Make sure your REWARD / Motivation system is working properly.
Aka Dopamine and the other neurotransmitters such as GABA, Acetylcholine and serotonin.
If you have deficiency in these neurotransmitters it can cause havok with you brain function and motivation for life.
For most people who procrastinate there's NO POINT in doing tasks because they get no reward from it.
So they have to use a lot of WILL POWER just to do anything. Unless its things like watching TV, playing computer games or masturbating. Or something they love extremely. In some cases you may use to love something but now you can't be asked to do it at all anymore.
Guess why? Lack of dopamine.
They know they SHOULD do it but they rather do something else that makes them feel good for the dopamine release. It's hard for a procrastinator to do something they don't want to do without an excellent reward system in place.
Doesn't matter how much REASON why you put behind it. It won't last. You always have to be doing something NEW to feel good.
The new trend now is MINI habit's. That won't work either if you're deficient.
It the hardware thats not working properly not the software.
Doesn't matter how much software (incantations affirmations, visualization self-help programs) you do. You'll still be stuck because your hardware is not in order.
While you'll get excited for a while and buy product after product to get you dopamine fix. You won't follow through and take action especially if you're deficient in dopamine.
How do you get deficient in dopa and the other neurotransmitters?
Porn, Ejaculating and substances like cocaine spike dopamine way out of wack. So in order to feel pleasure, you have to do these things and NOTHING else really gives you that sense of reward. Meaning you have to do something extreme to really feel excited and motivated about something...
But guess what... That won't last.
Now this might also give you a condition called anhedonia.
It's basically a condition where you can't feel much. Your feelings are numb and shallow. You can feel negative feelings way more than positive feelings.
Not sure if anyone is going to relate to this but if you're interested in finding out how to overcome this. Let me know and I'll post the links and resources. It only takes 30-90 days to overcome providing you're already healthy.
When you get you brain back and upgrade it. It's like going from windows 97 to MacOS Sierra lol!
I believe this to be the route cause to a lot of peoples procrastination.
