    Hello,

    I am pretty sure that almost everyone had or still have problems with laziness and excuses.

    For example, I have an effective way to earn big money, but when I try to make my project done, I always have to find some excuse to put the work off and come back later.

    My question is directed to people who have overcame these faults such as laziness and so on, so how have you overcame them?

    Greetings!

    #In addition, I would like to add that I am motivated ,but there is always some problems such as thinking that something is wrong or I need better conditions (better notebook, professional stuff) so I have not made this shit done as far :(

    Damned perfectionism :|

    what problems with laziness? i'm fine as i am, don't psycho-analyse me :p
    procrastination is your problem, you can challenge it by being very organised, keep a diary, to-do list etc. Pushing yourself is the only way to beat it. Works for me, when i can be arsed.

    sometimes I wonder if this is my problem or if it's just information overload. I think there is only 3000 different ways to do 1 thing.

    I've got to get my ass in gear for sure.

    brings me to a point. where the hell do I start :p

    Two things. First off, you need to commit yourself fully. That clearly hasn't happened yet as you have posted this thread. And the second thing I would recommend is to read this:

    just stick to one method
    dont work on 2 methods at a same time
    unless they both are inter related
    like when u do cpa just do cpa

    and one more thing
    even if u r motivated
    I think u dont have some reason to do it for
    like if u do it for yourself u would search for excuses and laziness will come
    exact word would be procrastination
    but when u do it for some1 else
    when u have some goal or aim
    that u HAVE to do this for some reason
    like some1 close to u
    then u will be fully motivated

    Been there & done that. When you feel like quiting or slacking off, look at someone's post who is making like $200 a day and that will motivate you.

    In your mind.
    Just drink a beer and come back later, oh what the hell just drink two more and do it in the afternoon. While you're at it why not rub one out to Pamella Anderson or Halle Berry. Now you can get to work feeling relaxed, but just before you start working you need to make some food because it's good to eat and work, but wait, after you eat you feel tired and take a nap, i can do this tomorrow i'll just not rub it out to anyone.

    Best kick starter seems to be support from people who understand, that's why you started this thread. ;)

    I have seen the first one.

    Thank you guys so much for all replies. I think that it is a high time to do the work now, not later. Ever if it needs a lot of devotions, I want to try to make it done. Wish you all the best!

    That sounds, without knowing you, like subconscious fear of failure.

    Nike has the answer - Just do it.

    Complete your project, let it fly or fail, and then start your next project.

    Another of my favorite sayings: Don't get it right - get it started.

    Don't sweat the small stuff. Make sure your bases are covered as seen from a BH perspective, and then just go execute your project.

    If you always wait until ALL conditions are right, then you'll never get anything done and you'll drown in nearly completed projects that does nothing but bug you down.

    Don't make excuses - either you pull the trigger or you don't.
    And if you decide not to (pull the trigger), get over it and move on -- don't get all dramatic about it.

    As far as the laziness thing is concerned, I think all of us (if we're honest with ourselves) have lazy days at times or weeks even. But if you blow off something you really need to do in your business, you have to accept the fallout --- which is either less money or worse, no money at all :eek:

    Having an online friend in the biz (where you both hold each other accountable) can be a big motivator ... especially if he or she starts doing better than you.

    Good to know I am a procrastinator now. Thought I was the only one with this condition.

    I am only motivated when I step out of the door and seeing crappy cars rolling around or peoples doing shitty jobs.

    Thatswhy i have bought a laptop so i look at the shit cars from a cafe and do my job.

    People are so happy when getting a 1000 bucks a month, still dont understand

    I bought a book a few years ago called "The Procrastinator's Guide To Success"

    I'm going to read it one day soon.
