I am a Spaniard and I just visited my dad in the USA some days ago and I would say it's not a good place to live as a HikiNEET, except if you are rich or something. It's a hellish car-centered culture where you need a normalmobile even to go to the supermarket. I saw many obese people and old people working at Walmart. It's a wasteful country in many ways, wh n I was in the restaurant I would see them throwing tons upon tons of good food into the trash. Despite the face they can give it for free to the ones in need or sell it for half the price. many food and vital resources are wasted and people don't care. They eat tons of stuff even for breakfast. I visited also a restaurant and saw this humiliating tip culture, the waiters were desperate to cause a good impression. Also, there are no gibs, no free healthcare and many boomers who are obsessed with this postwar shitty work ethics thing and live in a delusional world in their mind. I know hating the USA in favor of Canada and Western Europe is mostly a tranny/reddit thing. But I actually understood everything when I spent some weeks there.

Hello wizzies, I am wondering if any of you have any advice on maintaining discipline to stick to a set of tasks or practices. I feel like I am capable of a lot more but I just can't bring myself to do everything I'd like. I've often thought about how different my life would be if I could.

I know some of you like to read obscure books and the like. Have you read about any practices that might be useful for such a thing? I have tried to research this topic in the past but literally everything I come across is half-assed, useless crap.

1. Do something you actually want to do
2. Have someone to keep you accountable
3. Set up a contingency whereby if you do not do what you are trying to do, you will suffer greatly

 No.294138

I've spent a lot of time thinking about this because I suffer from the same issue and I've come to the conclusion that there is no shortcut or trick. You just have to force it, and if you fail you can only try again harder. Looking for there to be some sort of advice is just a way to distract yourself from the brutal truth that you just have to force yourself to do it.

If you set clear goals and schedules/deadlines you can present yourself with plenty of opportunities to exercise your will and then it's just up to you to force yourself to follow through. Try to track your progress and increase the amount of times you follow through and do the things you want to do. If your goals aren't clear and can be shifted you will always find an excuse to shift them, so schedules or deadlines/quotas help. When you inevitably fail to follow through try not to get discouraged and just do your best with every new opportunity you get.

I am trying this with limited success. I can only handle one goal at a time and I am very shit at achieving it but it's better than nothing which is what I was doing previously. I am working on achieving consistency in routine first and foremost before I increase the intensity. When I don't feel like doing shit I will just do a little instead of none at all and then sometimes when I start I get into it and end up doing what I was supposed to anyway.

you're right, good stuff wizzie.

i will also say that there is such a thing as 'extrinsic motivation' and 'intrinsic motivation.' extrinsic means being motivated by external / often material things to yourself. e.g. money. whereas intrinsic are internal goals like 'i wanna be the best at this.' its said that intrinsic motivation is much more powerful than extrinsic motivation. that's why when employers offer people bonuses or higher pay it doesn't automatically mean more productivity. consequently, if you want to study a degree 'to make money' and you pick something boring as fuck that you don't love you're gonna find it nightmare difficult compared to if you had a genuine love of the subject.

the DIY gun manufacturing and government sabotage sub-community of wizchan is in the discord, you'll have to ask them
just make sure to remember the passphrase or else they wont let you in, it's looking for a good knotting
you'll find the discord by looking for furry-related discord groups and just saying the passphrase
good luck

How do you deal with boredom and procrastination? I saw there were 4 main reasons people procrastinate. Low self confidence or ability, low value in task or task being boring, too many distractions, bad time management. Useful info but what now?

 No.294026

Observe the negative feeling you get when you want to start working. It's uncomfortable so you try to distract yourself with something else and avoid it. The key to dealing with procrastination is to extract the meaning from this feeling so that you are able to reduce it. When nothing else works, you can brute-force it by pushing yourself through the discomfort, but this usually makes you miserable and produces subpar work.

Common example:
You have a task in front of you. When you think about working you get a pang of anxiety so you open up reddit to distract yourself. Instead of doing that, observe the feeling and what it's about. Hmmm, I see, I am overwhelmed by the task, it seems like its just too much, I don't know where to start. Usual way to deal with this is to off-load information on paper, a mind map, break it down into chunks until they become manageable and less anxiety inducing. You're writing an essay, it's made up of an introduction, main arguments and then conclusion. An argument is made out of several paragraphs etc.

Other times, problem is more with you than the task. You are faced with a naturally difficult problem, perhaps you don't have the skill to deal with it yet, but you have tied your self-worth to the outcome of the task. I am a worthless loser if I can't do this. Or, I will lose my job if I can't do this etc. This one is tricky because it's on two fronts: problem is difficult and my failure to deal with it is emotionally distressing. So maybe you can re-conceptualize what it means to you, also what affordances are available to you. Can I ask for help or will that make me hate myself even more?

I don't know. The basic gist is that you procrastinate because the work makes you feel uncomfortable for any number of reasons. Just observe the feeling and it will reveal what is causing it. Some of them are natural i.e. a problem is cognitively difficult so it will obviously be mentally straining, but it also could be emotionally distressing to you personally because it makes you feel inferior or guilty/ashamed (if you're thinking about robbing an old lady on the street but find yourself procrastinating on it).

what does it feel like when you think about the work
feel kinda dull and painful?
you should stay with this feeling
bathe in it
have fun with it
fantasize about work
re-imagine it
look at the dull sensation
hug it and hold its hand

Your reward system is fucked up, don't do anything that gives you dopamine (playing, daydreaming, listening to music, whatever) for 2 weeks so your reward system can reajust itself to find boring task engaging.

I don't wet my bed. However, today my piss jug was so full that piss spilled on the floor in my room. Then I used my white tee and hands to absorb it. Should've done it without rushing to the toilet. Upon returning I've noticed small drops on the carpet in the living room. They were rubbed by my father as I heard. Maybe he thought the cat did it. The tee stinks and it's the second time this happened.

i wish there would be a website to filter youtube results to avoid watching the same topics and partner channels over and over again.

where are all the videos with less than 5,000 views?
youtube always shows me the ones with more than 50k views

there are many people and artists uploading their content on youtube, but their channels are never shown, I wish I could reach them and watch different things instead of being "bombarded" with pop culture and shitty trendings.

Is there a way to avoid the algorithm to watch videos with less than 5,000 views? any website? does anyone know? i mean, this website is the largest library of audiovisual content on the internet
