Your Strategies against lazyness?





Ioana
In for example situations like having a lot of work to do but not a real final date... just wanting to finish within some weeks/months. What do you do against thinking every day, that today is not the real day to start over again. Even if your work may be interesting once you really get into it?

Everybody is asked post his personal strategy.

Thank you!

normally i blast hard trance into my ears, and that kinda numbs my brain for awhile...and then i can concentrate fully afterwards.

you can increase the effect with red bull and coffee =)

also a calendar is very useful with everything planned out like 2 weeks b4 the deadline.

While I was at school I used to leave everything too the last minute and get up really in the monring or do my work on the bus to school. But it used to give me alot of worry about not getting it done on time etc and the work was sloppy. Now I try and do everything as soon as i'm told what to do, so once it's done I don't have to worry about looming deadlines etc.

To combat the laziness just think of all the stress and hassle you won't have if you do the work asap.

Well, here in brazil they sell a amazonian fruit called guarana, it gives you lots of energy...Some people say that it increases you sexual appetite too, but most people use that to keep disposed to work or partys...
It΄s natural and really works.

Good strategy, that's also what I do.

When I have to do projects and sometimes get lazy, what I normally do is just to sit infront of my PC, put on my big headset and just listen to my MP3 archives..(with loud speakers set into max volume).. in that way I can stay alert even if I'm working midnight till dawn! Idea

That was my problem today. I had about 4 hours of programming to do today, I started about 9am, but there was many things... breakfast, dinner, phone call, soccer match on tv, blah blah... I've finished it at 10:30pm. Blah.

Humans are lazy. For those who aren't, they figured out a way not to. It's as simple as that.
onyx
heh well i don't have any strategie. If i did i'd prolly make a lot more then i do now Smile But I am soooooo lazy. If i figure something out I'll post it here Very Happy

My stratergy against being lazy is that usually I'm too lazy to put it off. Or promise myself not to eat until I've started it. Or ask someone to kill me if I don't. j/k.
goutha
Simple... at the moment you feel lazy... just stand up... and walk... walk... jump... do something to wake up your brain!
skygaia
It is very difficult for me to fight against my lazyness.
But I have to do that. So I would like to make a schedule a day.
I mean I'm trying to set a goal everyday and chek it out frequently.
Then, I can find out how i am lazy.
That makes me encourage ^^

But it's still difficult ...

im terrible... i have all these things that need doin i dnt knwo where to start so i dnt end up starting anywhere haha!

I know this problem all right, I am a bit the same. Thats why when I'm a bit lazy what I do is;

a) Drink Coffee and Energy Drinks (Guru, Monster & Red Bull, Sometimes I also try a shot of Hype) that keeps me awake and concentrated.

b) Music, Don't know why but it works.

Thats really all, But I look forward to try some of the tips other Frihosters have posted.

I refer to Anne Frank's quote when I'm feeling lazy, yet have plenty to do:

"Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction. "

Money motovates me Very Happy If i know im getting payed for doing somthing I always seem to compleate it faster....

Personally I have found that if I leave myself just enough time to get something done then it will be as good as i can make it and I will work effectively on whatever it is. Of course everyone works at different speeds so you need to a) have enough to do so that you always have something to do and b) learn how long it takes you to get things done.
Wynand
You only need to think about the ample time you will be having left once you have completed your work.

Just think this: The stress will be gone once the work is done and you can go on and do something else.

i basically follow two famous quotes
first one is "laziness is our biggest enemy"

the second is "we must learn to love our enemies"

I try to put things into perspective as far as what I need to accomplish
then I realize that nothing matters and I take a nap :(

I get enough done to survive though.... anything else is a tough one for me.

If you think you have too much to do and end doing nothing -- like me -- then you might need to make life simpler.

I recommend this book: 30 Days to a Simpler Life by [/i]Connie Cox & Cris Evatt.

Once you have a simple life, you may find it's easy to do what you like to do or you need to do.

Good luck!
kazza
hehe...I'm too lazy to read that book!

Anways, to stop my laziness...I create an illusion of fear. maybe, fear of what will happen if I don't do my work now. I guess people are different and don't necessarily agree with what I say. It's how u use fear that matters. But I thrive on it! I use it to create something.

Another way to stop my laziness is to do my work at uni. That way, I have fast internet connection and can get things done quickly. I'll also want to work faster because I just want to get out of the place before it starts getting dark - which is what I fear....

Um... I personally work when I know the thing is 'hard' and 'needs time'.

When it's just an extremely small homework (or work, in your case), I just cram it when the time is needed.

Here's two very good ways to combat laziness or procrastination.


1) Write down your goals

What i mean by this is, write down why you need to be doing what you have to be doing. Why are you trying to finish this project or assignment? is it because you want to get good grades? If so, write down WHY you want good grades.

Example would be

"I want to get good grades so my mom will give me 200 bucks for christmas"

"I want to finish this job assignment fast so my boss will like and give me a raise."

"I want to goto the gym so that I can have a fit body for the summer & the beach."

Then, tape this onto your mirror in your bathroom, or somewhere that you'll see it near the beginning of your day. Keep reminding yourself of your goals is key.


2) Write down the steps needed to achieve your goal.

Alot of people have said this one already, basically schedule yourself. Do it in an as detailed manner as possible without wasting time on stupid things like "1:00 - 1:05 pm washroom break".

You want to quantify your time as much as possible so that you know if you don't do that task RIGHT NOW, you're not going to have time to do it the next day, or you will have time to do it the next day but it'll be much crappier work.

This is important, schedule in your entertainment time as well, so many times, we just get stuck on the internet for 5 hours and then not even realize it. If you give yourself deadlines all the time, and you use your goals to keep yourself motivated to keep to them, then you'll find yourself finishing stuff ALOT sooner than if you left it last minute.

Not only that, the quality of work will be much higher, and by such, your quality of life will hopefully increase as well.
