Who here hasn't procrastinated before? Almost everyone in fact. But sometimes procrastination isn't a bad thing, and but minimizing it is always helpful. The Wall Street Journal has a solution to time out your procrastination by drinking a big glass of water before you dive in.
Instead of using timers or clocks to cut down on your procrastination, the Journal suggest to rely on your internal clock and by drinking a bunch of water before checking your email.
Take a big drink of water before settling in to answer your email. Your natural alarm clock will break the spell before the whole day is gone.
