Do you mean me specifically?
The only way i have been able to overcome procrastibation and anxiety in my life it when i was thrown into a completely new environment, like when i enrolled in college, or did a work abroad program. Eventually my mental demons came back and made me start to move back into my shell and also the people i met would always cause me disharmony in my soul, so now i know, whatever activities i am to do, they must categorically not include other human beings in them. This way i may be able to 'warp' my mind towards a positive feedback loop that is normally broken by, well, normals.
It's not step taking at all, it's a jump in the deep cold part of the ocean, and that's the only thing that had ever helped me. But plus, it's also the step between non-action and action, between 0 and 1 and that's why the first step always feels so massive.
About the perceptionwiz, yes, he did help a lot with understanding, but i'm still not there and cannot get my head around what he was asking. I don't know how long it's been since i posted this, but the point remains that i am still more entertained with imageboards and reading wikipedia than bettering myself. Again, i can clearly see that i will regret this lifestyle in 10 more years, but that is not enough to motivate me to change. The carrot and the stick mentality does not work on me.
So to summarise, my method going forward is a blend of extreme isolation and and breaking old habits by way of environmental changes, but again, i find myself returning to stasis over time, but that is as best as i know how right now.
