Call it Law of Attraction doing its magic again; while I was looking through an article shared by a friend through Facebook yesterday (I don’t normally scan through FB so in depth, and I hardly see this friend’s posts on my news feed), I thought this article was quite apt: How to Pick Your Life Partner. Seems like quite an interesting read! So I went in to check out on the article, and I saw this word in blue: procrastination. Great! It may just be the perfect article for the never-dying procrastinator like me!
So I spent almost an hour in total reading the 2-part article today, and found it really useful! I’ve to say the writer literally dissects the brain and mechanism of a procrastinator’s thought process, to the most minute detail I’ve seen by far. It’s as if he’s penning down my every thought and feeling, sometimes I’m even unaware that such a thought actually existed in my mind! I’m totally surprised and impressed with the level of details. Here are some key takeaways for me (original text from article in blue):
The procrastinator ultimately sells himself short. He ends up underachieving and fails to reach his potential, which eats away at him over time and fills him with regret and self-loathing.
I can’t express how strongly I feel for this statement. What’s the point of having so much potential inside me when I do not even activate a single bit of it and use it to my advantage? Work it, tap into my potential and my life will just sparkle!
Procrastination: the action of ruining your own life for no apparent reason
Yes, a procrastinator is a plain stupid idiotic retarded moron. Stop being so stupid, no one is going to pity me for being stupid! URGH!
A remarkable, glorious achievement is just what a long series of unremarkable, unglorious tasks looks like from far away. No one “builds a house.” They lay one brick again and again and again and the end result is a house.
Consistency and perseverance are the building blocks to success. And consistency seems to always be my weakness. Improve it day by day, bit by bit.
It makes no sense to leave the Dark Woods in favor of the Dark Playground—they’re both dark. They both suck to be in, but the big difference is the Dark Woods leads to happiness and the Dark Playground leads only to more misery.
2 choices: either I choose to “enjoy” the current moment of not doing anything (which isn’t exactly enjoyable as well), or I choose to put in actions which I know are useful for my future and lead me to my happiness. Be wise, always choose the one which will lead me to happiness.
You need to prove to yourself that you can do it.
Come’on baby, let’s do this together! Kill procrastination, take up immediate actions!
285 more days for me to rock this awesome year and make wise choices leading down the path of happiness and freedom!
