It Can Feel Like Procrastination Is the Only Option
For some of us, it’s all we’ve ever known. Harrison, however, insists that this process is easier than you’d think. “The brain is very trainable… I think we forget that we have that power.” In fact, we trained ourselves to rely on that penalty rush. According to Harrison, it’s very similar to a drug rush. “I want us to learn not to rely on that rush. Because that’s no different than relying on your glass of wine.”
By making different choices, Harrison says we can avoid feeling overwhelmed altogether. The best way to ensure that you don’t slip into old patterns is to figure out what works best for you. “When you understand how you work, you make better choices.” When you understand how procrastination doesn’t work for you specifically, you can figure out the best strategies for you.
Avoiding Being Overwhelmed
