We ve all put off projects or tasks that are tough or we don t want to do.
Skip the procrastination by giving yourself two minutes to make an action plan.
This is a variation on the idea of just start , where jumping into a task is the best way to avoid procrastination, but adds a two minute buffer for you to think through things.
Next time you have a tough task, give yourself two minutes to think of an action plan, then you can jump in.
The two minute time limit ensures you don t unconsciously procrastinate by spending hours researching a project without actually starting any work.
By focusing on next steps rather than frustration or self-pity, you tackle tasks more quickly and efficiently.
