That’s right, after 3.5 years of inactivity this blog lives again.
Such a long delay…but overcoming procrastination is Hard. To that end, some tricks that have helped me:
Do the smallest possible task
Start small and change 1 line of code. Wash 1 dish. Think about 1 thing. Almost always this snowballs into other tasks.
Obviously, right? But getting there is only half the trouble. Getting into flow is tricky and distractions are the mindkiller. F5'ing hackernews won’t get anything finished.
Visualize completing the task
Aaah the sweetest feeling. Completing something, no matter how small, is a morale boost. Small increments lead to big changes.
