In this my first post, I´m looking forward to find a cure for something that´s been poisoning my path towards acomplishing my goals: Procrastination.
When searching for an antidote for this poison, I came across an interesting article about it and I thought I would share it with you. Some of you might have this or other resources already, but it might provide some help for those who haven´t read this yet and who also have this problem in their lives.
I believe what the authors of the article say about overcoming procrastination is quite true. Although I´m willing to apply some or all of their advise, I think I´m looking for a (or several) quick antidote(s), that I can carry with me while I´m out there in the battle field, so I can use it to put me back in the right track. Therefore, I´d like to get some support/advise from the members of this forum, as to know how you deal with this problem. Hopefully I´ll start usiing some of this advise, before I leave this issue for later to deal with! LoL (See my problem?).
I have a theory of my own, as I´m trying to make this as simple as possible so that my brain can understand it and apply better:
"Procrastination comes from not feeling like or not wanting or to do something.
Then if I need to get something done, I must find a way to trick my mind so that I get motivated to invest the necessary effort in order to do it.
Therefore, motivation should beat procrastination."
That´s as far as I´ve made up my recipe. But I´m stuck in the next part, which is, how do you keep motivation during your whole day? or how can you make it handy so you can use it every time you have to do the next actions?
Any help, comments or even criticism would be greatly appreciated.
