If we were to be honest we all can admit to procrastinating at one point or another. It is just our nature and something easy to fall into given the chaotic state most of our lives function in. The reason it can result in catastrophic problems is that it moves in patterns or stage-like waves which we can be unaware of what we are doing to where we end up putting off more and more to the point where it effects the quality of our finished product whatever it may be. Below are some personal tips learned through trial and error...
- EXERCISE Not only helps release good endorphins in the body that build confidence, mental/physical strength and contribute to our overall well being but leads us to be more driven throughout our week. Nothing can keep you motivated and on track with deadlines and goals than a great workout session.
- ALARMS! Setting your own personal deadlines/reminders at least 48 hours prior to things that need final completion or your attention. We have smart phones so let them be just that...SMART. Apple IOS makes it very easy with the onboard calendar app.
- WAKING UP 45 min before needed. An obvious statement but how many people can honestly say they do this? Learning to make this a pattern sets you ahead of the game of those who don't make this a ritual and prepares you to make time if needed for things such as worser traffic than the usual, flat tire, gas up, coffee stop etc. Also showing up early has never reflected negatively on anyone.... ever.
- PATTERNS Form around everything we do. The "21 day to form or break a habit" has never been proven but the simple principal behind this is if you do something long enough it will most likely form a habit which is true with procrastination being one of them which is why it is vital to be aware.
As always Cheers!
Sometimes it is good to put your thoughts down on paper or in text. In a way it allows you to step outside of your mind and have a conversation with it. We have so complicated the way we live whether it is technology, jobs, bills, relationships etc. that it is only a matter of time before we all go crazy as a whole. Wondering what this write is about or where it is going lol? This is just a friendly reminder that we are what we are… Human. Which means that we can’t possible be anything else so when you’re so overwhelmed you think you couldn’t possibly handle anymore make sure to have something or somewhere that brings that peace back that enables you to press through. It is amazing if you start asking people what they like to do and the first thing they mention is their family or their job which are definitely great things but do not lose sight of the things personally in your life that bring you balance. Never let age set you back from your passions. There is not an age restriction or cutoff for example; picking up a guitar and trying to write a song or dressing how you want to dress. Don’t be confined by societies expectations for where you should be by your life’s time period when you’re right where you should be in that moment. Recently was conversing with someone who let’s them self get held back from greatness and success because the fear of these false expectations of what the “right thing” is to do based on where your peers are. You just have to free yourself and your thoughts to run the risk of failure. Failure is viewed so much as a negative word but it actually is the last page of the last chapter before there is a crisp fresh page in a new chapter that waits to be written and you are the author. Believe in yourself and others will too… To end this thought and since RebelRitual.com is exactly what it is and we aren’t here to do anything else but post what we feel means something let us end this with 3 old school punk rock songs that kick ass. Cheers.
