So here’s what occurs: You have a plan – let’s suppose, to awaken at 7; be washed and dressed to kill and breakfasted by 8; at your desk or other workspace by 9; work 3 hours; exercise during your lunch; eat a fit salad at your desk; work 4 more hours; come home; eat supper with your loved ones; work a few more hours in the evening; and then curl up in bed with a great book. Productive, right? But you didn’t abide by the plan.
You woke up late at 8, or 9, or…even noon! …and BOOM!!! The plan is trashed before you even got it started. Or, perhaps, it takes you not one, but three hours to make it to your desk. And then, when you’re there, you drop an hour or three reading the paper, net surfing, and making personal calls. Or, perhaps when lunch comes around you don’t exercise and rather than a salad you had some heavily loaded orishirishi amala+gbegiri+ewedu and then spent the rest of the afternoon feeling slow and didn’t get much done.
Procrastination is when you get bumped off the “course” you set for yourself for the day.
You’ll need to learn to resist the urge to get absorbed into activities not on your schedule, regardless how crucial or virtuous they appear at the moment. The one exception, naturally, is emergencies, by which I mean actions that can’t be put off without significant harm to yourself or other people. However even with an emergency, after you’ve handled it, ask yourself whether it may have been prevented by finer planning, or whether somebody else could have handled it. If you’ve got a challenging goal, it’s really crucial to learn to minimize the number of preventable emergencies in your life, and to learn to delegate as much as conceivable. Obviously, if somebody is ill or otherwise incapacitated, we ought to help them, but to what degree do we help them though? It’s not always clear, and a lot of procrastinators misjudge, sacrificing too much of their own time to assist other people, even when those other people aren’t particularly needy or when somebody else is available to help. For me, sometimes I’ll have a much more important thing to do, but I’ll be on YouTube “learning” something, before I know it, the whole time is gone. And I’ll say stuffs to myself like “atleast I was learning something”, meanwhile, the main something that should be done has been shifted till another time.
I do not think there is any one person on earth that doesn’t procrastinate but when procrastination becomes a habit, then, I believe, there is a problem.
You might have a disability that you have to live with or maybe you have experienced an awful loss from which the hurt will never entirely disappear. But you may still work to at least minimize the damaging effect of your ill luck on your future success. If you’ve been procrastinating a while, you’re likely demoralized and have lost sight of your strengths, gifts and virtues. Once you quit running from your obstacles and begin working to overpower them, you’ll reclaim those favorable qualities and you’ll probably discover a few wonderful new ones. This procedure of reclamation and growth is among life’s most amazing and joyful experiences.
Here is where to start from; Plan your entire day the night before and make it as precise as you possibly can.
Peace and Love.
