Note on progress

over 3 years ago in Inspire by matt

Note to self, on making progress and staying in good better mental shape,

I notice this pattern constantly. When I am in the zone everything looks bright. The tasks at hand are clear and the overall direction is very well defined. However, when I’m out of it distracted by life I find it hard to get motivated and keep on progressing. I know that having a routine and a clear mind is a key to succeeding, yet sometimes I will fail and hinder my progress procrastinating anyway.

I think I might have found the pattern to deal against such wasteful behaviour. It will apply best to a blend of types:
-disorganized,
-self-teacher,
-having interwining episodes of mild depression and productivity,
-knowing and wanting to do better but struggling,
-fighting but being less motivated every day

Whenever you’re in a good mental shape, working on developing anything you are into but have trouble with being consistent on a regular basis, plan out the following:
-when to initiate next session of the same type
-what tasks to perform during this session

Write down the specifics. Make the instructions as clear as possible understanding that you may be dealing with a troubled mind later on. Then, when the time comes, no matter what and if you’re physically able, follow the note.

This note you make in the past is the note from the future. Your bright side is more evolved, more keen on developing, farther ahead. The other part lags behind. It slows you down. It needs direction and when directed it may improve.

Either way, there you go. DIY of time travel, it’s possible.
