How To Beat Procrastination

What are the different ways we procrastinate?
When do you procrastinate the most?
How has being home fed into your procrastination?

Let’s beat procrastination:

  • First and foremost: Have a separate space from where you relax to where you do your work
    • It will be easy to procrastinate doing work if you are trying to do work in a place you usually relax in- check out the link above to see how to create a workspace at home
  • Eat That Frog!
    • “Eat that frog” means to tackle the worst thing you have to do everyday (your “frog”) first because you are more likely to procrastinate.
  • Pomodoro Technique
    • Choose a task you need to get done
    • Set a timer on your phone for 25 minutes and put your phone on the other side of the room and remove distractions (like TV)
    • Do the task until the timer goes off- then take a 5 minute break
    • For every 4th pomodoro (when the timer goes off) take a longer break- 25-30 minutes
