We have done a lot of practice, tried various methods and almost all the tomato and efficiency apps on the market, and finally streamlined a new set of concepts:
1. Why are we procrastinating?
With the rise of smart applications, there are more and more interesting things on mobile phones, games, short videos ... They almost occupy our fragmented time. At the same time, they make our cost of obtaining happiness lower and lower. In the long run, our threshold for happiness is getting higher and higher. We are less and less impatient to do things that seem dull but more beneficial in the long run.
2. Still have to stay away from the phone
Therefore, using the phone as little as possible, returning to reality, and doing more things that allow us to "delay gratification" is the most effective way to combat delay. We also insist on focusing on timing as the core means. During the focus period, we cannot use other apps to return to reality.
3. Starting concentration is not so easy-the 5 second rule
The biggest problem for senior procrastinators is that they are afraid to start doing something, and any small factor around them will often be the reason they cannot start.
The 5 second rule is: if you ca n’t always decide to start doing something, then you start counting down from 5 and start counting down to 0. The 5 second rule is actually a ritual. This ritual helps you ignore the external factors around you and gives you a reason to start focusing. The design that delays the Terminator App will have a 5-second countdown when you start to focus on the above considerations.
4. It's not so easy to stay focused
The traditional Pomodoro timing is to focus on 25 minutes and rest for 5 minutes at a time, but we later found that for many people who are procrastinating, this is not difficult. If the goal at the beginning is more difficult, and when you do n’t reach the goal, you will get negative feedback (the negative feedback of the forest focus on the forest is stronger, it will give you a dead tree), this kind of negative feedback will let you More and more afraid to start focusing.
The five-minute principle is that when you think something is difficult, you can try to do it for five minutes first, and after five minutes, you will most likely enter a focused state. The Procrastination Terminator App has been further optimized based on this. Our focus timing is in units of 5 minutes. You will see a 5-minute progress bar. We have weakened the display of the total length of focus. Can aim for 5 minutes of concentration, which greatly reduces the difficulty of the goal. At the same time, we have weakened the negative feedback of interrupting the focus time, so that interruption no longer brings guilt, so that you are no longer afraid of starting.
We hope that you do n’t want to concentrate for a few hours at once, but set your goals smaller. Starting from 5 minutes of concentration, you will find that 5 minutes of concentration is not so difficult.
When you aim to focus on 5 minutes each time, slowly, you will find it easy to focus, and immersed in the atmosphere of concentration, unconsciously focus on one after another for 5 minutes, forget time.
5. Cancel the rest
The five-minute break of the Pomodoro Technique was actually a mechanism a long time ago, when there was no smartphone. In today's smarter mobile phones, if you insist on rest for 5 minutes, you will find that during this 5-minute break, you may play your mobile phone with a high probability, which will interrupt your concentration and enter concentration. State is a difficult thing.
Therefore, we have eliminated the rest time, and we hope that everyone can aim for as much concentration time as possible every time, and constantly improve their single concentration time.
