Procrastination tools (or also called anti procrastination tools) help you to avoid this negative phenomenon and different problems related to procrastination in business. There are different methods and ways (procrastination tools) to struggle against delaying and postponing your tasks until it appears completely impossible to meet their target dates. To defeat procrastination in business you should find a root of the problem in your specific case. Probably procrastination in the workplace happens owing to lack of motivation, lack of necessary skills or just because of unfeasible requirements. You should accurately study this problem before choosing procrastination tools. Sometimes procrastination activities are not something that harms working process, but they may even increase productivity – this refers to interesting theory of structured procrastination. There are special software products that can be considered as anti procrastination tools – task and time management tools that allow detecting and overcoming procrastination in the workplace. Let's consider all these things in the following paragraph.

When the fact of procrastination in business is detected and recognized – first of all, preventative actions should be taken – for example you need to identify and formulate what are procrastination activities which lead to time-wasting. Then you can compose and share among your staff special procrastination worksheets – "not to-do lists" of actions that should be avoided because they might cause procrastination in the workplace. Such procrastination worksheets should include procrastination activities that waste productive time and distract attention from the main working process. According to procrastination statistics – the main procrastination activities are communicating with friends through web-messengers, chats and social web-sites, multitasking and regular postponing hard tasks.
Procrastination tools
But as it was mentioned before there is one extraordinary procrastination tool – theory of structured procrastination (invented by John Perry) that says that procrastination in business is not a way of doing completely nothing, but a way of doing some still useful things instead of doing something more important. Structured procrastination is about putting off the seemingly important things from the top of your task list as a way to rather work on the less important tasks from the middle of your task list. To learn more about interesting strategy of structured procrastination you may visit its special web-site.
