3 Free Online Time Management Tools For The Perpetual Procrastinator

Show of hands: who finds themselves constantly trying to catch up on homework and studying?

Me too.

Some days I get bursts of inspiration and write half a dozen articles ahead of schedule while other days I'm drawing a blank and scramble to write something at the last minute.

Luckily, the internet holds a nifty tool to help get our brains and schedules on track. Three tools, actually. I searched through dozens of free online time management tools, techniques, videos, and classes and chose the three best ones. I'll give you a brief description of each so you can choose which one is most suited to you!

1. Ed Gandia’s 50-Minute Focus Technique

I love Ed Gandia. He's a highly successful B2B freelance editor. I've learned so much from him as I build my own freelance editing business and I can confirm him 50-minute Focus Technique is pure gold. Follow the link to read his article! Essentially, you shut off all distractions, set a timer for 50 minutes, and hard-core focus on work. When the timer goes off, set it for 20 minutes and take a mental break. Walk around, do some yoga or meditating, complete a quick house chore, etc. Do something away from your desk. Rinse and repeat!

2. Tedx Talk: Chris Bailey’s “A More Human Approach to Productivity”

I also love Tedx Talks. Love them. You will never fail to learn something new from a Tedx Talk. In Chris Bailey's TedxLiverpool video, he explains a new way of think about productivity. He describes a productivity experiment he conducted and what he found. Is productivity really about how busy you are? Or how fast you can get something done? I'm not going to tell you. You'll have to watch Chris's video to find out! (Relax, it's less than 20 minutes)

3. Skillshare.com "Real Productivity" 

Skillshare.com offers A LOT of video classes. The most popular one I found is "Real Productivity: Create Your Ideal Week" by Michael Karnjanaprakorn, Skillshare's founder! The class includes six mini-videos totaling 23 minutes. Quick and easy! Michael's class includes an optional class project where students may share their current productivity methods (or methods they just learned because that's why we're taking the class, right?). The videos detail Michael's "Plan, Do, Review" strategy with exercises, an "Ideal Week" demo calendar, and four productivity app suggestions.

There is a catch… (Always, right?) You can sign up for a one-month free trial. So it's only one month of free stuff but if you utilize the production methods and thoroughly study the videos, you should get a fulfilling month of classes!

My peaceful place


I'm sure many of us have a peaceful place, for me I go to church to find peace and comfort. The only two places where I feel safe, at ease and comfortable are my house and my local church. During the rough times in my life, I just pray and meditate, knowing that my prayers will be answered. But even when I'm happy, or in just about any mood, I try my best to go to church as often as I can.

But Fried Chicken

Apparently being black and a vegetarian are mutually exclusive.

But Fried Chicken

For two years now I've been vegetarian. I made the decision because I love animals and do not agree with the way they are treated in the mass food industry. Many disagree with my decision but that's not where I'm going with this. I'm not PETA here to throw paint on your fur. I'm here to ask why in the living hell is being black and a vegetarian such a paradox?
