If you’re the type of person that puts off tasks till the last minute — you’ve come to the right place. With so many schedules and tight deadlines, it sometimes feels impossible to make time for every single thing we have to tackle. Yet, we see CEOs and figureheads excel at it — how do they make it happen?
If you’re a master of procrastination, you’re not alone. In fact, research shows that 88 percent of people that participated in a survey shared that they procrastinate at least one hour a day.
That’s seven hours a week.
However, we can’t help but ask ourselves: if it’s so common, how do people thrive regardless?
One of the ways that people combat procrastination is by using technology to help them with their tasks. Nowadays, it seems like there’s an app for everything, so why not take advantage of useful apps that can help you get ahead?
Here are three apps that will change your life as a procrastinator.
For those who struggle with procrastination and are always caught on social media applications, rather than being productive, here’s an app for you. FocusMe wants you to “instantly unleash your true potential by taking control of your online habits and eliminating all obstacles.” The app allows you to block websites that distract you, limit your time on selected apps, set up regular breaks from certain websites, and even has a function that allows you to limit how often you open your email. Take that, social media!
This app goes to the procrastinators who think they’ll send reminders/notes from meetings later and forget to actually pin them. With Notes In Hive, you are able to note down anything important from Zoom meetings all while in them. According to a press release: “During the meeting, attendees can co-edit a Note in real-time and turn any talking point into an actionable task with a single click. Tasks can be assigned to owners with due dates, and their progress can be updated directly in the Note. After the meeting, Notes can also be shared externally via email for added visibility.” That sounds like maximum productivity if your work revolves around Zoom meetings.
Lastly, nTask is an app that sets reminders for you. This product is designed to help you with scheduling, management, prioritization, and tracking. Read that again! This will help you with keeping up with your deadlines and beat procrastination. It’s a one-stop shop that aims to help the user stay on top of tasks. Their slogan reads: “Say goodbye to overdue tasks and shuffling between tools to do things.”
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s end 2022 with a bang – and less procrastination!
