Procrastination: How to stop it.


Since the begin­ning of time, we have been won­der­ing why are we so eas­i­ly dis­tract­ed? (well I guess ear­ly humans were too busy run­ning from wild ani­mals). If you were to sur­vey the world you would find that pro­cras­ti­na­tion has affect­ed a major­i­ty  of peo­ple. myself includ­ed.

It seems so hard today to stay focused so most peo­ple don’t try. I went on YouTube and did a lit­tle exper­i­ment. I exam­ined some chan­nels cre­at­ed to offer self-improve­ment and I observed the num­ber of sub­scribers. Then I exam­ined a gam­ing chan­nel and wow the amount of peo­ple sub­scribed was astro­nom­i­cal com­pared to the self-help chan­nel why is this?

We seem to grav­i­tate to things that serve lit­tle pur­pose (no offense to video games and gamers). In the end what val­ue does play­ing video games give to our lives? Does it cause us to become more enlight­ened? Does it reveal to us the secrets and mys­ter­ies of life? Or is it just all cot­ton can­dy for our minds just there to keep our brains occu­pied? Please let me know.

It seems as though that we all have a strong habit of pro­cras­ti­nat­ing. why can’t we find plea­sure in doing things that are pur­pose­ful and that will make an impact on our world our real world in which we live?

I find that a per­son who pro­cras­ti­nates does not ful­ly know him­self and where he wants to go. Peo­ple who focus tend to have goals that keep them in check and that is what I want to say today.

We are all on the road of life or should I say roads of life because the more dis­tract­ed we become the more we stray from the path.  We all need a road map. Everyone’s road map is dif­fer­ent ‚everyone’s goals are dif­fer­ent. Don’t get lost in the for­est of Pro­cras­ti­na­tion. You may end up wan­der­ing for the rest of your life.

Breaking the procrastination habit

Some of us devel­op habits of putting things off. Habits can be dif­fi­cult to break espe­cial­ly when you reach an elder­ly state. Which is why you must forge good habits from now when you are young because it is hard­er to break the habit the longer you do it. Can you imag­ine if you always put things off? What would you achieve when you were on your deathbed? a bunch of what ifs and I could ofs?

Seize the moment the time is now! it is said that at the end of life it is not the things we did that we gen­er­al­ly regret, it is the things we didn’t do. No one wants to live the last moments of their life in regret. It hol­lows you out makes you feel emp­ty and unful­filled and fills you with despair and that is a sad end to life. I want to die with a smile on my face know­ing I did what I want­ed to do.

The key to stop­ping Pro­cras­ti­na­tion is to know your pur­pose and what do you want to do in life. This is your road map and goals lead the way then habit takes over. You have to make it a habit every day to have goals and fol­low through on those goals. In the end, Pro­cras­ti­na­tion is a habit and it is stopped by replac­ing it with anoth­er habit. The habit of goal set­ting and tak­ing action.

Let me know what you think. Do you agree with this post or do you have anoth­er way of stop­ping Pro­cras­ti­na­tion in your life? Please com­ment or sub­scribe to my list if you found this con­tent valu­able. but only if you did, I wish you a great day and as always stay moti­vat­ed.
