    How do you kick yourself in the butt?

    I know this is a common INFP problem but since I am especially high on introversion, intuition AND perceiving...I think I do a LOT of thinking to myself and get bogged in the fantasy world of ideas and what could be but not actually making them a reality.

    For instance, I have written numerous songs but never recorded them or figured out all the chords to play them well. I have a great idea for a novel but have not began writing it and I very much want to learn to draw well but always end up on Personality Cafe, etc. complaining that I don't have the discipline to do it. I suppose the answer to solving these problems is within me and I know what time management is but since we're all in this boat together, I'd like to know how you all strive to be productive.

    Lots, lots, lots, lots, LOTS of yoga. Once the required flexibility has been achieved, stand up, assume mountain pose, lift one leg, bend carefully and.... let go! Good luck.

    Yeah, my extreme lack of flexibility has been my main deterrent in taking up yoga although I desperately want to give it another shot. Ever tried meditation?

    Sort of like condoms, yes... in case you might need it later. Someday.

    I channel my inner redneck. The inner redneck is a twangy raspy voice that demands me to quit being a ______ ________ and get out there and _______ do it. Its crude but extremely effective.

    Man, I must be really out of it. I just read yoga and something about a leg bend and thought it was a serious answer. My sarcasma-meter is off today, I swear I'm an iNtuitive.

    dude...........

    I know what you mean...... I immediately clicked on your thread.
    THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM people.....

    Sigh I was supposed to go to my internship tmrw but decided to go next week instead but then my ENTJ friend shamed me for it LOL

    No but seriously speaking, I have been having a war with my lack of discipline lately. I really go by what I want to do, at that moment, I don't know how to reign it all in and do what I'm supposed to do, not what I desire.

    Ok to answer you question... I make small goals, and yes, I do beat myself up for being dumb and falling short of what I want to do, but I do believe that your desire for discipline when greater than your initial desire to be lazy... can work.

    You've got to see your laziness for what it really is. You've got to HATE your laziness and lack of discipline.

    I find it to be a real flaw in my character- I have all these great ideas and desires and longings, and I'm so impressed by myself, but then I'm all TALK NO ACTION

    But hey we're works in progress, am i right???

    we have to keep trying. And we have to be realistic. Also... this is really important: we have to grow up.

    Strange, this sounds like my inner immigrant Italian mobster...

    But really the only good solution I've found is copious amounts of coffee and impending deadlines.
