You can try to plan procrastination when you meet a big project, and record your self-statement, these statements may be your old pattern.
RESILIENCE AND HARDINESS
Resilience is very important when you fail, every time you fail you can bounce back from it and know your performance isn’t your self-worth, but your performance is connected to your perseverance. You don’t need to be responsible for what had happened to you, but you need to be responsible for how to tackle these problems. Sarah’s experience told us that you will meet some obstacles placed by others, but you don’t need to put these pressure on yourself, you just need to set a time for yourself and see how much you can finish.
MENTAL REHEARSAL AND PREPROGRAMMING
You can use mental rehearsal and reprogram a mental image to visualize the project you need to finish. In this chapter, Martha imaged her project as a big, thick wall. But she visualized it as defensive protection, to protect her from other criticism.
As a producer, you need to know which goal you can wholeheartedly pursue and which goal you just let go of. Like the reading book, I need to choose a realistic book and don’t change until I finished, because when I read several books in the same period, I will feel exhausted and nervous. I need to try to read one book and stick with it.
The reason for hesitating go set goals usually is we fear the setback. There are some steps to avoid setbacks:
Step 1:Recognize the work of procrastinating. I must know the guilty of procrastination is also a form of work, it is a choice I cannot avoid to choose.
