Rewards for Avoiding Temptation of Procrastination
I read this interesting article (link below) in which the author was talking about a particular strategy for overcoming temptations that would derail you from achieving a goal: every time you avoid the temptation, reward yourself. I'm going to do it for this month, rewarding myself $1 for every time I resist the temptation to procrastinate. I can redeem the $ once it reaches $10. I think the biggest challenge may be having awareness that I am tempted to procrastinate as it seems I often do it on auto-pilot. I withdrew $100 in $1s from the bank and intend to carry the money with me, along with a separate "Rewards" envelope into which I will put the $1s as I earn them.
