Distractions And How I Try To Avoid Them

Today I had no university. But that didn’t mean I had nothing to do. I had a lot to do. I had to learn so much for my exams next week! But today I also noticed how hard it is to ignore distractions. Distractions are everywhere. A few examples: I want to write a simple mail to someone at the company, but I find another mail… I want to do some online exercises but while typing the URL into the address bar, my eye catches something in the auto completion list… A notification appears on my phone and instead of turning it off, I keep using it and eventually end up watching YouTube videos instead of learning.

I Should Fix My Life

Things aren’t going well currently. My procrastination is my top activity and the list with tasks to do is growing each day. My room is a mess and I’m using my phone more than I should. But what’s wrong? Why is my motivation kidding me? Why can’t I get myself to do something productive? Like writing an article or writing a few lines of code? But instead I somehow end up watching YouTube videos, scrolling through my Twitter feed and browsing the web.
