3 tricks to start working despite not feeling like it

There are times when it is not good to start something, such as 'I'm not ready to start things,' 'I don't think my job is going to work well,' or 'I don't feel motivated.' However, when you start something, you don't always have to feel 'let's start something.'

The key to starting something is actually starting to act. For that reason, deprocrastination recommends the phrase ' Screw It, Let's Do It ', which was a quote of billionaire Sir Richard Branson and the title of his book.

The lesson is clear: it's important to ignore all doubts, fears, and denials and try 'it doesn't matter.' Deprocrastination is a 'simple but effective word' that it is important to approach rather than avoid something.

◆ 2: Sloppy start

For example, when starting a project with the goals of 'writing a book', 'starting a business', 'creating art', people say 'I want to write a great book', 'I want to create a great business', 'I want to make a great art'. I think. But these high expectations are also under great pressure. And when you can't stand the pressure, people procrastinate and avoid what they need to do.

Therefore, deprocrastination recommends that you take a sloppy start. For example, in the case of 'creating a poster', instead of using the latest illustration software on a PC to draw a draft of the poster, the design is started by hand with the pencil. It is important to start making prototypes that you will never show to others, even if they are of low quality.

The deprocrastination says, 'If you know you don't need to make the best from the start, you can easily get things started, and it's easier to continue.' Explains the benefits.

◆ 3: small start

For example, when creating a presentation, you should not bother to create 20 slides for 2 hours. You should not be tempted to write a dissertation on a subject that you barely know. Despite not exercising too much, you should not be afraid to run a full marathon.

However, if you are looking at a few photos and articles for a presentation, you should be able to do without any problems. You may not be tempted to write your dissertation at once, but if you write one or two paragraphs during lunch break, you should be able to do it without problems. In addition, even if you can't do a full marathon, if you walk for 5km, you'll feel like 'try it for now'.

Breaking up such a grand project into smaller steps seems to be an effective way to eventually complete a long journey. In addition, by completing the steps that have been subdivided one by one, 'the motivation, the momentum, and the vibrancy will increase.'
