  • I make a list of three things that absolutely have to happen for me to consider the day "done".
  • I use a timer. I don't feel like cleaning? I set a timer for 10 minutes and enlist my kid; we race to see who can get the most done. Time to sit down and work through my bootcamp course? I use a Pomodoro app.
  • I moved all apps off of the homescreen of my phone AND I deleted all social media apps. I even permanently deleted the account I use on my biggest offender (Instagram). I procrastinate less when my preferred distractions are out of sight.
