Write it down

Instead of describing the things you want to do or the places you want to go, you’re going to describe what you actually do with your time.

Keep a diary of your activities. Make an entry in your time diary at least once every 30 minutes, and keep this up for at least a week. It forces you to see what you're actually doing and what you're not doing.

Discipline yourself to look neither forward nor backward and you can accomplish things you never thought you could possibly do.

Two types of people
  • Those that can start things, but have trouble completing it.
  • Those that can finish things, but have difficulty starting.

You probably have a bigger problem with one or the other, even if you feel like you face both these situations.

Remind yourself of items that don’t bring you joy, and contribute very little to your long-term goals.

This way, you’re unlikely to spend a lot of time doing time-sucking, non-rewarding work, freeing you up to do the work that does make you happy in the long run.
