IM to work around MHO, Passive Action; Perfectionism


I’ve been working (experimenting) with MHO since it launched. Where I find that I make more changes (not following through) is when I schedule a Result for which I don’t have much knowledge about the small steps/actions required for its completion (the how) during MHO.

These models relate to writing my dissertation thesis, so the expected results and related tasks are completely new to me.
When planning I don’t have much knowledge about how to get it done. I encounter the “obstacles” (and therefore the strategies) throughout the process of writing.

UM:
C: Focused time block of 2h for a defined result: eg. Finished Section X of the Dissertation Draft
T: I don’t know where to start.
F: Confusion
A: I over-research (passive action – consuming information), I jump to another unrelated task, I buffer with food and take breaks, I scroll social media, listen to podcasts, I look for information on planning, make changes in the schedule, I indulge in overthinking and overwhelmed.
R: I don’t figure out where to start.

If I work on a bridge T to change the result (eg. I can figure out how to start) I still struggle in my A-line with the over-research tendencies, because I working on my perfectionism.

IM
C: Focused time block of 2h for a defined result: eg. Finished Section X of the Dissertation Draft
T: I can figure out how to start.
F: Confidence.
A: I over-research – passive action through the whole focus time block, I don’t write, I get lost in the information, I indulge in overwhelmed and overthinking, I procrastinate with social media.
R: I’m closer to figure out where to start, but I did not finish the result.

Are these models ok? Especially the IM?
What could be a better IM?
Should I avoid scheduling results and focus on scheduling tasks?
Should I schedule research time for a determinate result or should I spend more time in MHO trying to figure out “the how” then?
Or am I indulging in perfectionism? Is this more of a problem with perfectionism?

Thanks 🙂
