The Problem: Procrastination. (Yes, we all do it.).
The Secret: Doing the project isn’t the real challenge, it’s getting started in the first place.
The Trick: A quick burst of effort on whatever you’re avoiding. The idea is to start small enough that you’ll actually do it. It’s ok if the amount of effort feels “ridiculously small”, especially if you’re really stuck.
Example: “I’m going to clean this room for one minute” or “I’m going to open the project and write one sentence.”
How it works: The longer you avoid doing something the bigger it gets inside your mind. Any progress that gets you started wipes away that feeling and gives you a fresh start. From there it’s easier to keep moving.
