6 Hacks to help  you stop wasting  your time


6. Forgive Yourself

Forgiveness allows the individual to move

past their maladaptive behavior and focus

on the upcoming tasks without the

burden of past acts to hinder doing it.

We often avoid doing things that make us

feel bad.

That pent-up guilt of wasting time will

keep repeating.

But, if you forgive yourself, you'll be able

to break that cycle.


5. Create and Stick to Deadlines

Things lag, just go on and on, and interest

wanes if you don't use clear time frames

for projects and goals.

Time frames create a sense of urgency

and build momentum. Momentum

creates speed.


4. Prioritize Like You're Going
On Vacation

Think about your day as if you leave

tomorrow on a long cruise with no

Internet connection.

Your macro goals should be your big-picture


But, micro quotas are the minimum amount

of work you must do daily to make your

bigger goals a reality.

Quotas make each day approachable. And

your goals become achievable because of


A quote by Tim Ferriss: "Two crappy pages.

That is my quota. Everyday, I have to write

two crappy pages. That's it. If I write two

crappy work pages, that day is a win."


1. Try the 2-Minute Rule

Most of the tasks you procrastinate on aren't

difficult to complete.

The first part of this rule is that if a task takes

under two-minutes or less to complete, do it


Example: Responding to an email or tossing

your laundry into the dryer.

The second part of this rule is that when

starting new habits, it should take less than

minutes to do.

Once we get started, "we perceive the task as

much less aversive than we do when we're

avoiding it."
