Procrastination Killer help you time and controls work dashes.

Work for ten minutes with single-minded focus on moving toward completion on a single task. After 10 minutes of sweaty, dedicated work you get a 2-minute break to do whatever you want. When the two minutes are up, it’s back to work.

You should first start with the default 10 and 2 minutes interval, and then adapt it if you want longer work dash on longer breaks.

Why would this help killing procrastination?

By making even the most modest bit of progress on your hated task, you’ve done what once seemed impossible: you got started.

Feel like working more?

Well just work more! The break time won’t start as long as you did not hit the OK button when the software request for a break.

What is Procrastination Killer :

This idea of this software came from one “procrastination hack” on 43folders.com.

Who it’s for

(10+2)*5

  • procrastinators
  • the easily distracted
  • compulsive web-surfers
  • people with a long list of very short tasks (a/k/a “mosquitos”)
  • people having trouble chipping away at very large tasks

How it works

It’s called “(10+2)*5” and here’s why:

  • 10 – Work for ten minutes with single-minded focus on moving toward completion on a single task. Ten minutes, and that’s all you’re allowed to do is work, work, work. No cheating, because (DING!) you actually get a break when you’re done…
  • 2 – After ten minutes of sweaty, dedicated work you get a 2-minute break to do whatever you want—drink coffee, read 5ives, call your bookie, whatever. When the two minutes are up, it’s back to work on the next task on your list. This is important.
  • *5 – You’re going to iterate this four more times for a total of one hour’s working/breaking

Important squirrely rules

  • You do not need to finish your task or your project in ten minutes; you just need to move it forward
  • If you finish a satisfying amount of work in fewer than ten minutes, STOP, and go right to your 2-minute break, than start another 10-minute dash
  • Do NOT skip breaks! You are not allowed. Breaks cannot be missed. Period. Go surf the web. Now. Seriously. GO!

What will happen

You’ll blaze through an hour’s worth of work/not work and will find yourself looking forward to both the breaking and working parts of the cycle. (Dang, how’s that for a change?)
