How to never finish what you start

  • Set unrealistic deadlines that are either too short or too long.
  • Wait for the perfect conditions to launch.
  • Put time and effort on any tasks that are not related to your main project .
  • Beat yourself up daily for not shipping.
  • Overload your to-do list with unnecessary tasks, and feel guilty for not completing them.
  • Avoid seeking help at all costs and try to figure everything out by yourself.
  • Keep working on your project despite feeling miserable and sacrificing your relationships with your loved ones.
  • Don’t set goals. That way you’ll never know if what you did was good enough and if you’ve reached the success criteria.
  • Don’t break projects into smaller, actionable steps. Focus on the entire project instead.
  • Work on other less important projects, and work on your main project only when you feel like it (usually every other month).
  • Promise yourself you’ll start working later in the day.
  • Wait for inspiration to strike before beginning work.
  • Drop your project as soon as they become challenging or boring.
  • Avoid tasks you dislike, even when you know you have to do them.
  • Think of the entire project each time you start and get overwhelmed by the amount of things you have to do each time you look at your to-do list.
