    I have a few questions.

    How do you stop procrastinating? I've been procrastinating on a few things and I always seem to forget or put it off because something else gets my attention.

    How do I convince my mother to let me fast for an entire week? I did it once, years ago and want to do it again but my mom doesn't like the idea of me going without food for a whole week.

    ALL procrastination stems from stress. I used to get it a LOT when I told myself to work hard - my solution, DON'T work hard. It's completely unnecessary. Just enjoy yourself, and say something like "I GET to do this" rather than "I HAVE to do this." Trust me, this works. Don't try and get organised and carry notes and reminders around everywhere either, because it just makes it worse.

    And don't judge your achievements with results. The ONLY achievement that matters is satisfaction, and if that comes from a toasted hot pocket then so be it - it's as much as an achievement as anything else in this world. Unless of course you're fasting...

    And on the subject of fasting, you're just going to have to convince your mother that you're doing it for a purpose and you're not just starving yourself. I used to fast too - especially when I was going through major life transitions and wanted to focus all of my energy on prayer (eating actually consumes a lot of energy funnily enough.)

    She probably won't like it, but she can't force feed you. If you've to do it you've got to do it.

    There’s two types of procrastination: situational and chronic. If you’re always putting things off that’s another matter. You should pray for discipline and against laziness.

    Set a deadline and tackle hard things first. This is called eating your frog. It was coined by Brian Tracy. Tracking your productivity helps if you prefer to see steady progress. You can use a task app if you’d like.

    If you’re in the weeds and need an overhaul, The 12 Week Year approach is best.

    Laziness is always trying to tell you something, discipline will come after you've discovered what that message is. I think prayer, fasting and meditation would be a good thing to get him going. Even better if it's during a week's leave.

    I'm not disagreeing with you, I'm just looking at it from an abstract standpoint.

    That’s correct. That’s why I mentioned both forms of procrastination. Since he didn’t state if he’s putting off a specific task or avoiding everything.

    I agree with a spiritual approach too. But I’m also aware of the necessity of backing that up with action. Once you take action you’ll discover the best system. A good way to combat this problem is to list your daily accomplishments. You’ll see your output and make adjustments as needed.
