Effective learning frameworks and approaches
Your parents, siblings, or other important role models may have demonstrated a “put it off” attitude, which you’ve now adopted as your own.
Solution: Talk to yourself about the negative consequences these role models faced when they procrastinated. Then find new role models to mimic, specifically those who take action and experience positive results because of it.
Solution: Challenge yourself to open your mind and prove your bias wrong. Use the task as an opportunity to combat your bias.
Solution: Make a habit of starting earlier than you think you’ll need to and work on completing your task early.
Solution: Remind yourself about the gains of the future, and de-emphasize the frustration of the present.
You think, “It has to be perfect,” and this overly demanding standard keeps you from even getting started.
Solution: Work on diminishing the importance of doing things perfectly and emphasize the importance of completing tasks in a timely fashion. Keep a list of examples of times when perfectionism has been unhelpful to you, and of times when task completion has been more helpful to you.
Solution: Get proper treatment, including individual therapy with a licensed therapist. In addition to ruling out physical causes for your mood or anxiety.
Sometimes breaking your tasks into smaller, more manageable chunks maybe help.
Procrastination often comes from a belief that discomfort should be avoided, and you practice procrastination whenever you feel physically or psychologically uncomfortable.
Solution: Challenge your beliefs about tolerating discomfort and revise what you say to encourage yourself to engage in a task.
Focus on the longer-term rewards and start seeing discomfort as a prerequisite for growth, rather than as the enemy.

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!
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.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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!
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.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
