(Not) Acting under urgency
Urgency seems to be my only motivator for me to get things done.
For instance, ill go through periods of procrastination over getting my blogs/websites up and running an decide that getting a job would be a good idea to earn an income while working on my own potential income streams.
The problem is, if you're not heading toward your goal you're drifting away from it, and that's honestly what i see a job is. The reason i say this, is today is the day yet again for a job interview and its only now do i feel that familiar gut feeling that "this isnt the right thing for me". My track record has proven that i generally quit within the first few days of a new job.
The time i spend at a job i could be spending productively on creating a business for myself.
Its only untill interview day or quitting day do i act under the urgency (pain) of going to work gives me.
How do i fix this?
I think i need to stop seeing a job as a safety blanket and more as a painful waste of time, as is sitting doing nothing.

Steve has some great articles on overcoming procrastination here, read them, they're great.
As far as the job, don't quit until you have exhausted every possible avenue available in the place to learn new skills from the other people there.
In job motivation... be the best that you can be and all that. I set myself targets such as task turnaround time or response time, preparation for known upcoming tasks and so on, I am constantly measuring myself against my past performance. Keeps me going hard at it.

You could also pick up Think and Grow Rich.. there's a section on procrastination. You could pick up a free copy at Welcome
It's also interesting that you talk about your job as a safety blanket... that might be your problem. I think your odds for success are greatly increased when you commit 100% to your dreams. Napoleon Hill talks about the warriors who were greatly outnumbered when they traveled the sea to fight their enemies. They burned their ships so they had no way to retreat... they either had to win or die... and of course they won. Quiting your job might be one way to burn your ship. Now, I'm not telling you to quit your job.. I'm just giving you some food for thought
