging
En erg belangrijk : sla het ontbijt nooit over!

Planning voor de volgende dag.
Maak aan het einde van je (werk)dag een lijstje met je taken voor de volgende dag. Op deze manier kan je je dag starten met taken in plaats van piekeren wat er gedaan moet worden.
( Dit is 1 van mijn favorieten – ik werk veel thuis, op mijn eentje. Internet is voor mij een grote bron van afleiding en vertraging. Door dit lijstje bij te houden, werk ik veel productiever.)

Het dipje in de namiddag
Voor je aan de lunch begint, maak je het beste ook een to-do lijste voor je taken in de namiddag. Op deze manier kan je snel met deze taken beginnen.
Vermijd ook zwaar eten tijdens de lunch. Onderzoek heeft uitgewezen dat we minder alert en gefocused werken na zwaar tafelen.


Probeer voor jezelf eens te analyseren waarom je procrastineert.
Schrijf je bevindingen desnoods op.
Op deze manier kan je begrijpen waarom of wanneer je dingen uitstelt. Je kan je dan focussen op de oplossingen en zo groeien tot iemand die productiever werkt.

Heb jij bovenstaande tips al toegepast ? Heb je al eens deze analyse voor jezelf gedaan ?
Wat waren jou bevindingen ?
