Day 63: Procrastination

Procrastination, we all have heard of it and a lot of us are plagued by it.
I definitely am.
So, where there is a problem, we must find a solution.
And for this issue there are many solutions.
Now the key is to make it fun.
Here we go.
I started doing research (that's where everything begins)
On Google I typed in Procrastination.
Procrastination is the action of delaying or postponing something.
You see that in the explanation is the word "action" used.
So even when you choose NOT to do something, you decide to take action not to do it.
Either way you are taking action.
So I rather take action on the "right" things that will get me closer to my goal than to take action doing nothing productive.
Because in life, in order to grow and learn, you gotta take action.
Now a few helpful tips to make taking action fun, I will share with you.

1) Get a Datexx The Miracle Cube Timer (on Amazon $18.-)
2) or get a 60 min sandglass (pick your fav color, mine is hot pink) (Amazon)
3) or of course just use your phone/kitchen/cooking timer

Now just get ready at your desk/on the couch/in bed and make sure you got some water and you already went to the bathroom.
Set the timer for 5/15/25/45/60 min. depending on the task or even for your meditation.

Like this you just go down your priority list.
Make sure you do the one task you dislike the most, first.
It's kind of like "eating a frog" (get it over quick).

You also call this The Pomodoro Technique.
This is a Time Management method.
Google it!
