I oftentimes find it pretty hard to find the motivation to finish the things I’ve started or to start some new things. The problem is not that I don’t want to do the work, but, I would start something and can’t find the motivation to finish it. Whether it is a simple project that I have started, or if it is something more serious like some business meeting.
I end up finding stupid excuses just so that I won’t do the thing that I am supposed to do, and I constantly reschedule it. I’ll do it tomorrow, no, I’ll do it later today… and so on and so forward. Even if it is just a simple walk or run outside, it’s either too hot or too cold for me to do it, or I can’t find my headphones etc. You know how it goes.
And I know exactly what the problem is. It is just too hard to end that simple cycle of constant procrastination. Have you ever found yourself thinking that you will do something productive and you end up on your 35th conspiracy theory video on YouTube? Well, I have, and I know that it’s bad for me, but I don’t seem to have the strengths to stop it.
And that wondering throughout the internet has brought me exactly to the place I needed to be. I found a couple of great ways to eliminate that procrastination that stops you from being the next Bill Gates or Einstein.
There are a couple of ways that you can eliminate the procrastination and self-motivate yourself to finish these jobs. I’m sure that you want to finish them, but oftentimes you feel too tired to do anything, and you just end up rescheduling them.
Create your Physical Routine
The first way is to create your physical routine that will prepare your brain for the work that follows or the running that follows, or whatever the thing that you’re trying to finish is. Put on the running shoes and the training clothes before running, that way you will feel ridiculous walking around in your house with those clothes doing this will prepare your brain that it is time for training or gym time, and you will actually feel hyped instead of tired. What I’m trying to say is to prepare a certain routine that you will do every time before the event you’re trying to finish.
Having your routine is not the only thing you need to do in order to eliminate the procrastination out of your life. I oftentimes end up looking up to the successful people, the best at the area I am trying to improve myself and I see this a lot of the times. They have their own routine, but that is not all, they also have a great life hack that helps them out to get even better than they already are. That life hack is, working harder to get better. If you want to get better in the area that you’re trying to improve on, then you must work harder and be prepared for everything that might meet you on your way to the top.
Keep to your routine and work harder. You’ll start seeing the results after just a couple of weeks. There are no elevators to the top, you have to take the stairs!
