Procrastinating on Purpose to Be More Productive — Rory Vaden

I have a fatal productivity flaw in my life. I procrastinate on many tasks in my daily agenda. I have no idea why. Personally I hate it. People around me tend to hate it as well and I constantly try to fix the tendency. It’s not an easy habit to drop.

According to Rory Vaden, procrastinating on purpose means spending time on things today that save you time tomorrow. By doing this you are multiplying time. The most productive people are multipliers.

As Rory says, just checking tasks off a list can be its own form of procrastination. Rory also had some thoughts on how to focus, questions to ask yourself daily to be more productive — to engage the most productive version of procrastination. By the way, multi-tasking is a bad idea as well.
