|I struggle a lot with procrastination. I'm not even sure if its that, laziness, a lack of discipline or all three.|
From the age of 13, I distinctly remember not bring able to finish software/game projects, not out of difficulty but something I can barely describe. I just hit a block. If I try and force my way past it, I go at a snails pace and have no where near as much energy as when first starting the project. This is true even if its a trivial project longer than a couple of days.
This is true for almost everything in my life. Ill stick to a healthy eating regime for a couple if weeks, I'll exercise daily for 5 days and books and projects remain some percentage completed. The only things I can seem to finish are ones I can do in one sitting.
What's interesting to note is that this problem is more subtle. It is not as intense.
I was wondering if anyone has any advice? I do believe this problem is seriously getting in the way if my life.
