It's often appealing to put things off rather than get them over with. You get to avoid responsibility and comfort yourself with rationalizations that you're somehow better off waiting rather than acting. But the way to get ahead is to leap into action while others are convincing themselves it's OK to do nothing.
Fabulously Broke in the City offers a way to overcome the urge to procrastinate, theorizing that boring yourself into action is the key. If you take away alternatives to mundane tasks, they become more attractive, for lack of more appealing options.
Once you find yourself reasonably bored, approach your to-do list and knock off your tasks. The thinking goes that if you condition yourself to accomplish your goals rather than put them off, you'll end up with much more time to do with as you please.
