Open-ended tasks are any tasks that don't have a definite endpoint. Activities like "studying", "working" or "tweaking" waste your time and cause procrastination. "I should really study" is open-ended because it does not have a specific to-do list to learn the material.
A solution is to close all the ends. Set up specific to-do lists which outlines your tasks on what needs to be done. When the to-do list is completed, you stop.
When you have countless open loops in your life, you will never be able to relax.
Once some people complete their to-do list, they add more work. This is a dangerous move that can sabotage your productivity.
