Motivating myself to do work Watch
I have a lot of deadlines this week. Every time I sit down to start the work, I can’t motivate myself to do it. I’ve tried to turn my phone and iPad off, music, no music, library. How do I trick myself into working ?
Have you tried to imagine how horrible you will feel (your future self) if you reach that deadline without having the assignment ready?
Do you feel connected to your future self, as a person? Do you want your future self to experience pain and disappointment for example?
the concept of future self can be used for starting any improving behaviour e.g. gym, better diet etc
doesnt matter what things you make yourself do to stop distractions, it wont work if you dont care. if you care about something and want to do it, there are no distractions
