The busy procrastinator

You have over-committed and have no time left. Even if you have time, you sometimes don't see the point in spending time on those tasks.

Typical behaviours:

  • You're multitasking.
  • You get about 70% done off your endless to-do list, but don't see results.
  • You want to spend time will all your favourite projects.

Solution: If a task is irrelevant, stop the task. Use only the best-performing ways to achieve your objectives. Prioritize your goals and work on one at a time. Also, know that you can make progress at a slower pace.

The more you work, the less it feels like a grind

Procrastinators severely overestimate how hard it is to finish a task.
