A quick tip on preventing procrastination:
Whatever it is you want to do, whether it’s check email or facebook, or read the news, or play a game, or whatever, recognize that it will be there later. The news will always be there to read. That game isn’t going away. Facebook updates will all be there at the end of the day.
Unless it’s something that must be done now, don’t divert your attention. After all, those things will still be there at the end of the day, or the end of the week, when you have otherwise unoccupied time.
The minutes, once used, are gone forever.
