15 Ways to Beat Procrastination [infographic]

Chances are if you’re a college student, the next week or two will be your least favorite time of year. That’s right, everyone… IT’S FINALS TIME! I could be wrong, though. Maybe you love finals, because it means winter break is almost here. Or maybe you’re one of those lucky students who took their finals early, which is awesome. You better be celebrating!

For those of you who aren’t in college, you may be questioning why you should keep reading this Daily Infographic. Well, I’ll tell you why. Today, we’ve got some friendly advice on beating your horrible habit of procrastinating. (Don’t worry, y’all. It happens to the best of us. As much as I try to tell myself that I’ll be on top of everything for the month, I’m usually not.)

The good news is that being a procrastinator doesn’t necessarily mean you’re lazy. It might be caused by anxiety, fear of failure, or negative perfectionism. According to the infographic, one out of every five adults are chronic procrastinators, so we’re definitely not alone.

If you look at four of your friends/classmates/coworkers and you’re the one who hasn’t studied, written your paper, or finished a project, you might be the procrastinator. I promise you’ll be okay, though. Today’s infographic provides you with 15 different ways to stop procrastinating, and start getting stuff done.

And if you procrastinate a little too much before your final and are thinking about pulling an all-nighter, you might want to reconsider after looking at this infographic. Now, if only I would take my own advice.

The Low-Down on Music’s Impact on Our Productivity [infographic]

Surprise! Music helps productivity. I can attest to that right this moment. I may not be using today’s infographic’s recommended pop genre, but Vulfpeck just lets my productivity flow.

Trying out different genres has helped greatly when it comes to finding what helps me be productive, in correspondence with the task at hand. Classical or post-modern rock does an awesome job at getting my mind flowing for puzzles and math problems. Upbeat rap, punk, and EDM makes any physical work I have do just fly by. Finally when I’m writing, it’s all about that funk and soul. Groovy stuff. Like anything in life, we all differ when it comes to preferences. I’m sure some of you couldn’t fathom listening to anything when at work. The co-worker even tapping their foot too much may make you livid.

This may be off topic, but listening to ambient and calm music can help me focus – when it comes to sleeping. I’ve listened to certain CDs so often before I drift off to sleep that when I hear one of the songs on the radio, my eyes immediately start to droop.

Check out some other Health Benefits of Music here after you’ve checked out today’s infographic.

8 Unsettling Facts About Horrible Bosses [infographic]

Bad bosses – we’ve all been there. They’re loud, they’re cruel, they don’t appreciate you, and they chastise you for no good reason. Learning to manage a team of people usually takes a good mentor in the first place. Bad bosses spawn more bad bosses. Your boss may suck right now, but I guarantee their boss isn’t too kind either.

Learning how to be a good leader takes observation, communication, and responsibility. Obviously our corporate leaders aren’t practicing these characteristics well enough: 50 percent of employees of bad bosses plan on finding a different place to work. This number is huge. The loss of talent that comes from bad management just isn’t worth it.

A solution for horrible bosses can be simple. Training. Those higher up in the organization need to set goals and responsibilities for lower management positions and train them how to treat their team to meet said goals.

In the past we’ve published the 12 Outstanding Personality Traits of a Great Boss, where you can check out some of the good facts about your workplace leader.

Common Garage Door Issues [infographic]

Is your garage ready for the winter? Nature can be an ugly beast, and you definitely don’t want your car to be ruined by the elements. So, grab your tools, WD-40, and let’s head to the garage!

One of the most common troubles a garage door faces is a broken set of torsion springs. These usually break down and become rusty simply because of the wear and tear of time. It is important that you check them every now and then, because you don’t want them to bust while the door is moving!

Warped or misaligned tracks, however, need to be taken care of ASAP. Take it from someone who has spent four hours trying to knock a door back in place because the wheels came off the track. It is not fun. And also from personal experience (as I am now realizing I’ve fixed several garage doors), bending it back into place can work, but honestly, it’s probably time for a new track. If not, you will be dealing with that stupid warped piece every two or three days, until eventually, your entire door is broken.

Springs are another big one. Most injuries caused by garage doors result from faulty springs. If they are rusty, replace them. You do not want to take a chance with those springs busting while you’re trying to pull out and having the entire door slide down onto your car.

Now, I have imparted to you my knowledge of garage doors. This infographic will fill you in on the rest.
