“In the absence of clearly-defined goals,
we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia
until ultimately we become enslaved by it.”
― Robert A. Heinlein
Procrastinate? Is that really what it is? What if the problem was easier to correct and just required some imagination and forward thinking?
Think about your last vacation. What did you do weeks prior to leaving? You most likely organized and planned what needed to be completed, so vacation would happen without any work issues.
Did it work? Probably did.
Try doing this for the bigger things in life. Where do you want to be for your job in 5, 10, 20 years. What about after you finish school, or retirement. You need to sit and envision it and then write down what success looks like.
Finally, make a list of tasks to move each thing forward a bit and then repeat that each week until you reach it.
