This video is perfect. Why? Because it’s titled “The Science of Procrastination – And How To Manage It” and I kid you not, I’ve had it open on my desktop, waiting to blog about it, for OVER A MONTH! How ironic is that? The excuse I’m going to give is that I’ve been too busy to share it, but the truth of the matter, is that I’ve been procrastinating!

This video, from the crew at AsapSCIENCE, discusses some of the biggest explanations for WHY we procrastinate, and suggests some very simple solutions for how to minimize that habit! I’ve even tried some of these lately, and as long as you’re motivated to be more productive, I can tell you that they do work!

Take a few minutes and check out this quick video! …. or just put it off until later.

This topic also reminded me of an article written by a good friend of mine, Adam Griffin (who works at an amazing company called Full Contact). His article was titled “4 Easy Tips for Managing Your Busy Schedule“. Yep, only four! Click on the link to go straight to the article, but here’s the summary: 1- Have a plan, 2- Create time blocks and stick to them, 3- Hire an assistant like a boss, and 4- Work in Sprints. He breaks each one down into easy-to-follow suggestions, so check out his ideas and give it a shot!
