Are you anticipating the answer?

Use this when you’re procrastinating and delaying your work. Set a rule for yourself to do the work—prepare dinner, do the laundry, make your bed—after counting from 10 to 1. This tricks your mind into action. It works almost every time.

2. The 2-Minute Hack

Can’t get yourself to the gym? Focus on accomplishing the first 2 minutes of the entire process – putting on your sports shoes. The momentum built up by this small action matters.

Want to make it better? Combine the 10-Second Hack with it.

3. The 5-Minute Hack

When you’re tempted to do what you shouldn’t do—eating the dessert when you’re on a diet, watching a YouTube video when you’re writing, playing video games before bed—use this hack.

Simply wait for 5 minutes. That 5 minutes will eventually kill your urge of falling for the temptation.

. . .

Combining these three hacks, you’re crushing your procrastination and transforming your habits in no time.
