Been doing this Keto diet and today was a cheat day. So, had a huge stack of pancakes for breakfast… and my body is reeling. You know when you’re laying down and your arms feel like they weigh 100o lbs?
Anyway, got me thinking about this tweet:
When you procrastinate, you are focusing too much on the big tasks.
Focus on the small tasks & build up.
Ex: instead of focusing on getting the entire blog done, do 1 paragraph.
You will strangely want to complete another paragraph…

I’d retweeted it and said:
1000% true. This is basically the single way I handle procrastination. Just get started with *something*. Once you get rolling, it snowballs. https://t.co/2tuM5GDtnw

Used it again this morning to get this email out.
I thought, “Okay, just figure what you wanna talk about”.
Just do that one little step.
Now, here I am typing this whole thing out.
Same with web dev projects.
Don’t think about everything you have to do. Just look at the list of things left to do and find one you think you can get done in 5 minutes and do that. By the time you get done with it, you’ll “strangely” want to keep going.
Before you know it…
It’s three hours later and you’ve got half your list done.
And, it’s works over and over and over.
Almost 10 years now for me.
Anyhoo, use that as you will.
Of course, if learning how to code and how to freelance is one of the things on your list, I can give you an assist. You can get access to my entire curriculum of web development and freelancing courses for nothing over on SkillShare.
So, you don’t have to waste time figuring out WHAT learn.
It’s all there.
Anyway, details on all that are here: https://www.skillshare.com/r/user/johnmorris
