End Procrastination (do Today what will feel good Tomorrow)
If the other End Procrastination post didn’t work for you (Abraham style), maybe this one will.
I listened to an audiocourse while on my walk, and unfortunately I don’t know which one it was (will update when I find out), but his way of ending procrastination was with this statement:
Do Today what will feel good Tomorrow
Meaning, what could you do today, that tomorrow you will feel happy about achieving?
What will make you feel better because you already did that task?
He also said to list down all the things you need to do, and write down one-thing next to each one that would spark “momentum” to complete the task.
But I like the Abraham-style post combined with this one – listing of the things that I need to do, and then writing the “reasons why” I want to do it, because I believe that will give me the most momentum to complete the task today.
Now with this new statement applied to each of my tasks, I believe I have all the tools I need to end procrastination.
- List all the things I need to do
- List the reasons “why” I “want” to do them and applying this new statement “what will make me feel good tomorrow” and adding that to the why
- Note what would give me momentum to start/complete the task
- Complete all the tasks that I need to do today.
- Feel good today and tomorrow
Coupled with my time-management momentum-builder of setting my alarm for 20mins to working solidly on ‘one thing’ for 20 minutes (without distractions) – then having a 5 minute break and doing it again, I think this will be a powerful way to achieve goals and tasks and end procrastination.
