Instantly Break Down Procrastination (Simple)

This simple hack helps you break the first barrier on a task that you have been procrastinating for too long.

Are you unsatisfied with your current output and lack of time? You need Zero to Done, my system for Getting Things done, consistently.

If you’ve been procrastinating at a task that’s been on your to-do list for a while, write down the first thing that you need to do to move forward on that task.

And make that first task as small as possible.

For example, if you need to go shopping, just write down "get up and pick spare shopping bags".

Or if you need to write an article, write down "choose the title" or "write outline".

Then, take that first action.

Once you get the ball rolling, it‘s much easier to keep working on the task ;)
