So am supposed to be doing this dump task for my currently named boss in the mean while but forget about that ! I feel the urge to dump my thoughts here or else I will explode in this office, things haven't been that perfect I have done a lot of action faking that I think I have moved zero steps forward, bought a domain name and was "trying" to work on the website but am just in a mess , my ideas are not organized and I don't have any sense of discipline,am really angry at myself , I don't know how a php tutorial article turns to how to feed an elephants in 10 magical ways article !but that happens every time
my routine goes like this
wake up
go to 9-5 job
go home
stare at the laptop screen til your eyes hurt
go to sleep
repeat
No improvements or real results, am a web developer so I don't need to outsource anything am fine with programming even learning new languages so that's not my problem if you think programming is holding me back.

also Am planning to quit my job on march until I have saved enough money to support me for at least 6 months , I know am comfortable right now and maybe that's why am not taking enough action but once my job comfort disappear maybe then I will feel the need to take action or starve, but I don't wanna wait til I quit my job, I want to invest this current time and come out with something but am not able to push myself enough , I feel stuck and miserable

I've also created a comfortable time for me and am moving very slowly. Now I've discovered Tony Robbins (now! :happy:) and today I started my day with this interview

that somebody on this forum recommended (thank you whoever it was!!). Today is my kaizen list full of checkmarks :cool:. Maybe some Tony motivation can help you too

yes that has helped me thank you.

so where am I now :
saved about 1k and 2 months away from quitting my job, half way through building my website from scratch.

what has helped me most is chunking down tasks as @AndrewNC has said ,the main problem was that actually I didn't have anything specific to do, my mind was floating around and wondering about everything at the same time which held me back, instead I should've started one step at a time with clear vision about what am doing and what should be done even if it's as little as setting up the main toolbar or one button functionality, and stop worrying about other things beside my currently assigned task ,everything will fall into place at the right time you have to believe this, you can't know everything and set up complete perfect plan for your project from stage zero to completion, you have to trust blindly and start executing.

I hope this can help someone to cut a bit of disney land wondering time and start getting their hands dirty.
