I can't help but procrastinate, am I just lazy?Watch
I have 6 days left and it's as if my subconscious is telling me "It's fine, you have plenty of time to do that boring task, let's do something immediately fulfilling!". I set up at my desk today to get some more done, but I just couldn't be bothered to focus and was drifting into other things and ended up giving up. It makes me feel extremely guilty, and I know that I would feel good if I could at least get just a few hundred words down, but I just can't do it...I need pressure and it isn't there yet.
Am I just a lazy individual or is this understandable?
Just a small trick: break it down. Set a timer for 10 minutes and promise yourself a self nurturing reward at the end of it. So 10 minutes for the task, 10 minutes of fun. Wash, rinse and repeat until the task is over.
