Procrastination is a common problem that can have negative consequences. One way to reduce the chance of procrastination is to use the “2-minute rule.” This rule states that you should work for only two minutes on a task before deciding if it is worth completing. If the task takes longer than two minutes, you should move on to something else.
This rule can be helpful in several ways. First, it helps you identify when a task is manageable and when it is not. Second, it teaches you to focus on tasks that are important and necessary. Third, it helps you break down large tasks into smaller ones so that they are more manageable. Finally, using the 2-minute rule can help you avoid procrastinating altogether by forcing you to complete small tasks quickly.
