Task initiation is one of the executive functions that help you get started on tasks. It also includes overcoming procrastination and starting tasks that you don’t want to do. Challenges with task initiation can lead to work being completed late (or not at all), frustration, and feeling overwhelmed. Improving your task initiation can help you reduce these feelings and regain control of your work and home tasks.

Executive functions are a set of skills that allow us to direct our focus to plan, start, remember, and continue tasks: inhibition, cognitive flexibility and working memory.

This video takes a practical approach to boost your task initiation, demonstrating that these skills are critical to being effective and succeeding both at work and at home.
