Processing: Next Task and Categorize
The next step is determine whether the task is actionable or not and what the next action is. It is important to note the key word here: action. Many people think they have to plan out their actions before they do it and this is where procrastination begins. In situations, where you feel like delaying it or add unnecessary actions before hand to delay the inevitable you can do it now or later but they the task has to be done and wouldn’t you prefer get done and spend your time after not worrying. For those of you who struggle with procrastination I would recommend you read Mel Robbins book, the 5 second rule. If something like paying a bill, depending on whether you can pay the bill immediately or you’re waiting for your pay check determines the date of the action, but the action is still the same: pay the bill. If its not actionable determine whether you want to keep the task or not. If you decide to keep it store it in a reference folder on cloud base platform like dropbox or google drive. Then set a reminder date to reopen the file when its actionable. If you decide there is no purpose to keep that document bin it.
Determine whether there are multiple steps
If there are multiple steps, something that may be consider a project. List all the required steps, do the task that take less than 2 minutes now and assign due dates for the rest of task on your to do app.

The tech industry really likes to . So what is it? Augmented reality (AR) is an enhanced view on current reality. What I mean by that is, if we were to look through an Augmented Reality enable glass or device, everyday objects wesee normally in real time, would be have extra information for example looking at street sign and getting details of the best restaurants on the street. Whilst the concept is it not new and has been shown in movies like Tron, Minority Report and anime such as Pokemon (The pokedex) and Dragon Ball Z (the scouter), it has finally come to big stage as Facebook announces its new open source platform.
Initially, many tech experts thought that the first AR device would be glasses, such as google glass, but it failed to reach the mass market. Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, believes the first AR device to “become mainstream” is smartphone cameras. The new platform will allow third party developers to experiment with the technology and create useful effects.
