Constantly checking email and other "information flows". It's my way of procrastinating I think. I've managed to eliminate distractions such as Twitter or Reddit from my day-to-day, but the constant checking of my email is a real problem.

Sometimes I find myself procrastinating and having not enough motivation and energy to do what I do. In times like these, I take a break, review my long-term goals and daily activities and make sure that at least half of the things that I do daily bring me closer to my goals, step by step. After these planning and self-reflection sessions, I feel much more energized and motivated.
