There are some tips that I have applied to my life now, such as using a note app, and I took the author’s advice and started using Evernote, which is good!
I took a special interest in the procrastination section, and I have used some of the advice, such as procrastinating by doing something useful, and it has really helped me to do some things sooner, instead of doing what I would usually do and leave it all to the last minute.
