Procrastination is an active process – you choose to do something else instead of the task that you know you should be doing. People often think that they have enough time, but in reality it’s a lie to ourselves. If we procrastinate over a long period of time, then we can become demotivated and disillusioned with our work. Consequently, we become life losers. I used to be a really big procrastinator. It was always a big problem in the school, when i was leaving my homework’s and projects at the last moment and then i was getting bad marks. When i started working at the company i was always ,, disappointing,, my boss until i was fired. But thanks for internet, where i found many tips and programs, after which i started being more productive in my life and i want to share with the strategies that i used:

  1. ⁠Forgive yourself for procrastinating in the past.
  2. ⁠Focus on doing, not avoiding. Write down the tasks that you need to complete, and specify a time for doing them.
  3. ⁠Promise yourself a reward.
  4. ⁠Turn off your email and social media, and avoid sitting anywhere near a television while you work! And there is also a website that is really amazing BankOfProductivity.com
