These days, there’s hardly any other kind of distraction that is as potent as the communication network. Likely your work involves being on the Internet. You might need to do some decisive settings on your system or browser. For example, why not disable or block emails and notifications that distract you?
Again, I’m accusing social media here; and rightly so. It can be a big distraction. I know some chronic procrastinators who have gone as drastic as deactivating their accounts on the social media. Some even uninstalled those apps. Well, I’m not recommending that for anyone and in my opinion, it’s somewhat extreme.
Nevertheless, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media are powerful tools that procrastination uses to steal your time. To confirm it, the next time you’re on Facebook or other social media, please check the amount of time you spend there. That will let you know where your time is if you’re finding out why you don’t have the time for important tasks. To prevent social media from stealing away your time, always disconnect your phone from the Internet when you’re at work. You might put your phone on the silence mode or even switch it off.
