Today a bit later as before posting anything I’ve decided to take a nap. So I can write something more, than just summary. So here I am. A bit late, but stil acceptable 😉
Today I’ve learn very important lesson and I would like to share it with you. As I suppouse, most of us knew it already. We had that quiet voice in our heads, saing to us, when procrastination wins with us: “Well, maybe we can just do it now?”. You think, you don’t have it? Well, of course you do. You just can’t hear this wisper from among procrastination’s screamings.
But let me tell you something about this voice. Let’s leave procrastination for the other time. So this voice, it is our inside warrior. We all have it. The only problem, we haven’t feed it so much as we did procrastination (about feeding our inside, I’ve red in one book, but I can’t remember which one).
Usually we let our procrastination win. Actualy, it becomes our habit. Something very natural. And whenever we need to get this huge project done, or learn for tomorrow’s test, or anything else, what in fact is very important to us, out of a sudden, we realise: “Hey, it’s been a long time, since I’ve played this video game last time” or “Well, work can be done after this movie. I will still have a lot of time till morning, won’t I?”.
And here is our warrior’s job. He is suppoused to convience you, that the best way is to get your things done now. Right away. He is actualy trying to do so. Do you know this kind of thoughts: “Maybe I’ll be to tired, after watching this movie?”. That’s him.
He is very weak creature, with low self-esteem. He got used to failing and now, even he doesn’t believe in success.
But let’s come back to feeding. In one of the books I’ve red, that every of us has two personalities of some kind: good one and bad one. Whichever of them we are feeding (means doing good or bad things) this is becoming stronger and, as a result, we are behaving according to the winer.
Similar is here. If we will let procrastination win most of the time, we are going to procrastinate more likely next time. It’s becoming our habit within no time.
But if we would let our warrior win more often, it would actualy make getting things done much easier in the future.
In one of articles on the internet I’ve red, that procrastination is some kind of addiction. First you are procrastinating and you are sure you have it under control. And within no time you realise, that this is actualy huge problem. That you don’t know when starting any job became hard like trying to climb Mount Everest.
So my advise is, to let your warrior win sometimes. Even if this is very hard. Just imagine how free you will become when activities, you are suppoused to be doing now, will actualy be done now how much time to spare you’ll get after finishing it. And just do, whatever needs to be done.
Ok, and with this positive thought I am going to finish today’s post.
