Procrastination and Time Management Method


One example of a method for keeping track of your streaks is the Seinfeld strategy, which involves marking a big red X in your calendar on each day where you complete your daily goal. Alternatively, if you’re using a time-management app, it’s likely that it will have a setting that will allow you to keep track of your streaks in the app.

The Eisenhower Matrix. This method involves categorizing each task that you have based on whether it’s important or unimportant and based on whether it’s urgent or not urgent, and then prioritizing your tasks based on these criteria.

Stephen Covey, author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, also wrote 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families.  He has a very impactful perspective on time management.  His idea is that we do things most of the time that are urgent and important - "putting out fires" - and never get to the most important longer term projects we want to accomplish, because at this moment they are not urgent.

The Ivy Lee method. This method involves preparing a to-do list at the end of each day, and writing down a list of six tasks that you want to complete tomorrow, ranked in order of importance.

Pomodoro Technique, which is a time-management technique where you use a timer in order to organize your workflow. The Pomodoro Technique entails working on your tasks for a set amount of time (e.g. 25 minutes), and then taking a short break (e.g. 5 minutes), before starting to work again. In addition, as part of the Pomodoro, once you complete a certain number of work cycles (e.g. 4 cycles), you can take a longer break (e.g. 30 minutes), before getting back to work.
