Any books on how to stop being lazy? I feel like there's things I need to do but I just never get up to do them.

      I posted the other thread, I just wanted to rip on David Goggins and self-help books in general for how useless they are. They're just 400 pages of "just work hard bro"

    I don't think there's a way if your brain is actually fried, I have the same problem but have periods where I can find the drive to do those things, but it never sticks. I never "get over it". I blame SSRI discontinuation syndrome for this btw. Sometimes I feel the only way is to change the entire structure and rhythm of your life, like living on a farm or something. The external pressures that make you productive are the only effective ones in this instance

    The thought of doing something you don't feel like doing causes the part of your brain that feels pain to light up. When you do it, the pain goes away.

    I've met people who say that this book unironically changed their lives.

    >Reading a book to develop willpower
    That's like reading a book to become muscular, the only way to develop is to do. People don't want to clean their house or mow their lawn, they force themselves to. The longer and more often you force yourself to do things the easier it becomes.
    I was a lazy slob and got blacklisted from renting an apartment basically anywhere in NW Vermont and had to flee the state when I got evicted for how fricked up I had let my 220 sqft apartment become. There was black mold all over, a fruit and drain fly infestation so bad I couldn't eat in my apartment and could only drink things in disposable containers with removable caps, I had removed the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors because their batteries has died and wouldn't stop beeping, and mounds of bagged trash had consumed all the furniture and open space in my apartment outside of the mattress I slept on. I had to keep all of my clothes in my locker at work which meant in the winter when the hotel I worked at would furlough me for weeks at a time I had only the clothes I was wearing and my jacket. When I got an apartment in Rhode Island I vowed to learn from my mistakes and made a point of dedicating 10 minutes a day to cleaning even if there was nothing particularly dirty I would still do shit like clean my windows and wipe down baseboards. I took the same approach to personal hygiene afterwards and made it a point to shower every night and every morning and brush my teeth after every meal and put deodorant on before leaving the house. After that I found other things that required willpower a lot easier to do. I was able quit smoking, not get drunk on the weekdays, force myself to go outside, and finish my college degree.
    >tl;dr: Learn to force yourself to do shit

    just read this it's pretty good if you've dropped off of fitness recently and are looking to get back into it (while having a busy life)

    I would say read 12 rules for life or some minimalism type of book if you can't even do anything when you get out of bed. Yes I know Peterson is a meme but I believe he was sane at the time of writing that book.

    The amount of willpower you possess is directly proportional to the amount of urges and impulses suppressed by you at any given moment. Your battery is continuously drained because of the immediate indulgence of any and all trivial urges that arise.
    Start with small renunciations first; no ice cream after dinner, if you feel the need to say something useless refrain from doing so, try to forgo smoking a cigarette like you usually do while on break at work, don't click on the coombait image while scrolling through IQfy, etc. After some period of this you will feel a force well up inside of you. Like a tension or feeling of fullness. You can go further than this by denying yourself more powerful impulses, but for the average person this initial injection of force should be sufficient for their daily requirements. Good luck.

      What's wrong with smoking a cigarette every now and then during a break?

    This self-help advice grift from podcast personalities like goggins is really rudimentary education that any strong father figure gives you from childhood. It is a testament to the lowly state of certain demographics, needing some overcompensating muttman to tell them to stop watching porn or playing videogames for 10 hours a day. How pathetic.
