A Useful App For Procrastinators Like Me

Do you know that there different types of procrastinators? Check out what kind you are over here. I tried the test myself and found that I'm a Pinball Procrastinator. This means that I don't accomplish my tasks because I easily get distracted and do other things. I also like to bounce from one pursuit to another that I don't get to do what needs to be done now. Oftentimes, I get overwhelmed by too many ideas that it takes me a long time to get started, if I even decide to start at all.


Pomodoro App

Recently, I downloaded the Pomodoro timer and it has helped me a lot to finish my tasks. Let's say I want to write a couple of blog posts in 2 hours. I do all the things I need to do for my posts in 25 minutes (ie. draft, edit pictures, rewrite, etc). Then I take a break for five minutes, then come back and work on my blog posts again for another 25 minutes. Since I'm the type to get easily distracted (I often visit other blogs, look at Pinterest, or Facebook) this works perfectly for me. The timer makes me think I have a deadline, so I really focus within that 25 minutes. Plus, I actually look forward to the 5 minute break. 

Check out the principle behind the Pomodoro technique. It's quite interesting. What about you? What do you do when you feel like putting off your To-do list?
