Procrastination is one of the most common challenges creative people face. Procrastination is not limited to only one area, it often happens throughout different paths of our life.
But there are several reasons why a person might do such a thing. And different solutions depending on the reason.

Eisenhower’s Urgent/Important Matrix
The one main task a day table – prioritize just one task to finish 100%
- SCRUM Framework
- Prioritized task list is created – usually called a product backlog.
- During planning, the team chooses a few tasks of that task list, it is called a sprint backlog, distributes the task accordingly and decides how to complete them.
- Each team member has a task deadline — a sprint (usually two to four weeks) — to complete its work, but it meets each day to assess its progress (daily Scrum).
- The Team leader, in this situation called ScrumMaster has the task to keep everyone goal-oriented and motivated.
