It’s hard to find time to do the things that you want to do.You have projects, hobbies, work, and relaxation to balance, and that’s no easy task.
There just aren’t enough hours in the day (even with the extra boost from OptiMind, it’s hard to keep up).
When you schedule your day, the things that make you feel anxious or stressed often get pushed aside.
That’s just a fancy way of saying everyone procrastinates, even you.
You’re not doing it on purpose. It’s human psychology to avoid stressful situations.
It’s a hard cycle to break, but you don't need to live that way. You can live your best life.
How do you make the change? This list is a great way to start.
1. Avoid “Mood Repair”
Mood repair seems like a pretty nice phrase, but it’s a trick. When you prioritize your mood at the moment, you don't do the stressful things that might hurt your mood, even if they’re necessary. Don’t fall into the comfort trap. When you push yourself to do the uncomfortable, stressful thing, you grow, expand your limits, and make it a little easier the next time.
2. Find Opportunities To Grow
No matter who you are, there are some tasks that make you anxious, nervous or stressed out. The thing is, those feelings come from you. There’s something there that triggers stress for you. Once you figure out what that is, you can isolate it and work to make sure you’re in a place where it won’t slow you down anymore.
3. Make Your List
Every day, for 30 days, start by writing down three things you should do, but you really don’t want to. Once you have those written down, make like Nike and just do it. Like anything else, overcoming the impulse to procrastinate takes practice, but once you acquire that skill there’ll be nothing standing in your way.
It’s a lot of work, but it’s worth the effort. Once you unlock your potential, you’ll see amazing results.
