Came across this article about my nemesis: Procrastination (https://medium.com/the-mission/how-to-stop-procrastinating-using-the-70-rule-f2f79c87c380) And heard a podcast from Jim Kwik about it as well (https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/10-how-to-stop-procrastinating/id1208024744?i=1000384414564&mt=2) If you haven't slipped and procrastinated in a long while, how have you kept yourself on the rails?

    First i don't take procastination as a bad thing. I take it like a signal to start doing something else besides working of "productivity based activities". A chance to relax...

    Then, to do things i try to split them on list task with break in the middle. You can't be constantly working, so is important to relax or add light things in the middle.

    Also, i try not to mix enviroments. I try to not work on my house because in there i rest. I also try to only study in the library. That way you take out distractions and focus on what you have to do.

      I've started to do my work in a cafe and my productivity has skyrocketed.
      I DO constantly work, so to break up the time - when my friends ask me out to a dinner or a party - the answer is always 'yes' unless I'm on a TIGHT deadline.
