This is currently what I’m staring at (or at least, before I decided to snap a screenshot and procrastinate by writing this blog post on how to not procrastinate…whatever). I just read a post on Zen Habits about procrastination, and it was some of the best advice I’ve ever read. For someone who suffers from such extreme procrastination as I do, it was mind-bending and awesome, a rush of motivation and energy just at the thought of its impact. Here’s the notable stuff:
Identify the most important thing you have to do today.Decide to do just the first little part of it — just the first minute, or even 30 seconds of it. Getting started is the only thing in the world that matters.
Clear away distractions. Turn everything off. Close all programs. There should just be you, and your task.
Sit there, and focus on getting started. Not doing the whole task, just starting.
…Get started, and the rest will flow.
That’s all I got, gonna go try this method now.
