Let’s face it, for some of us, procrastinating is a way of life. I have always one of those people who works best under pressure or on a short deadline. Unfortunately, this usually leads me to becoming very stressed out, and there have been a few times when I’ve just given up on something I’m working on. It’s not always the best solution, especially when it comes to work projects or school assignments.
If you’re anything like me, some of that time procrastinating is spent on your phone, on your tablet, or on your computer doing things that can usually wait. Fortunately for us in our tech-driven world, there are several applications – 44 to be exact – provided in this infographic that can help make you more productive. (Not sure where this infographic was when I didn’t turn a paper in on time a few weeks ago.)
The apps shown are broken into categories for all your anti-productivity needs. If you have problems keeping track of what you need to complete, maybe you can look into a to-do list app or a project management tool. Or maybe you just have entirely too much to do and need help keeping track of the time you spend on certain tasks. If that sounds familiar, maybe you should download a time management app. There are also applications for helping you stay focused, which could definitely be useful if you procrastinate like I do. One of them can even block certain URLs on your computer while you work on something, and another blocks social media. (I’m looking at you, Facebook.) The list also includes apps for goal tracking, file storage, reminders, and automating things online and mobile.
Basically, there’s a little something for everyone. So don’t worry if you’re a serial procrastinator. Just remember you’re not alone, and luckily for us, there’s an app (or several) for that.
