    Default Somthing that might help INTPs

    I'm in a big rut at the moment, I'm sure there is a lot of other INTPs that are in a similar situation.Ive been experimenting with a lot for ways to help myself, one particular thing is helping me a lot and i thought id share it here.

    It called 'The 3 Notes'

    tis dead simple

    Do this, make a note of 3 things that are very important in your life and you NEED to make progress on

    Example:

    1.Job Search
    2.Current relationships (if these are going great then, maybe new relationships)
    3.Health

    Put this in your phone, at any time, pick a number and ask yourself what can i do next, not 1000 steps ahead, but right in front of me NEXT to get closer to this or work on it.Can be the smallest thing, like job search...OK go on job center website, look at jobs

    If you get bored, unfocused,start fucking around on face-book or whatever, repeat, either the same number, or pick another.

    Hope this helps someone, certainly helps me a little

    education---> opportunity.

    Oh, and posting this on a forum will make it harder for you to do. It's an unfortunate psychological effect, as telling people what you're going to do before you do it gives you a good feeling. Like a reward. And if you've been rewarded for something you haven't done yet, you tend to do a much poorer job. I suspect that this is what makes introverts more capable of focusing on one project for a long time.

    Not particularly, I have been using this technique for a while.

    Well its best you use it with a phone that is capable of making notes on a notepad.Also, make sure when you pick the number, have it where you can see it so you don't forgot and lose focus!!

    Can work well for INTPs that are very haphazard, like myself

    This. Mostly because I realized it today, when I told my friend I was going to stop smoking soon. Which is really not the same as actually stopping. Duh.

    I've learned how to focus a long time ago. I keep notes everywhere for essential things.
    Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.
