Send progress updates to a friend or colleague
If you want to stop procrastinating at work, then treat the office like the gym and find a partner who will keep you accountable.
A 2015 study from Dominican University found that when workers were required to send weekly updates to a friend, more than 70 percent reported that they successfully achieved their goals.
Comparatively, only 35 percent of subjects who kept their to-dos to themselves were able to actually get through them.
