Really hit the nail as to how to avoid procrastination.

As the article was a bit too long for my taste for “1 Thing”, here are the key points for me:

  1. Procrastination always starts with just a single distraction. Once you give into this, you lost the game. Therefore, avoid any distraction.
  2. You need to have an inner drive, a reason for doing what you are doing. The task you are working on has to become part of the bigger picture.

Here is a little bonus tip from me regarding the first point: Environmental Design is key.

Most of the distractions can be avoided by simply making them invisible. Clean up your desk. Put your phone out of sight and reach. Disable YouTube recommended videos. Get tunnel vision and flow. These little things alone will have tremendous impact.
