I wrote before about the (gasp) benefits of procrastination.
Now I want to talk about how sometimes putting important things off until later can be beneficial for other things. Here is the key in all of this however, know thyself.
I get things done on time, not always early but on time. Sometimes I do less important things first and it helps me accomplish more in the long term.
The way it works is that sometimes having a ton of time to do something is not beneficial. To counteract this if I have more time to do something I will work on less important things.
I know myself and I know that I will still meet my deadlines even if I put a task off a little bit. This way however, I accomplish more in the meantime instead of spending tons of time dealing over one task. I call it productive procrastination because I am doing something else I need to do like blogging.
It’s a simple time hack and it works for me.
Do you have any unusual time hacks to share?
