Focus on the End Result
Think about how you’ll feel when you’re done. According to Peterson, you should stop procrastinating by asking yourself questions like: “Once your project is complete, what does it look like? What results have been achieved? How has that impacted your life? What other areas of your life have been impacted as a result of completing this project?”
Consider the weight-loss example. “If you lose 25 or 50 pounds, not only will you feel better, but you will have more energy; your self esteem will soar and you will be looked upon as an inspiration for family and co workers,” she adds. Ain’t that a pretty picture to hang over our mind-wall?
