    I have this problem for many years.

    I tried to listening into binaular beats, it still wont help.

    I keep postponing my task day by day.

    Worse, I had ADHD too.

    Same with me. It feels like my job (content writing) is getting boring and not attractive to me. :/ Have you thought, that it might be that you're just not motivated as you see no deeper sense or lust to do the work you do now?

    I'm ADD and the answer is simple, turn the switch and just DO. Don't post things here why this why that, just do it!! Doesn't matter what but start!!

    Don't go on YT, FB all that kind of shit unless you need to be there for business, stop these BS excuses I'm ADHD, stop looking for things to use as excuses, just start doing before I come visit you and kick your ass!

    I just posted this on one of my IG.

    Creating "motivation" for all the taks, also simplest ones, as they are very important in some way and all depends on them.

    A lot of coffee too.

    Motivation is shi* if you are a procrastinator. You got to build will power and discipline. The only way to do that is by doing everyday day in and day out. It is like a muscle you need to build everyday.

    Get a White Board - Outline your routine out - Check them on completion daily.

    I feel accomplished daily following this method

    Hire a coach. Not a cookie cutter, one that will hold your feet to the fire.

    Start discipline your self.
    Cold showers
    Working out
    Work Hard
    And most importantly, i want you to sit down and visualize where you will be in 2 years 5 years or more if you keep procrastinating. Think about what you want to do and start doing that immediately, you must have self discipline.. every time you procrastinate cut a reward from your day ( don't masturbate or eat that burger or do cold shower for 10 minutes or put 5 dollars somewhere and if you procrastinate for 10 times you are going to give this money to poor people ;)

    Yea ADHD can be a bitch, but it's also a gift at the same time, imo.

    I just follow this simple sentence:

    Just start. Do it. NOW.

    I truly believe I am the laziest person on the world (my mother thinks so too) and I always felt bad about it

    But, when I looked around, I am the most successful one of people I know

    So, I believe if I were a discipline hardworker, I wouldnt have looked for better, easier, new ways to make money and to live the life I want.

    Best ideas I came with was because trying to avoid hard and daunting work :D

    So, now looking where I am, I believe its a bless and it served me well. I learnt to co-live and accept it

    I have been following you since your first posts, so, I know you are doing Okay too and better than most.

    So, instead of worrying about being lazy, praise it and enjoy it... Money is a mean, not an end. So, as long as you are happy, why caring about tiny stuff

    Work super early, finish by late afternoon. Rince and repeat. Xbox time is for after work hours. I wake up at 6am and spend time with the kid, start working by 7am.

    Work like a beast without breaks and end up finishing by around 3/4pm. Crack on the Xbox, embarrass some fifa players by making them disconnect, then dinner and family time.

    My approach to this is as SOON as you get something you need to do. DO IT.

    Let me ellaborate here.. Not just say "I will do it" but go RIGHT NOW AND DO IT. Its going to annoy you, and have thinking "Jeez I really hate doing this right now, I prefer watch cat videos instead" ignore that thought and keep going at whatever you need to do a the moment. Eventually you will be done with the task and you will feel proud of yourself that you followed through.

    Im talking form experience here... Someone says "Hey id love to and climb that mountain" but if im the on saying that AND I REALLY WANT TO CLIMB THE FRIKN MOUNTAIN then instead of saying it. You will hear me saying it and im already halfway climbing the mountain lol.

    It takes you out of your comfort zone everytime I swear, but thats the only way I know how to do it. Instead of "BS talking about methods" "Mental attitude BS"

    Just fucking DO IT.

    PS: Now that I think off.. Nike got it right with this one lol

    I too have this problem. I lost my motivation to study hard and get good marks. I have great capabilities to achieve what I want but laziness or I don't know what is pushing me off. This happening not only college but almost anything I try to get my hands on it like IM or programming...
    People help us!!!

    You need to find something to fight for... Something that really annoys or bugs you so much that you just cant let it go.

    Wake up burning inside to start going at it again.. Once you find it dont let it go, I was trying a lot of different shit until I fugred what I wanted and started looking on my options to achieve it.
