In one way or another, you may feel that you are extremely uninterested to perform a task. Laziness, or being apathetic, and not being able to complete a task denote failure and inadequacy.
It can seriously affect your productivity and disposition as a worker especially if the attitude becomes chronic.
Recognize the things that prevents you
Each time you feel less motivated reexamine the situation you are in and determine what gives you difficulty in dealing with it. Identify which factor of a particular task you think is giving you a difficulty.
By seeing through matters bit by bit, you will notice that the difficult part is just a small piece of the entire part.
Set a realistic goal
It is essential that you set goals which are achievable but are not overly challenging or too easy, and have it written down on a goal setting worksheet to work as your constant reminder. An extremely challenging goal can drain your whole energy just by the thought of it.
On the other hand, you can quickly make excuses procrastinate if you will create a goal which is extremely comfortable and painless. Otherwise, you can just simply say that you have already accomplished it before.
For a more realistic approach, formulate your long term goal and develop short term objectives to achieve them. Also make it a habit to reward yourself for a job well done.
In most cases, people get stuck with failures from the past. Having such experience can give you a false belief that you will be unable to succeed. But the real truth is you will not certainly be able to achieve what you want if you dwell on just a single failure and refuse to do something and take courage to try again.
Take control of the events in your life, not the other way around.
Be courageous, make a start
By seeing a difficult task at hand, you may perceive that it’s overly complicated to be done. However, keep in mind that complaining will not change the matter. Furthermore, delaying it will only worsen the outcome.
Have the courage to begin a task and keep going. Approach a task bit by bit and in no time you will reach completion.
Ask for help
Most individuals are reluctant to seek help because of fear of being put down or to avoid repeating the same experience of being refused or insulted. Be aware that humans are social beings and each one exists to help one another.
However, choose wisely whom you will ask for help. Also be open to the idea of returning the favor in the future when the need will arise.
Being indifferent to perform a task can be influenced by several factors. These include the notion that the task is too complex to be handled. Or you consider that it should be worked on by a group and not just by you only. Whatever your intention is, always be aware that such attitude produces no positive outcome. Furthermore, you can benefit much if you learn to develop effective ways to overcome it.
