Use Time To Your Advantage

Manipulators often expect immediate answers, to maximize their pressure and control over you in the situation. Don’t answer right away and use time to your advantage by saying you will think about it.

Take the time you need to evaluate the pros and cons of a situation, and consider whether you want to negotiate or just saying “no.”

Procrastination is a self-destructive tendency

Chronic sufferers engage in this irrational habit, fully aware of its harmful effects, even though postponing their to-do lists compounds the problem. Nevertheless, the mind latches onto the short-term relief that procrastination offers. That fleeting but addictive relief can feel rewarding, prompting the brain to search for a further release and triggering a negative, sometimes chronic, cycle of procrastination that is difficult to break.

Burnout

Overwork can lead to exhaustion. When you run out of energy, it’s easy to lose sight of why you were doing something and that can rob you of motivation.

Take a break and once you feel refreshed, make a list of personal goals for the year. Then write three reasons why you should do a specific work now. Keep these notes behind your eyes and take a look at them every time you need a snitch.
