Getting Back To Work: A Personal Productivity Toolkit

Mark Wieczorek consolidates a set of his thoughts on procrastination – what causes it and what does it take (i.e. discipline) to get back to your productivity mode. He talks about positive associations – a object or location where you can associate work positively. Another good topic he talks about is flow, which getting yourself working continuously without a sense of time:

We have seen how people describe the common characteristics of optimal experience: a sense that one’s skills are adequate to cope with the challenges at hand, in a goal-directed, rule-bound action system that provides clear cues as to how well one is performing. Concentration is so intense that there is no attention left over to think about anything irrelevant, or to worry about problems. Self-consciousness disappears, and the sense of time becomes distorted. An activity that produces such experiences is so gratifying that people are willing to do it for its own sake, with little concern for what they will get out of it, even when it is difficult, or dangerous.
Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

He also talks about the afternoon naps and possibility of time wasting in Internet.
