CA­REER COACH STEAL­ING PRE­CIOUS TIME BACK!

BEEN PRO­CRAS­TI­NAT­ING ON HOW TO BEAT YOUR PRO­CRAS­TI­NA­TION HABITS? TH­ESE HELP­FUL APPS WILL SORT YOU OUT IN NO TIME!

CLEO (Malaysia) - - GUY SPY -

The clock’s tick­ing, and your su­per­vi­sor is hov­er­ing over your cu­bi­cle re­mind­ing you that the re­port you’ve been work­ing on for the past two weeks is due by the end of the day. You shrug and tell your­self you’ve got time. Next thing you know it’s al­most time to head home and that re­port is far from be­ing done, just like ev­ery­thing else on your ta­ble that is still pend­ing.

Sounds fa­mil­iar? There are a few rea­sons why this habit has be­come a norm. Some­times the project you’re work­ing on could be so com­pli­cated that you don’t know where to start. There are some peo­ple who are afraid that the re­sults of their work will not meet the ex­pec­ta­tions of their su­pe­ri­ors so they end up post­pon­ing their work. Then there are those who do their best work while un­der pres­sure or spend all those long hours get­ting lost in the deep, dark re­cesses of Buz­zfeed and don’t start work un­til there’s barely an hour left be­fore their dead­line is up.

The good thing about pro­cras­ti­nat­ing is that there’s a way out of it as long as you don’t pro­cras­ti­nate on get­ting help! Since you’re buried un­der that moun­tain of over­due work, I fig­ured I’d make things a lit­tle eas­ier for you by check­ing out the lat­est apps to help curb pro­cras­ti­na­tion once and for all. Here’s what I found.

IF YOU’RE: DIS­OR­GAN­ISED

You can’t tell head from tail of what­ever

FACT

you’re do­ing be­cause you feel over­loaded the mo­ment you’re as­signed a new task. It’s age-old ad­vice but mak­ing a list and ac­tu­ally stick­ing to it is just what you need. THE APP TO TRY: ANY.DO (iOS, AN­DROID, CHROME AND FIRE­FOX) This award-win­ning app al­lows you to key in and sched­ule all your tasks that need to be done. It will then re­mind you pre­cisely at the time you’ve pro­grammed it to. That’s not all – this mul­ti­task­ing task app will also bom­bard you with con­stant re­minders of your pend­ing tasks via no­ti­fi­ca­tions pinned to the phone’s sta­tus bar and your Google Chrome page.
