Funny thing is, Js are flooding this thread.
My problem with getting things done is, I dont know what I want. Why comform to being successful in a way that society wants us to be successful, yeah life would be easier but I love to analyse, I love to think, I love to not do. Dont get me wrong, I have job, I am about to start university, but I got no enjoyment of finishing something, just relieve that its over. I get enjoyment out of considering all the possibilities.
I may be stuck with the easy life, not earning millions, not having lots of chicks but personal goals are subjective. I am not smart enough to be a professor or a researcher, so I take the job with least amount of work for the most amount of pay. Dont need excess luxury, but its smart to have a back-out plan.
Your guide is good for people wanna comform to societies ideals, not saying they are bad, but they arent for me.
