Sometimes it is important to implement using "Reverse Psychology" on yourself or others. I was in the emotional state of dreading that I was overwhelmed of feeling lazy and not energized. At first, I wanted to feel sad for my challenge. Following sadness, I became a bit stress because I wasn't getting things done in proper timing. Then I said enough with it. What am I missing besides getting my butt up and taking action. Why am I tiresome from a full day of doing nothing?
That was the question that led me to the massive internet of answers. I read that usually the smartest people are the laziest ones. Talk about a good way to making me feel a bit better about myself. I also read an interesting response out of many to take the bull by the horns.
#1 Give Yourself A "Lazy Reward"
What this simply mean is to tell yourself that, "If I do this work, I get to be lazy."
Now let's not just tell yourself what you want to do after doing what you need to do. Let's jot down a plan of your "Lazy Rewards" and your "Anti-Lazy Duties."
My Lazy Rewards
*Sleep More/Sleep Late
*Spend All Day with Ray
*Read a Fiction Novel (James Patterson to be exact)
*Take a Day Off From Work
*Dance/Listen to Music
*Go to the Movie Theater
*Get a Massage
*Have a Good Cry
*Visit a Fair, Theme Park, Exhibition, or Museum
My Anti-Lazy Duties
*Make Business Calls
*Network & Socialize
*Volunteer/ Get Involved in Community
*Spend Time w/ Family & Friends
*Personal Growth/ Read/ Seminars
*Attend Team Meetings
It is important to not become overwhelmed with much work as it is becoming overwhelmed with laziness. By becoming effective at time management, you must learn to leverage others to get tasks done. Surely if you was to run a business, you wouldn't take on every field in the company. You would hire people to do what they do best for you so you can do what you do best. The same goes for your daily activities. In most cases, people are overwhelmed at how much they have to get done that they tend to not do anything at all.
#3 Being Productive to Avoid Doing Something
I've also read that in order for people to avoid doing something difficult, they do a bunch of other things instead which is known as "Structured Procrastination." A lot of those other things may be just as important as the main task, so it may seem that a person is productive. There is even psychology behind this as well. If for sure you've known to take on the "Other Tasks" at hand before the most important, all the other tasks will be completed. Sure enough you will have more important duties to come up at the top of your list pushing your previous most important task down the list which becomes one of the "Other Tasks."
(I hope I did not confuse you.)
So basically all I've really done is become educated on my weakness of laziness as one would of an existing medical condition.
