Getting Started Takes Just Two Minutes

Reading time: 0.5 min

I dreaded working on a paper today, and I've been putting it off all morning and noon.

By the afternoon, I told myself to use the two-minute method.

I told myself that I'd work on the paper for two minutes. If I really wanted to stop by the end of those two minutes, then I may stop. All I have to do now is open the documents and read the highlighted paragraph (that my past self highlighted for easy continuation).

I had successfully put my foot in the door and started working on my paper.

Ended up working on this paper for over an hour. I can't count how many times this strategy has been helpful.
