One of the great bloggers, Dwayne Melancon has suggested a good technique to add fuel to your mind and help to achieve any difficult tasks. He suggested to make a belief in your mind which you must complete a set of tasks no matter what. For instance, make yourself believe that you will die if the project is not successful, and you pretend and act this is true and it will happen:
You will die if your project is not successful in 6 months.
- What will you do to ensure your don’t die?
- What things are you doing that put your project at risk? What are you going to do to stop those things?
- What actions will you take to increase the odds that you’ll be around in 6 months?
- Who will you ask for help to increase the chance you’ll make it?
An interesting idea – this technique should help on killing procrastination too.
