Do you put off minor to-dos until they build up and become absolutely urgent? Why do we do this to ourselves, and how can we procrastinators break our vicious cycles?

Writer Amanda Mull addressed this very topic in an article in The Atlantic called, "Why People Wait 10 Days to Do Something That Takes 10 Minutes."

How to Set Clear Goals for Your Priorities

Paige Wilcox Wed, Apr 25, 2018 @ 11:00 AM

Priorities—not to be mistaken for KPIs —outline the work you plan on doing in a given amount of time in order to achieve your desired results. A key component in achieving those desired results is clearly defining them.

You need to specify what success looks like first so you can effectively plan for  meeting —and exceeding—those measures of success.
