    I have this mentality as well. In fact, I say it a lot at work.

    'Float off' is a good term for it. If thereis no anchor... no reason to stay in the moment lol... man I can't describe it accurately but its amusing to me. Probably a bit aggravating to people around me and friends who don't hear from me... but they know I'll re-surface eventually.

    I work in surges. Sometimes I'm uber-J and then for two weeks I do nothing and am lazy. I'm trying to figure out how to be consistent with my self-discipline.
    Self Discipline is not something I think I have much of. I deal with the 'urgent' things that have to be done in order to 'survive' (Pay bills, sleep, eat, meet work deadlines...) but other than that I don't really have a sense of personal urgency about much at all. When something does strike my fancy and I become interested in it I'll have a ball doing all kinds of thinking about it, researching it, discussing it with people... but when something else comes along that seems more interesting the new hobby goes by the wayside. I know how to do a lot of things but I'm not very good at most of them

    I actually have a weakness for German Chocolate Cake. And hot men.

    Can I come over some time and hang out?

    So... the better we are at things and the more competent we become... the less likely we are to tackle big problems. Interesting. Something about it rings true in a perverse kind of way.
    Embrace the possibilities.

    I need a goal to be productive as well as the want to do the task. Without these two criterias, i tend to do the minimum to finish the job. Its not a bad job, its just not as great if I had been working on something I'm interested at.

    I will admit, i'm lazy to a fault. I can get lost in my thought about concepts without having the need to do anything else. Procrastination is also an enemy that I been fighting for ages and I feel that it's not getting easier fighting with it.
    This post grammatical errors had been intentionally left uncorrected.

    That's exactly me.

    However, the work that's hard for me usually simply involves executing constant discipline - I usually waver, and find myself giving up very easily or getting absorbed in other preoccupations :/

    I wouldn't only project this onto relationships, this has happened to me for school as well and I've actually been busy trying to figure out relationships a lot during my teen years, sometimes to the point of QQ'ing.
    Currently I'm doing well in that area and I'm figuring out the rest as I'm on a quest across the horizon. XD

    As a fellow Ni-dom, I can relate to alot here. Well except for the whole "efficient laziness" part - that's certainly the INTJ domain.

    Efficient laziness. Yes. I find that results vs. effort seems to follow a logarithmic curve. It's just a matter of finding the sweet spot where I'm satisfied enough with the expected results to not be motivated to put any more effort in because it won't have a significant positive effect. Then I can go do something else with that time I've just saved.

    (I feel ya.)

    To the expense of potential future endeavors - hopefully not.
