Stop procrastinating with the Ten Minute Rule

  • Psychologically, procrastination is the result of a battle between your limbic system and prefrontal cortex in your brain
  • The Ten minute rule tricks you into getting started by talking yourself into thinking you can do the task
  • Once you get started, you get to realistically appraise how long and hard the task is going to be and decide whether or not you want to continue working on it
