Tips for managing email overload
Make a list of things you need to do and do the one you don't want to do first. Then give yourself a little reward for doing it (a piece of candy, a few minutes on social media, etc).

... then put it on the calendar.
Treat the deadline the same as if your boss created it, and then honor it the same way you would if your boss were waiting for you to complete the task.

To be accountable to another person helps us personally and professionally.
Accountability implies commitment, that you not only let yourself down but that partner. Find that partner who will help you overcome procrastination.
Set an intention and then shut off tempting interruptions.
Remember, this is just another muscle you build so just set the scene to make focusing possible.
When you don't feel motivated, take the smallest step possible toward your goal.
Instead of telling yourself to workout for an hour, say you'll go for 10 minutes.
Taking a step bypasses that part of your brain that is alerted when you're trying to make a change.
Notice your thoughts, feelings, behaviors and the situation when you feel like procrastinating. Write these down.
Once you understand your pattern, you can hold yourself accountable in a positive and self-compassionate way.
A daily non-negotiable is something you commit to doing every single day no matter what. It is something you don't have to think about because you have already committed to doing it.
For whatever your past experience has been, refocus on doing 5% more toward your goal and give yourself permission to be human at the same time.

Delaying gratification can actually help people focus on getting something done. To give it a try, choose the task and the customized reward (food, check social media, call a friend, etc.) before starting as a direct motivator.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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.
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!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
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!
