If you feel stuck, bored or just plain lazy, you might be waiting for inspiration to strike. But what if it doesn’t?
You might think you need more discipline or willpower. But even the most disciplined people procrastinate on the things they need to do. And willpower is finite. The more you use it, the less you have on a given day.
5 steps to reset and start fresh –
1) Acknowledge what you control and don’t control.
2) Figure out what you really want.
3) Remove obstacles that take up mental bandwidth and drain your energy.
4) Take one small action.
5) Set artificial deadlines.
