It feels good and makes you look awesome.
I think the key is this:
“Just do it” attitude + Awareness
I have the just do it attitude. It came from years of realizing the pain of procrastinating is not worth the enjoyment of the moment. And there can be enjoyment while doing work (especially when it is work related to your interests and personal goals). Once you get emotionally driven by your goals
- you’ve overcome the biggest hurdle.
Now, I need to have awareness. Sometimes you just drift off and oh, look where the time went!! I need to increase my awareness…

It took me two hours to solve an issue I’d been postponing since last week. Yet I’m aware all this time some part of the day was dedicated to mentally analyze parts of the problem and visualize solutions. When I sat down to code everything was basically done already in my mind. Need to find a way to focus long enough so this process won’t take this long but I can do it in one sit. 21 months ago

You could put sub goals that are part of your reg goals under your long-term goals so that once you check all those off the big goal is gone. I guess I can just proactively set up an entry under the goal that suits that purpose… 23 months ago
I reordered my 43 things according to what I wanted to accomplish today, daily goals, and long term goals. My motivation is at the top: be shockingly productive. Seeing this as number one actually excites me because it’s why I have goals. I want to accomplish certain things and I want to do so in a timely manner because, to be honest, doing so is fun. 23 months ago
Ever since I read Cheaper By the Dozen, I have really wanted to maximize my time and get things done faster. That’s what I want for myself. There was a while when my day was tightly scheduled that I managed to stay on track—then get ahead of schedule. It’s a great feeling to lean back and realize you have seriously handled business. The trick was multitasking and truly using your intelligence to analyze the task, how you do it, and how you can be more efficent on a daily basis. Then, it gets easier and easier. 23 months ago
