  1. You procrastinate on some task.
  2. You wait for an inspirational spark.
  3. Time passes, and you've got nuthin'.

What are you thinkin''!

Most peeps think completing big projects takes:

  1. comprehensive planning
  2. compiling all necessary resources
  3. setting aside a huge chunk of time

And so, we human people avoid working on our super important stuff -- killing productivity.

Hint: Your brain's tricking you.

Here's how to trick it back. What We Underestimate

We underestimate the power of 30 seconds.

We underestimate how a ridiculously-tiny-amount-of-time can make us much/much/much more productive.

In 30 seconds:

  1. You'll make some mean project your best friend.
  2. You'll get your juices flowing to annihilate the project.
  3. You'll propel yourself beyond those 30 seconds kicking some project's boot-tay.

In other words:

  1. The first 30 seconds will turn into a minute.
  2. That minute will turn into several more minutes.
  3. Those several-more-minutes will turn into _ minutes/hours/days of productive work.

Being super productive just takes a tiny spark.

No-Mo-Procrastino

The cure to procrastination:

  1. Take out a stop watch.
  2. Take 30 seconds to cut into a project/task/goal.
  3. Celebrate.

You've geared yourself produce gobs of productive work beyond those first thirty ticks.

  • Avoiding an important email? Produce something/anything in 30 secs. Ignore quality.
  • Avoiding your taxes? Take 30 secs.
  • Avoiding a monthly project? Take 30 secs.

Booyah. Winner.

30 seconds.
