I Procrastinate for 3 Hours Before Starting Work. Here’s How I Solved the Problem. - Deepstash
Beat Procrastination
  • By having zero expectations, you can beat procrastination. The mere thought of beginning work causes resistance. Instead of starting work, you're training yourself to reach a norm. When the job quality expectations are too high, it takes longer to get started.
  • Low-quality work is simple to start.
  • High-quality work feels like preparing for a two-day marathon.
  • Accelerate your Flow state to Level Up.

At the end of your job, have an event

An event at the end of your shift encourages you to reconsider how much time you have. When time is limited, procrastination is not an option. Make a date on your calendar to give yourself inspiration and a sense of urgency to finish.

Humans love treats. Reward yourself for completing your task. Know what it is ahead of time. Make a commitment to it. Then remind yourself you won't get the reward until you finish the job. When you're working, visualise the reward.

Think of flow states as energy you spend
  • Flow states create energy that transcends you.
  • You can do your work in a flow state, and your work adds energy to the universe. People are motivated to take action when they are surrounded by energy. Life is propelled forward by energy. The energy of one person ignites the energy of another.

  • Flow is beautiful to watch, called as flow state tourism.
  • When you see others in flow, you have the proof you need to improve your own flow condition.
  • It's all in your mind to get into a flow state. All you have to do is act as if you aren't starting work.
