in my research on procrastination, it seems that we procrastinators have a high 'past-orientation' and a low 'future orientation,' i.e. we tend to ruminate on past events (either positively or negatively, it doesn't matter) and have trouble being 'forward thinking' or visualising things in the future....this is certainly true of me.
does anyone have any suggestions for concrete things to do that have helped you have a greater 'future orientation'? i am terrible at meditating, and i have a short attention span. and i realize that i've never had hobbies like knitting or drawing or anything like that because i cannot picture what things look like in advance of making them...i'm very good at pointing out what's wrong with things already in existence. but i have a hard time imagining anything in the future, no matter how big or small...and i think that is part of my problem.
