re: Which techniques do u use to avoid procrastinating? VIEW POST


For me it's an ever continuing battle with ups and downs, but one of the things I've done since ages is allowing myself to give in every once in a while. Just maybe once every couple of weeks I spend an afternoon down the youtube clickhole or scrolling tweets and that gets it out of my system, and I feel more relaxed and less distracted when I decide to focus again.

From day to day, I try and do the opposite and get more accustomed to boredom again. So no phone in sight, just a few tabs open and forget about the existence of everything distracting. This way even the more boring tasks seem interesting.

Having lists with what I want to accomplish also helps a lot. I use to doist and a simplified 'getting things done' methodology.

When I really need to force myself to focus, 'pomodoro' like timers, although that sometimes more feels like I'm withholding myself something than actually re-learning how to focus properly.
