Tip: Break tasks you procrastinate into smaller, low-energy ones. It helps.
We procrastinate if a task is...
- Ambiguous / unstructured
- Lacks personal meaning
- Lacks reward (e.g isn't fun)
To learn more about how to tackle procrastination, I recommend reading Solving the Procrastination Puzzle: A Concise Guide to Strategies for Change by Timothy Pychyl.
