I read once "productivity is elimination of distractions" or something like that.
And honestly, it has worked so far.
Motivation is even better tho. But if I'm really unmotivated, or anxious, I subconsciously create distractions; then I have to deal with me inner child. Point is, motivation has a direct line to productivity, so I usually don't do what I can't bring yourself to do.2
Just pump me full of those small dopamine rushes I get when the funny numbers goes up~
Aka YT view, GitHub achivements | stars | 👍, twitter ❤, ..
Disconnect from everything that you're thinking of for a moment. Step away from your computer, and dump all of your thoughts out for about five minutes.
In better terms: clear your cache. Your devices need it, and you need it too. Bonus points if you give your eyes a stretch and look outside your window.2
Deliberate and fully conscious procrastination. Distract yourself deliberately every few hours. Do something completely different in your free time and when procrastinating.
Also, take your time, think things through.
When debugging obvious typos and "impossible" causalities that you still not see after reparsing the code the tenths time - calm down, procrastinate a bit, and restart debugging - discarding assumptions and result from the previous tries.6
In my case, the only way to stay productive is to task switch often. Suffering of adhd, I get bored of researching / developing a specific solution rather quickly, and then have a huge issue staying focused.
That's also why I can't imagine being a programmer. Being a sysadmin, however, is great! Dealing with many different tickets a day.

How do I create a collab post? The only buttons visible to me is the giant + for creating regular rants that would end up on the feed. But the special collab page, along with the template all collabs are written with imply there should be a separate creation button for it, somewhere. Is it the wk247 thing?4
