Just start

A quick trick to help you stop procrastinating:

Just Start

Starting is half the battle. Many times you will find that once you start it is easy to continue.

You can apply this to writing as follows: Allow yourself to write garbage. Write a terrible first draft. Second draft. Tenth draft. Just start and just keep on writing.

I am terrible at taking my own advice: this article took me a whole day to write.

If you integrate this into habits, do not try to run 5 km every day, or work the whole day. Just start. Allow yourself to stop if you have tried it for a short time. (Don’t use a time period less than 5 minutes though). Overcome the action threshold and build your dream life.

To happiness, and beyond!
