How to overcome laziness or stop procrastinating until tomorrow (Paintist’s Diaries, February 3, 2021)
Aren’t you tired of constantly putting things on the back burner? It seems that you are not a lazy person, but all the time you do not have time or do not want to do what you have been planning for a long time. I would just start, and then it will go by itself.
We all face this problem, almost every day. Someone is looking for an article on the Internet that will help, enroll in courses, visit a psychologist, but cannot finally say goodbye to an old friend.
So what is the secret of success? Is there a miracle cure? Laziness is a normal human condition, but I’m not going to tell you about the origin of this condition, which many call an illness. This vice is based on one rule: “What is the use of it?” or “Doesn’t that wait?”
I will no longer torment you, in any book or article a simple attempt is a miraculous remedy because once you start, the laziness will go away. Some advice watching a motivational video or movie that will automatically lift your inner spirit. But I will say that sometimes it is enough for me to go from the opposite direction. Do what you didn’t intend to do, some trifle or stupidity, stir yourself up, knock yourself out of your comfort zone, and then it’s up to you whether to fall back into a state of indifference or take the risk and shake off the dust from the old chest of drawers.
