Yes, it takes efffort to write but the payoff is more than worthy of the effort. “I continued writing in my journal and as time passed, I accumulate enough material to begin looking back at what I had written, and this presented me with an opportunity to observe the ways and patterns in which my mind worked.”
This is only one insight in any book full of good stuff. Thank you David Parker for “The more You Do, The Better You Feel.”
He’s bravely open about his own depression and anxiety — later in the book wondering if depression causes procrastination or procrastination causes depression.
Parker introduces the term “floating,” that self-numbing, escapist stuff we do that keeps us untethered to life’s responsibilities — watching too much TV, oversleeping, etc. — but also feeling falsely secure. I identified strongly with this concept as my own time can seem to slip rapidly away from me day after day.
However, Parker offers a simple and novel solution, the J.O.T. Method, as a way to jumpstart doing. I won’t give away particulars. But I’ve tried it, and it is an effective way to build momentum at doing discrete tasks and gain back a sense of productivity and capability.
I recommend this book to anyone floating and habitually procrastinating out there, operating below full potential. This book can get you moving again and achieving more and more, feeling more competent and sure of yourself all the while.
