Happy (Huumphday) Wednesday, Everybody!

Tool Four of PA

Focus on Long Term Consequences--Procrastinators have a tendency to focus on short-term pleasure and shut out awareness of long-term consequences.  Remind yourself how panicked and awful you'll feel if the task isn't done, then imagine how good it will feel when the task is finished.

Have a great proactive day!

All I can do is show up. Feeling particularly low today and on the verge of giving up on my PhD. I am tired of this constant suffering.
