Relying on motivation, inspiration, being energized, or any other fleeting emotion will not sustain you and not deliver the results that you desire.
It’s the system that delivers the results.
You must first objectively examine your own habits and systems to figure out in what ways you can optimize most effectively.
You can keep a journal or open up a note on your phone and jot down what you are doing and how you’re feeling over the course of a day.
Doing this for a couple days will give you a better view of your current systems and pain points.
Here are some ways to implement it:
When you say “I have to study for my midterm, BUT I’m tired and I don’t feel like studying”, you’re limiting your potential options of action.
However, when you say “I have to study for my midterm AND I don’t feel like studying”, you have two separate phrases and the second one doesn’t negate the first.
