Do nothing

If you’re having trouble getting started, try this: do nothing. Do absolutely nothing until you feel like starting.

No internet, no reading, no television, no talking. Sit down somewhere that isn’t too soft and do absolutely nothing. Perhaps a little music is fine if you’re not the type who gets into it too much, but that’s it.

If you’re anything like me, doing nothing when there’s something you need to do is hard. It’s easy to procrastinate when you’re doing all sorts of little things, but when you’re doing nothing? That’s just a waste. I bet you won’t do nothing for long.

Next time you’re having trouble starting, try it out. Just don’t employ this tactic if you’re sleepy. Then you’ll have a whole other problem entirely.
