These are vertiginous times. Technology and consumism fill every little piece of our life. It's easy to get distracted from you really want. Maybe, you want to be more productive in your work, or you desire to learn that musical language you hear in your tv series. However, a demon called procrastination come to remind you every moment there is a social network called Facebook waits for you, or maybe that red notification on Tinder's icon call you to check it out.
Procrastination is a very common human activity. When you pospone or avoid an important or urgent task replacing it by other more irrelevant or pleasant, then you fall into the whirlwind of procrastination. It's difficult to beat this natural phenomenom, you must secure to have enough patience and strong will. The key, I think, from my perspective, it isn't beat it, but handle it to minimize their influence in our daily routine. You can apply the Two Minutes Rule, or Seinfeld Strategy, but the important it's to known it existence and manage your time and energy efficently.
From my personal experience, I use the Eisenhower Matrix. In practice, the matrix is divided en four zones by two axes: one axis represents urgency, and the other axis represents importance o significance. You collect all your tasks and clasify them by order of these two axes: urgency and importance. The urgent tasks you can divide them into two zones: those that must do it right now, and those that you can delegate them. The non urgent tasks you classify them into those that you introduce in your calendar (and must do it before date) and those that are not important and you can take them and throw them to the "Recicly Bin".
The important is to honor your matrix and do it. Do yourself a favor and manage your time. The knowledge is power and power is to have time to do whatever you want.
