Excellent round up! Thank you for putting it together.

I believe a precursor to everything here, which can often be overlooked, is clarity on what your goals are and why you have them.

It’s hard to muster the drive and focus when you’re unsure what you’re in for in the first place.

That's a really nice overview you assembled here, Milan!

I've also written about many of these methods on my blog.

For Beating Procrastination I have some additional tips:

1) Pinpoint the Immediate Physical Action: Target a precise, actionable, physical step, making it a more welcoming starting point rather than a vague, overwhelming goal.

2) Refine & Divide Task Load: Transform daunting projects by breaking them into manageable pieces or focusing initially on just a bite-sized portion, boosting confidence and forward motion.

3) Unmask Hidden Efforts (Invisible Work): Recognize and address concealed prerequisites or steps, demystifying the task and making it more digestible.
