How to actually do things?

How do I actually get up and do shit every day? Every morning I seem to forget that I actually have things to do.

I've been doing absolutely nothing for the past 3 years. 3 YEARS. 3 years since I graduated highschool. Graduated old as fuck at 18 because I dropped out for 2 years.

Since I finally graduated I felt so accomplished I proceeded to drop out of college.

Now I do nothing.

Literally just browsing the internet and reading TRP.

Definitely not RP, I'm a good looking guy, I use RP game to get bitches but I'm skinny as fuck and somehow I manage to get girls to come over to my parents basement being broke as fuck.

My parents give me money to "go have McDonald's" with my fat friends and we end up just getting high playing videogames. If I had a console I would probably just do that all day instead of mindlessly browse the internet all the time.

I have no job lol, I've been procrastinating that for so long.

I am due to start school soon, so there's that.


How do you guys get into the "do shit" mindset everyday? Every morning that I wake up I feel like doing nothing and I just end up getting high.

I tried waking up early and not going on the computer but my complete lack of self control ends me up browsing the internet for hours on end.

Start working out little by little, habits are hard thing to break. Think about something you really want in your life, whatever it is, and then focus on getting that one thing. You'll see that once you get in the habit of trying to achieve that one thing, everything else will start flowing. Start with a short term goal first, then something better etc.

Definitely, I think most of life is like that. One goal and then another with a larger objective in mind.

Notepad and pen. Write a to-do list that has very specific tasks that are doable in a small amount of time. Cross them off as you do them.

If you have a large task, e.g. redesign the layout of your room, break it down to smaller tasks.
E.g.

  • Pick up everything from the flooor
  • Vacuum floor
  • Put away all clothes
  • Tidy desk
  • Empty bookshelf onto desk, move bookshelf and replace books

This way you will not be put off by large tasks as you can do almost anything on the list in 20-30mins. You also get a nice dopamine hit when you cross something off.

Remember, it's all about discipline.

Oh and move your computer so that it is not visible in the area you spend most of your time; out of sight, out of mind. The harder you make it to procrastinate, the more likely an important task will rise to the top of your brain's shit to do list.

Definitely gonna try this, very good article man.

How do you remember to stay disciplined though? It's so hard to remember this because my mind slips into procrastination mode waaay too easily. It's scary how much I don't notice it, one moment I'm getting off the computer to actually do shit and then I just find myself opening Reddit again.

No easy solution to this. You have to set yourself long term goals and commit to them. As long as you truly want to become better, you won't convince yourself to do anything.

I found that physically writing myself a contract and signing it helped. I am a strong believer that a man is his word. If I sign myself a contract, I must stick to my own word.

That's cool, I'll sign that definitely gonna get on it right now

Stop smoking weed it makes you lazy and unmotivated and stop hanging out with your fat fuck friends. 18 is a normal age to graduate highschool go back to school. When I quit smoking pot totally changed my life for the better. I have no idea how anyone could be fine living such a shitty unfulfilling life.

A lot of people say weed is bad mentally, is it okay to just smoke on weekends though?

[–]JimFury0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy Link

No. I tried that it didn't help. Once every few months maybe.

[–]helptrp[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

Shit man, this is knowledge I refuse to accept you know?

[–]JimFury0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

Accept it or not. You know your life needs a change and if you aren't willing to make sacrifices to change it than how do you expect it to get better. Unless you're fine with your life the way it is.

[–]helptrp[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Definitely bro, thing is my friends always smoke pot so I smoke it by default.

One thing I can do is not smoke by myself though.

What do you think?

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
