Getting things done can be tough for some people. Some people are big procrastinators and don’t get things done on time, or efficiently. Working from home during the pandemic makes it worse because we have all of these things in our home that can distract us from working efficiently. Using things such as a reminder app, Trello, etc. can help you get things done on time.
