2. Associate pain to not being able to take action anymore
What are the consequences of continuing to postpone this activity? How does it affect me?
3. Put the task in simple and clear terms, and start
What is the most important step I can take now to accomplish my task? Is it possible that it starts now? Would it be a good time to start?
4. Get someone to support you.
What person could help me do this activity? (Support groups, partners, coach, etc …)
5. Break the state of laziness by doing something different

What am I missing doing this important activity?
How much time would you like to waste doing activities that do not make a difference?
7. Use your identity
