setting your mind to act on daily grinds because your conscience
wouldn’t let, pretend a moment on these other ways around it and watch
yourself get busy!
of the only times I’d encourage that you ‘pretend’ to do something else
or be someone else when you need to achieve a goal or if you need to
cross out the deadline of your task. We know too well that there are
times motivation could be having its beauty sleep while you wait
earnestly for it to show up somewhere. Here’s the deal, you don’t have
to wait. Instead, improvise on some ‘pretend skills’ and get to work
Below are a few examples of common
projects and their ‘pretend ways’ to execute them. You could generate
ideas from them for your major projects.
don’t feel too strong to do your laundry yourself so you opt for having
the unclean clothes sent to the dry cleaners, but you still have this
tug in your chest pushing you to save your money and do your work
have a management meeting coming up, or a special church thanksgiving,
or a potential job interview, and sending your clothes out to the dry
cleaner is a lot more affordable than having to go shop for new
your own cooking and you have the desire to consume a meal of taste
distinct from yours, but you’re tormented by the thoughts of paying for a
meal you feel is overpriced and you can make for about one-third the
price it’s being sold at restaurants/fast food joints.
about to pretend you’re having to celebrate an occasion/milestone in
your life (your family’s or your friend’s) so you shouldn’t labor out
the joy of the day. Better still, you place an order for a meal you
couldn’t ordinarily cook by yourself because of the rare/specific
ingredients needed? Preferably a meal with name difficult to pronounce.
need to be somewhere rather imperative, and you’re having a lazy day,
neither feeling like driving yourself nor hopping on and off various
transit means, but the thought of calling for a taxi (or Uber) and
unnecessarily denting the state of your bank account balance is
unappealing. How about to pretend you were an invited guest of where you
need to be at, so you’ll only appear to be borrowing from your account
as you would be reimbursed (at the end of the quarter perhaps).
Hopefully you forget to worry after time passes.
wish to provide assistance to somebody and you think this is something
that ought to be undertaken, but you’re having to think a lot about it
because this person isn’t the most generous and kindest person in the
world. How about to pretend you have something to gain from this person
or s/he is a distant cousin you’re obliged to attend to, or you were
helping out a close friend’s sibling. Then giving your assistance would
be a lot fairer, wouldn’t it?
when you have a bunch of activities lined up for which you have to
execute all or a decent amount that day, and your alarm has done its
part to set you up and ready, but you find yourself faffing and binging
on social media.

How about to pretend the rate/extent of your internet usage gets charged on your current airtime balance and there was no other way around it? Or to pretend turning in the results of the tasks early enough would get you paid by the hour? Would that help to make you leave your device for a minute and get you on the move?
Would any pretending help?
