Set a short timeframe

“If you don’t want to do something, make a deal with yourself to do at least five minutes of it,” says Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom. “After five minutes, you’ll end up doing the whole thing.”

The “two-minute rule”  has two parts.

It takes time to get into a rhythm to work on a task. Instead of constantly starting and stopping that process, it’s better to keep your rhythm going by bundling similar tasks together.

Use the 1-3-5 rule when putting together her daily to-do list.

It creates artificial pressure that trains you to deal with real pressure during your career. Procrastinators have to learn to prioritize. 

Instead of just randomly quitting a task, make sure you leave off at a place that will inspire you to get going next time you’re ready to pick it up.
