RE: Staying on track(another god damnit duke thread)
I've found that the best solution to a stress-free life that is not impacted in any way by tendencies to procrastinate is...

Have no goals.

When I'm nearing the time to pop my clogs, I'll be able to look back on my life knowing that I'd achieved everything I set out to achieve.

So I have so many goals I want to achive and I have all planned out but I am missing something. I don't know how to get motivated. Even when I am motivated, it is only halfway. Add to that it takes me forever to do something as when I start I walk around or doing something else. Hell right now my mouse is floating over TF2 while I need to type something up. So what is the best solution to stop this? Do I take drugs that calm me down, or do I have someone hold a weapon to my back and everytime I fuck up they use it? I have no idea.

well our lives are similar to you being synapsids and I being the dinosaurs. I have a life to live and I need and want things. now that I have a job (though I still struggle to believe it is one) I am steps closer to moving so I have some goals.

No worries mate. As far as I'm concerned, you've not pissed anybody off. Smile

Motivation? Hmmm... difficult issue from my personal point of view. I'm chronically under-motivated, although I've been on long-term medication for depression and generalised anxiety disorder which could have something to do with it; dunno. Can I ask if you're on any medication? (And please don't answer if you're uncomfortable telling us.) It's well-known that certain medications can have a paradoxical effect; that is, they can exacerbate the condition they're intended to alleviate.

A lot of people claim that they've responded favourably to CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy). CBT changes the way we initially perceive stuff, and can change the way we respond—by retraining our subconscious rationalisations. As Dr Phil says, it's like "changing the tapes in our brain that play automatically".

I do think motivation has to be "learned"; it's not necessarily spontaneous, and it's all too easy to put stuff off and take the easy path on the day.

RE: Staying on track(another god damnit duke thread)
Getting excited about things is a way to ward off procrastination. Trouble is when you get excited about things that will not further your goals.

You like biology, no?

Can you keep being excited about that?

The trick to success is to find something that excites you AND provides a path to your goals.
