Small steps explained ( I don’t think the recent review was adequate)
We have A Project to do.
We feel overwhelmed, not up to it, defeated before we start, and we procrastinate.
The strategy is Small Steps. Break the project or task into small steps and focus on one at a time – basically forget about the project, just focus on the one step. If it’s still too much, break that step into smaller steps and start over again.
Start with the logical first step, or with the hardest. Once the hardest one is done, it won’t seem overwhelming anymore.
Any time you finish a small step, you feel empowered, successful, capable, and it’s easier to go on to the next step.
Success breeds success.
One step at a time

This technique is still helping me. When I decided I have to study but I’m procrastinating in front of the computer because I’m affraid studying too hard I’ll go “ok, at least open up the PDF file with the materials”. And then I’ll watch some more Netflix, and then I’ll go “ok, now open the teaching video and hit pause”. And before I know it, I’m studying! 🙂
good use of creative strategies!
as always, thank you for your contributions
