Clears up my mind and know exactly what to do by making a to do list.
I use Ticktick and Quire. Making choices, deciding which option to go with, or deciding whether do or not something, consumes your willpower.
Our brain is designed to be as efficient with our willpower as possible, in order to conserve energy, I will break down my enormous projects into smaller tasks.
When encountered an ginormous task, the brain will immediately pop up a message telling me, "nope this task is way too big to handle, skip it".
But when I break it down and focus on small tasks at a time. The brain will normalize the situation and function efficiently, thus, increasing more willpower to do the next task.
What are some of your tips to avoid procrastinating during work?
