What I used to do was join groups and work on their projects and slowly work on my projects as a side effect. It didn't work out long term because eventually people got the wrong idea and tried to use me as a doormat and I am more like a high voltage shag rug.

I want to figure out other more reliable way to get me out of the loop.

Think long and hard about what your motivations are. What do you want above all?

When you know that, it'll be very easy to see which activities contribute to what you want and those which are actually, just a waste of time.

As with most things, it's the journey and not the end that you wanna keep your eye on.

Pick a number of things to get done each day and when those are done you can feel like you accomplished your tasks for the day. I always pick 3 things that must get done and then do other stuff to fill in around them if I'm that motivated. It's easy to feel overwhelmed and just dick off instead of getting a few important things done.

find 10 things that need to get done, then think about how important they are, you will realize most are not that important. now, If the you think more about the last few things, your out of time and now go fap and sleep.

Since you say you have not tried it yet, i would suggest trying to throw pomodoros at the problem.

Buy a red kitchen timer, close all distractions, set the timer to 25 minutes, and work on some single exclusive thing without allowing yourself any deviation from that task for those 25 minutes. It's not a lot of time, is it. Once the timer rings, take a break, rinse, repeat. Ideally, set some timer for your break in case you enter some infinite fun space while on the break (3829 tabs open full of tvtropes...).

If you dont like the sacredness of an actual physical kitchen timer, you can use e.g. tomato-timer.com, or some widget for your OS.

It's not foolproof and i can't say i really buy the increased productivity claims for non-procrastinators, but for me as a procrastinator the buff magnitude reaches hundreds of percent as long as i can tokenize the subgoals and stay uninterrupted (which is difficult when you need to communicate, for example).

I made enough progress. I can say the task I been procrastinating on. I have been procrastinating on rebuilding my desktop on Debian Buster, but I am going to do it in a virtual machine as a live stream and then provision it using some BS GNU/Linux magic.

I wonder what would happen if everyone stopped procrastinating.
