How to avoid ‘precrastination’

  • Ask yourself if a task can benefit from added time. Those that require creativity, thoughtfulness, or emotion will need a slower response.
  • Identify the tasks you can rush through.
  • Keep a calendar and to-do list. Externalizing what's cluttering your mind will leave you with energy to channel elsewhere.
