Procrastination hack: “(10+2)*5”
From 43 Folders
Following on the idea of the procrastination dash and Jeff’s progressive dash, I’ve been experimenting with a squirelly new system to pound through my procrastinated to-do list. Brace yourself, because it is a bit more byzantine than is Merlin 2005’s newly stripped-down habit. It’s called (10+2)*5, and today it will save your ass.
Who it’s for
- the easily distracted
- compulsive web-surfers
- people with a long list of very short tasks (a/k/a Ã¢â‚¬Å“mosquitosÃ¢â‚¬Â)
- people having trouble chipping away at very large tasks
