For this post, I linked a video that goes into the science of productivity and how we can utilize that to get the most out of our productivity. The part that I found most applicable to me to stop procrastination is getting started. I know once I sit down and start working, I won’t get distracted and I’ll be done sooner than I think, yet I never want to. It is explained in the video that this is because the brain imagines hardest parts to come. The Zeigarnki Effect compels people to finish a task they started. If we don’t finish, we experience discomfort and intrusive thoughts. I have definitely felt this before and it really helps me get things completed or else I can’t stop thinking about it.
