First Step is admitting it.
Second is to grab some ice cream and cry…or skip the ice cream. When was the last time you had a good cry?
The real Second Step is realizing that sometimes you can be in your own way is fucking mind boggling. It’s hard trying to think of the future and taking the right steps to getting there when something’s in your way, and coming to the realization that that something (this time…and maybe a few other times) is you is rough.
Third Step…tell yourself to move the fuck on and that you have shit to accomplish, but say it in a nice way.
Ex: Dear Henny,
Please stop watching so much TV via your MacBook. I understand that you want to catch up on Chopped, Arrested Development, Adventure Time, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Archer…wait has Bob’s Burgers come back out yet? (pause) OMG yes WTF MAN!!!?! Anyway…you gotta make time to work on shit. You’re not gonna get better if you don’t put in the time. Don’t waste it.
Fourth Step: Actually following through. I hate deadlines, but looks like I’m gonna have to start making some. I may have to watch Burger Bob while I get my act together. I can multitask ;}
