‘Timeboxing’ Trends as Tool to Overcome Procrastination

Timeboxing is a technique that can help procrastinators.

Timeboxing is a technique that can help procrastinators.   It works by allotting a maximum amount of time for an activity in advance then work on the activity during the fixed time period and stop working on it once the time is up.   You assess whether you’ve reached your planned goals, then re-access and block more time if needed.  Procrastinators often over estimate the amount of time it will take to do something (hence the procrastinating dread of the task) so you may be pleasantly surprised when you finish ahead of schedule.  Many apps now offer the technique that can be downloaded on your phone.
