    Maybe set yourself a day where you will get a lot done, with small, achievable goals. Then extend the time period/goals.

    This is an improvised plan and may have no success at all.

    You need to have a goal.

    Every time you see yourself being lazy, remind yourself of said goal.

    I don't mean like "this week i'll do the washing up". I mean like "in fifteen years i want to own my own law practice" or "in ten years i want to be a qualified doctor" or whatever.

    And there's only yourself that can make you stop being lazy. It's just a mindset. If you can stop thinking in the "oh i'll do it later, oh i can't be bothered, oh no it looks like so much work" mindset and "oh god damnit, i'm going to have to do it now " or even the "hmm, no biggie, i'll finish it" mindset, you'll be set for success.

    Well, unless you're an idiot, which generally harms you in life (not as much as being lazy though!).

    I always try to think of the future but then I think what's the point, I'll probably die in a few years time :dontknow:

    I'm pessimistic like that

    Laziness is a mindset, so try to break it. A few times randomly each day, say to yourself 'right now I'm going to do the opposite of whatever I usually do'. For example, you've just had an idea for something that you vaguely want to do but it's your habit to mentally push it aside; before you do, snap out of it and force yourself to get the thing done that exact instant. Or if you're walking along a road and one of your aims is to get fitter, then just start running the rest of the way, no excuses. Etc etc. Every time your brain meets some resistance, ignore your natural responses.

    Why on earth?? Because of the rush of fulfillment you get afterwards. Soon it'll be your habit to do little things you would usually not bother to, and the little things contribute to an overall drop in laziness! (I hope, or I've just been acting like a maniac for the past week :rolleyes: )

    Thing is in a weird way I'm not lazy at all, it's just that my goals are very dependent on trust. Like I dream of writing, I have all the impetus, and enthusiasm for it, but I don't want to waste years of my life writing and then get it plagiarised or not be savvy about the industry or whatever-get me? I have the feeling but am not good at the dealing with people, praticalities, and machiavellianism of the world.

    So you're actually just paranoid? :p:

    There are a huge number of laws and regulations that will stop others plagarizing your work

    Not paranoid, I'd say I've got a healthy suspicion of some of the more machiavellian and opportunist people out there. What laws?

    Sounds to me that you're just looking to make excuses for laziness :p:

    Patent laws, copyright laws, intellectual property laws? :woo:

    Realise that you are going to die soon, and if you don't do something worthwhile in your life, you may as well have not existed. Gets me through the day.

    Toruble is I missed out on youth being such an obsessive, you dont wanna just go along barely aware you exist, but then at the same time you get mired in pondering and you miss the train as it were.
