Judith Vasquez's curator insight, April 4, 2016 12:59 AM
Procrastination is my biggest enemy. I put off things to do and I'm conscious of what I’m doing, but I lie to myself and say "I'll do it later." Then the outcome is me trying to finish something last minute and causing unnecessary stress on myself. I know what I should do like make a planner, and things like that, which is why I decided to read this article because it says “A Way to Trick your Brain,” which is something I didn’t know and though might be helpful. What the author basically explained is that the more we repeat what we need to do to ourselves, the more hectic a task seems to our brain. The harder the task seems to us, the more likely it is that we’ll procrastinate in doing it. So she suggests to complete the task right away, or write it down. This is helpful for me because I tend to not do even the easiest things for no reason. I find this credible because the author described her past experience with this and how she managed many tasks using this method.
