Set two deadlines and try to accomplish the task by the first one


Lack of time can be an engine of productivity

We often tend to procrastinate with some of our tasks, especially if they are boring and not interesting. And only when we realize that the task due date expires, we start working more effectively. If it's exactly about you, the best solution for you is to create artificial lack of time. Set two deadlines for each of your unpleasant tasks: fake deadline for you to motivate yourself to complete the task faster and real task due date. Keep the ample time reserve between these deadlines. In that way you will motivate yourself to work productively and won't hazard timely task accomplishment.

"Two deadlines setting" To Do List

  • Before you start doing the task, define its due date
  • Estimate what time interval you should keep before final due date just in case and set first deadline
  • Start doing the task so as you have to complete it by first deadline
  • Use software to set two deadlines for the task

Action plan

  1. Start your task management software
  2. Create a new task
  3. Enter its final due date
  4. Open tab Reminder, activate Reminder option
  5. Select required time interval to be reminded before due date
