Psychologists have recently come up with a new way to get people to stop procrastinating.
心理學家最近想出了一個讓人們停止拖延的新方法。

 

 The carrot and stick method was long thought to be the best way to beat procrastination. When you complete a boring task or a really difficult assignment, you give yourself a reward like a big bowl of ice cream. Most of the time, however, this doesn't work because people simply reward themselves first and don't finish the task. Now, there is a new method to get people to do things on time called temptation bundling. 

威逼利誘法長久以來被視為打擊拖延的最佳方法。當你完成一項無聊或艱鉅的任務時,你給自己獎勵,像是一大碗冰淇淋。然而,這在多數時候是不管用的,因為大家都只先獎勵自己而不完成任務。現在,有一種叫「誘惑綑綁」的新方法,它能讓人們按時做好事情。


   Simply put, temptation bundling is combining something you love with a task you don't want to do into one activity. For instance, you could encourage yourself to go to the gym by only allowing yourself to watch your favorite TV show when you are there. Or, you could make it your policy to only go to your favorite cafe when you need to study. This gives you a reason to not procrastinate, and it can eventually help you turn a hated activity into something you love. You may look forward to going to the gym because you can't wait to see the next episode of your favorite show, or you might study harder while sipping a latte. Instead of running away from your duties, give temptation bundling a try.

  簡單地說,誘惑綑綁就是將你喜愛的事物與一項你不想做的任務結合成一個活動。例如,你可以只允許自己在健身房時才能看你最愛的電視節目,藉此來鼓勵自己上健身房。或者是,你可以規定自己只在需要讀書時才去你最喜歡的咖啡店。這給了你一個不拖延的理由,最後還能幫助你將一個討厭的活動變成你喜愛的事情。你或許會期待上健身房,因為你迫不及待想看你最愛節目的下一集,或是你在啜飲著拿鐵時或許會更努力用功。與其逃離你的責任,不如試試誘惑綑綁吧。
