Here are 7 key lessons from Get It Done: Surprising Lessons from the Science of Motivation:

1. Choose the right goals: Not all goals are created equal. Choose goals that are specific, challenging, and achievable, and that tap into your intrinsic motivation. Avoid "should" goals and focus on goals that you truly desire.

2. Attack the "middle problem": The middle of a project is often the hardest part to stay motivated. Break down your goals into smaller steps and celebrate your progress along the way. Use implementation intentions to plan out exactly how you will achieve each step.

3. Battle temptations: We are all susceptible to temptations that derail our productivity. Identify your most common triggers and develop strategies to resist them. This could involve creating a distraction-free work environment or using commitment devices.

4. Use social support: Don't try to go it alone. Share your goals with others who will support you and hold you accountable. Find a mentor or accountability partner who can offer guidance and encouragement.

5. Prime your environment: Your physical and social environment can have a big impact on your motivation. Set up your workspace in a way that is conducive to productivity and surround yourself with people who inspire you.

6. Leverage progress: Seeing progress is one of the best motivators. Track your progress and celebrate your achievements, no matter how small. This will help you stay on track and motivated to keep going.

7. Find the fun: If you're not having fun, you're less likely to be motivated. Find ways to make your work enjoyable, even if it's challenging. This could involve gamifying your tasks or setting small rewards for yourself.

These are just a few of the key lessons from Get It Done. By putting these tips into practice, you can overcome procrastination, boost your motivation, and achieve your goals.
