Chapter 1:
Stop Putting It Off
Synopsis
Once you face a hard undertaking, it may occasionally feel like
you’re attempting to move a huge mountain. The longer
you gaze up at the huge mountain, the more overpowering
your undertaking appears. In that state of affairs, it's
really easy to begin putting things off by finding other
matters to accomplish.

Get Moving
Putting things off is among the major obstructions that you need to
get the better of in order to make your aspirations a reality. The secret
to defeating putting things off is to quit looking up at the mountain
and begin looking down at your lawn cart. Allow me to me explain…
Once you look at a complex undertaking in its totality, it's really
simple to become paralyzed by the out-and-out amount of work that
you have to do. Your brain begins telling you that ‘it’s out of the
question’ and you spiral downwards into an ocean of negativity. The
way to get the better of this paralysis is to alter your focus and quit
thinking of the total undertaking you have to complete. Rather, just
center on something you know you are able to accomplish. Let’s
consider an example to see how this works in real life.
John is confronting the ‘mountain’ of composing a Ph.D. dissertation.
When he thinks of composing a five hundred page written document,
it simply appears too overpowering and so day in day out he dillydallies
and avoids getting moving.
Every morning, John asks himself, “may I write a five hundred page
written document?” and his inner answer is “nope !” so he put things
off and looks around for extra things to accomplish - He takes his
youngsters to school, travels to the gym, does the shopping. Anything
to fend off the mountain that's sitting in his den.
Eventually, John recognizes that the best way to defeat putting things
off is to quit looking up at the mountain and begin looking down at
his lawn cart.

Rather than asking himself, “may I write a five hundred page written
document?” he starts out his day by asking, “may I work at my Ph.D.
without becoming distracted for 60 minutes?” - his inner answer to
this question is “yep - I may easily do 60 minutes”
John barricades out all misdirection and works on his Ph.D. for 60
minutes. At the end of the 60 minutes he feels like he's made a little
amount of progress. He asks himself once again, “may I work at my
Ph.D. without becoming distracted for 60 minutes?” – As he's already
accomplished this, he recognizes the answer is ‘yep’ so he does it once
more.
By the finish of the day, John has accomplished 4 hours of effective
work at his Ph.D. He's tempted to look up at the mountain but he
recognizes it's much better if he simply centers on moving his lawn
cart 60 minutes at a time.
After a month of following this procedure, John has a look at his
mountain and discovers that his 60 minute blocks of activity have
made a spectacular impact. This provides him even more selfassurance
and momentum to continue moving forward.
Bit by bit, 60 minutes at a time, John moves his mountain.
If you're presently attempting to move a mountain in your life, here
are the tips you need to take in order to overpower putting things off
and get the job accomplished!
