Procrastination can strike virtually anyone. On top of that, it can take several forms. It may make you avoid work entirely, tell yourself you can’t work until you don’t get perfect conditions or you have so much to do that it overwhelms you. In such a situation, putting things off can seem satisfying but trust me, it’s temporary. What you are actually doing is self-sabotaging yourself. Don’t worry, we all have days like these. But you can clear the mess up with some productivity hacks.
I agree, productivity hacks can’t give you superpowers but they sure give the motivation that you need to get going. So, here we begin with 10 productivity hacks to crush your procrastination starting today:
1. Respect the time you have
‘Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones
we have been waiting for. We are the change that we seek,’- Barack Obama
Not many of us are good at valuing our time. Once you start believing that you have very limited time, you will use it wisely too.
2. Get rid of online temptations
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp and other forms of social media can make time fly like an arrow. To be honest, the internet is tempting and it can keep you from your goals of the day. So do yourself a favor and set aside all the temptations, even your phone. Log out of your emails, use apps to block web browsing and put your phone on silence.
3. Phrase the priority
When you have lots of things on your to-do list, you often end up wishing there were more hours in the day. This happens when there are unnecessary items on your list. Take a piece of paper and write everything down that you need to do in the day in the right order. Put the hardest task at the top. Get rid of the pointless tasks from your list, clear your schedule and focus on stuff that really matters.
