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.

Competition Motivates Me

I am an hobby Android developer and the developer of an app called Teleposter. It’s a simple and lightweight wrapper around the publishing platform Telegraph, which is created by Telegram and helps people publish articles the most simplest way. It’s even more simple than Medium. You don’t need to create any account or something like this. Just write and publish. It is pretty nice for Telegram Channel owners, who like to share some more information than possible in a simple Telegram message.
