Don't Put it Off: Procrastination
Don't Put it Off:
Types of fear
Fear of failure
"I don't know enough about that!"
"Why did I agree to this?"
"I'm going to screw this up
Fear of success
Setting up for a Peter Principle downfall
Lead to incompetence
Fear of incompetence
Fear of outcome
"Will that mole need treatment?"
"Will signing up at that gym yield the results we want?"
Externalize the fear (talk to people)
Reemeber the reason you are chosen
Remember the reason it was initiated
While the idea is in your head, it will remain perfect and immune from criticism.
Done is better than perfect.
Difficulty getting started
Are there parts of the projects that you can pursue
"plenty of time" is fatal
"I haven't done enough research."
"I just need to do one more thing before I start."
"I've got plenty of time."
Lack of Motivations
Remember the motives
Have a personal connection to the task's relevance
Shut up your phone etc.
If you are not totally invested in what you are doing, you may be prone to actively seek distraction.
