How to Stop Procrastinating Right Now
Break the cycle of procrastination with a simple productivity hack to overcome getting started.
Laziness begets laziness.
Why go to the gym tonight? After all, you haven’t gone in a week. Why take out the garbage when your whole apartment is a mess?
Good points. But it’s time to break the cycle with a simple productivity hack:
Set a 10-minute alarm.
Tell yourself you’ll only work on the dreaded task for a designated time period — and then you can stop.
The hard part is getting started. Just 10 minutes will get you motivated to keep going after the timer goes off.
Once you’re already involved, it’s less tempting to quit.
