You have to realize that sometimes it is procrastination and sometimes it is just you allocating time in a more effective way. You must realize whether you are actually procrastinating or do you genuinely don't have enough time
One suggestion is saying that it doesn't count as procrastination unless you planned to do the activity
We as humans naturally procrastinate because we are always thinking of benefiting ourselves in the short term rather than the long term. So when we realize that we are procrastinating it makes no sense to be mad at ourselves rather we should acknowledge we are procrastinating and make the conscious decision whether we are going to continue procrastinating or rather go and accomplish our life goal.
If we realize that we are not doing what we are supposed to do rather than just saying "I need to try harder" and " This isn't good enough" We should instead focus on changing how we go about doing things. We need to learn to make things easier for ourselves
Trying harder is rarely ever the solution
If we have the mindset that, I am a human I can just try harder and accomplish anything I set my mind to we will undoubtedly fail here are some steps that we should take instead
If you already don't want to accomplish the goal, or you hate doing the task and you feel like you have to do it. The chances you will fail will be very high
Humans only have a limited amount of willpower available to them each day, so make sure that you figure out ways to enjoy the tasks that you have to do.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
