20 Minutes of Focus
I have recently devised a strategy that has helped me to accomplish a great deal of procrastinated work in a short amount of time. I call this strategy 20 Minutes of Focus. Instead of putting that important task off, I focus all of my energy on doing it for only 20 minutes. Here is how to do it:
- Identify the task or project that is most important, the one that you keep procrastinating.
- Identify what to do next.
- Set a timer for 20 minutes. I have been using this countdown timer.
- Start the timer and focus on this specific task for the full 20 minutes.
