I fucking love making to do lists with check boxes next to them and actually doing them and checking those boxes off. I swear I would put "call mom" as something to do with a box next to it just so I can check that shit off. It's such a satisfying feeling, especially for someone who has struggled with procrastination all his life. For one, it holds me accountable for all the tasks I know I need to do, and two, it makes me actually remember what the fuck I have to do. I'm old school with it too, I mean a pen to pad list of things to do. If I tried to technologify this and email myself reminders, I would need an email reminder reminding me of my reminder.
Doing the things you know you need to do feels so damn good. I guess the trick is remembering how much better it feels than not, cause not doing shit sometimes feels awesome too. Then it doesn't at all. Just like getting wasted. Always a great idea, until it's not. The morning after, yea man, total opposite of a regretful "what the fuck did I do last night?" All you have to do is look at your list. Boom. Now you know.
