Have you ever thought about it? Usually, it starts with you doing your task and then you suddenly get drawn to something else such as a very magnetic distraction like facebook or 9gag. We don’t notice the first few minutes when it happens. We just suddenly get distracted and when we notice it, we tell ourselves we’re procrastinating but we don’t do anything about it. That’s the reason why we end up getting set back. After hours of being immersed in your distraction you finally tell yourself to stop. And then you get back to work but you’ve lost hours of productive time already.
Well, better than not stopping at all, right? But that shouldn’t be the case. We shouldn’t settle for an it’s-better-than-nothing attitude. We should work hard to fight it especially when you’re working on a very important task wherein not being able to reach the deadline will have great negative effects on your career and maybe even your life.
