So why is it that feeling overwhelmed leads to procrastination? That’s like feeling hungry preventing me from eating. It must be one of the most strange and illogical impulses. Do you have too much to do? Better clean your desk.
I blocked distraction sites from my work browser (I use leechblock). That didn’t help, strangely. Other tricks:
Brain.fm – focus
Pomodoro – Set a timer for 25 min sprints + 5 min breaks
Coffee. Lots of coffee.
