We have inside procrastination, laziness or distraction that hinder us to focus on our subject.
Should we force us to focus?
Why don't we ask us in the first place why we can't focus?
Why do we let us distract? Why do we procrastinate? Why do we are lazy?
When we would have interests in the things that we should be focused on we would not have the problem to focus!
There exist for everything a reason or cause and if we don't know the reason we can't find the solution for most of all problems!
And from the positive thinking, we know that we should force us to be positive and productive...
If we force us to be productive and positive we gain at the end the negative. It is just like a pendulum. When we force the pendulum in one direction after some time it gets heavier and heavier until we lose our power and the pendulum swings in the opposite direction towards our laziness, distraction, and procrastination.
If we understand that there must be a reason why we can't focus we don't need to work so hard... For what? To suffer?
When we do something without forcing we can find much easier the solution. Because our tension and fears (to get the things done) are in the way to attract the right outcome!
First, enjoy your life! Second, find the reason why you can't focus! Third, solve or accept the problem, why you can't focus. Forth, why is it important to do the things? Fifth, be open to the solution.
For instance, I like to learn and I don't like to be forced to learn.
The University is taking away from every student the motivation to learn... So that the students are forced to learn to make their degree. And that is wrong! Still, we think it is necessary because our teachers have done so!
Pink Floyd: (Another brick in the wall) We don't need that education, we don't need thought control... Teacher, please leave the kids alone... Year!!!
