    How to trick your brain when you are procrastinating bad! - Dojo Muscle

    Do you procrastinate?
    I know I do, and have done, and probably will do again in the future at some point.

    But right now I am pretty locked and loaded, ready to rock. Laser focused.
    Sharks with laser beams….. (ok that was an austin powers joke and my age is showing…)

    Here is a trick I learned about a month or so ago (and I can not remember where I learned it from or I will cite it)

    So most people (especially people with creative minds) do one thing really good.

    They create scenarios that never come to pass in their minds. It’s been said most martial artists train their whole life for a fight that never happens.

    When you have something big to do. Or not even if it’s big. Just something important to do.

    We have a tendency to push it off and create a sense of stress around it.

    Instead of getting at it right away, we let it linger. And fester.

    And this is how we continue to build up resistance around it, causing more stress.

    So here is my trick. You trick your brain.

    When you hear about the thing you need to do.

    I mean like the moment you get off the phone, or you close your email after reading it.

    Sit down. Take 30 seconds. That is it. 30 seconds. A half a minute. You can do anything for 30 seconds.

    Take that 30 seconds and write down in a pad, 1 sentence, on WHAT you are going to do or need to do for that project to come to a completion.

    Then close the book.

    That is it!

    You have just stared the ball in motion.

    You have broken the inertia of resistance in 30 seconds.

    From that point on getting to work certainly won’t be as difficult.

    It WORKS!

    So if you have to do anything just sit down and write 1 sentence for 30 seconds on what you will do.

    You’d be surprised how much you can accomplish this way.

    Take it from me I wasn’t always focused, matter of fact because I am a creative my brain will go in 27 different directions at once, awesome video, wow that’s a unicorn, omg that chipotle is calling me, did i walk the dog?

    Have we placed orders? grrrr.

    1 sentence, 30 seconds. GO.

    Let me know how it works for you!
