ynnk8317dHow about anti-goals? :D Things you don’t want to accomplish. Works best for me when I set multiple of such goals :D
Okay try this. Don’t set a goal. Don’t call it a goal. There is one part of you that’s lazy or unmotivated. There is one part of you that wants to get shit done. This is always the case. There s no way around it.
Next time you wanna get something done, try setting a if you do this today, you get to do the other thing at the end of it. For eg, finish learning a couple of lessons today and you can go out and enjoy a coffee or a walk in the park. Make sure to follow through with both. Try setting easier goal-reward pairs initially. Doing this for just a few times will get you far. Give it a shot, nothing to lose.
M1sf3t35056dthink I've given up on goals entirely by this point, I just sorta pinball my way through things as they come up. I've got a gigantic wake of forgotten half-thoughts as a result 🤦🏻♂️
endor43316dIf you're setting goals that you have to force yourself to pursue, you're doing it backwards. Being a tyrant to yourself won't make you more productive, quite the opposite.
Set goals you *want* to acheive.
