Key Ideas

The Wild Procrastinator

You are indecisive and often deals with things in the nick of time. But procrastination has a physical and social toll as your body and your coworkers get stressed over it.

Solution: Reserve time for work and start in small chunks. After starting, it’s easier to continue. Forcing yourself to start makes use of the Zeigarnik Effect, which states that not finishing a task creates mental tension and the only way to alleviate the anxiety is by completing what you started.

The Perfectionist

You are obsessed with your idea of perfection and end up spending way too much time on a specific task. This leads to feelings of being overwhelmed, missed deadlines and delaying other priorities.

Solution: Make sure you have achievable standards that don’t get in the way. Train yourself to do things that fall short of your idea of perfection until you begin to accept that the “imperfect” but functional is enough for most things.

The Underestimator

You often miscalculate how long it will take to do something to the point of missing deadlines and having to reschedule.

Solution: Schedule more time than you expect to take to finish a task, learn how to work faster and to estimate time more accurately. Reviewing past assignments duration will give you good time estimates for future reference.

The Over-Committer

The person who always says “yes” to others and has trouble establishing boundaries. They often put other’s priorities ahead of their own and find themselves short of time and overwhelmed.

Solution: Stop saying “yes.” Identify your priorities at home and work and consider how they will be affected before accepting any request.

The Multitasker

Multitaskers believe they can juggle multiple things at once. But in reality trying to multitask leads to incomplete tasks, mistakes, and less accomplishments.

Solution: Single-tasking. Make sure that you give each task your full attention before moving on to a new one. Set aside specific blocks of time for essential functions and make sure you won’t be distracted during them.

The Firefighter

If you like being efficient and have no problem tackling new problems or emergencies but feel like everything is an emergency, then you’re a firefighter personality.

Solution: To avoid the stress of treating everything like a crisis, identify and prioritize your tasks by urgency and importance. The Eisenhower Matrix is a strategy that can help you as it sorts your tasks into four urgency categories giving your work more direction.

Personal Responsibility on Time Management

It may be tempting to blame others when we feel crunched for time. The reality is that how we spend or waste time is of our own choosing.

Learning how to manage your time takes time. Tracking your time, understanding your time management style, developing new habits and lots of trial and error are necessary

The Over-Committer

You say yes to everything and have trouble setting boundaries, or if you a boss, setting boundaries on the behavior of others who report to you. You overwhelm yourself and that leads to difficulties in fulfilling all your commitments.

You have a borderline avoidant approach to work and your high sociability gets in the way of task management and productivity.

Work Around Your Energy Levels

Productivity is directly related to your energy level.

Find your most productive hours — the time of your peak energy — and schedule Deep Work for those periods. Do low-value and low-energy tasks (also known as shallow work), such as responding to emails or unimportant meetings, in between those hours.

Plan Your Day the Night Before

Before going to bed, spend 5 minutes writing your to-do list for the next day. These tasks should help you move towards your professional and personal goals.

You’ll be better prepared mentally for the challenges ahead before waking up and there won’t be any room for procrastination in the morning. As a result, you’ll work faster and smoother than ever before.

Time Debt

The choices we make to ‘borrow’ our personal time to get work done works against us in the long run, just like the money borrowed from a credit card has to be paid back with interest in the future....

Track Your Time

You need to find out just where your time is going currently. You can use a pen and paper, a spreadsheet, or an app to visualize where you spend most of the hours in your day.

Create A Time-Blocking Template

  • Block your time for specific types of work, not individual tasks.
  • Block your time for core work like coding, designing or writing, for shallow work like daily tasks and maintenance, for meetings and emails, and fill it with frequent breaks to replenish yourself.
  • Give yourself space between blocks so that you can decompress and keep your energy levels high.
