Yes thinking of getting rich helps primarily, but this technique also helps
Whenever thinking about a task, count from "5....4....3....2....1" and just jump away from whatever situation you are in, like talking to colleagues, flirting with someone, PM talking too much, etc . And just get to your work bench and finish it l, it will end up faster.
P.S. I just assumed the above scenarios, don't get offended.
owithg22144y@sam9669 hope I understood correctly, but are you saying just focus on work after 5 seconds of distraction? That works too :)
I was more meaning I guilt myself into doing things, because not helping humanity is the same as actively harming it. So I need to get rich, which means working hard. Then I need to throw my money at problems in ways that actually solve them. Wasted time could literally be lives lost!
@owithg well I should say, that's global level thinking, which brings back the focus on building the right things at this very moment due to subsequently followed logically build steps, and every achievement/success story is a path of many such small steps, these small steps can be tempting at times like "why am I doing this shit" kind, so your thinking makes you work harder and mine just supports it at small tasks finishing, which are the small steps required to achieve a greater goal :)
after all its just about sitting in front of the task in the first place, which can get disturbed at times, so the 5 count method.
So I will just leave it at this, both of our techniques help, I just wanted to contribute to this thread, it may actually help someone.
What works for me is looking at my wallet. To be more accurate, looking at how empty my wallet is.
