Reframe your task and its deadline

  • Reframe your task into a challenge. What if you got this work done before lunchtime? 
  • Challenge yourself to stay focused on a single task for as long as possible: … try a count-up timer. See how long you can remain on task. See if you can beat your last record…
  • Work away from your desk. " it’s a lot harder to believe I’m doing “real work”.
  • Changing your attitude toward the task. Think of your task as something you want to get done, to help adjust your motivation to be more internal.
