Stalling, procrastinating, coming up with excuses why you should not get to work. “I just wanna check my email for 5 minutes, I swear”, and before you know it an hour has passed. Watching Youtube videos, reading your favorite blogs, sitting on Facebook. It is so easy to become distracted on the internet.
Resist the temptation of procrastinating.
Motivate yourself with the goal of achieving something.
Sit down and get to work.
Focus and dedicated your attention to your work for a few hours.
Rinse, wash and repeat.
the question is... does this apply to periods when everybody's preoccupied with a lot of things (read: christmas shopping) other than work? hehehehe! misa de gallo has already started, today's the second night, but still... a lot of writing and reviewing to do. hard to get started and focused when you still haven't figured out what kinds of presents to buy since the usual list has not been done at all. of course, most if not all peeps are only focused on christmas parties, making the almost nightly troop to the malls or scouring the best tiangges in town. aside from the idc ph xmas dinner, i haven't been going to the malls yet! tomorrow, we still have the last of our annual kris kringle idc ph style - something paradoxical! and guess what, i still don't have any idea on what to buy... i really need to get it going tonight.
