Unstable disorder

In this article we talk about how to overcome procrastination and why it happens on the first place.


Overcoming procrastination

Procrastination appears just at the moment when you have to or need to do something that you actually do not want to do. Or just do not like.

And we do not want and do not like work which we do not understand. Or do not consider to be important. Or do not feel urgent to start with already. Or think it is too complicated to accomplish.

That’s when the magic mantra of “it can wait till tomorrow” comes to the rescue. The main deal with tomorrow is that “tomorrows” keeps becoming “todays”. And one day you will eventually run out of “tomorrows”.

You will deal with “yesterdays” instead. Like, yesterday was the last day and you have not even started. Since you did not like this work and did not want to do it.


Stable task management.

Feeling guilty of being a “bad boy” or a “bad girl” is not the main issue with procrastination. Procrastination destroys tempo and settles you into the pattern of constant disorder.

You can be a bright person with shining perspectives, but if you are unstable, you can basically kiss all your dreams goodbye. Most likely you will be struggling with the mere existence. And paying your rent might become a challenging task to accomplish.

But if you are still in mood to have your work done, then understanding the principle of constant time shortage and dividing your tasks into step-by-step algorithms will definitely stabilize your tempo and raise productivity.


Unstable Employment

Another factor of constantly pushing your work to the days of “tomorrow” is our natural mental volatility. Which can be particularly easily detected in the morning time.

In the morning we always wake up in a different mood. Sometimes we feel dizzy, sometimes lazy. And sometimes we wake up only because our cats want us to.

It is a bit simpler when you are an employee. Since you are organized by people which pay your salary. You have obligations and liabilities, settled for you by them. And if you get late for your work, you might get fined or prosecuted in a psychological way.

You might even feel guilty that while all your co-workers are already busy with hard and honest work, you are wasting company money by not showing up to the office on time.

Besides that, you might get fired and lose means for living. And you will not be able to buy food for your cat. This kind of perspective definitely provides some additional portion of unhealthy motivation, doesn’t it?


Stable Entrepreneurship.

With entrepreneurs, it all works differently. You are the boss. You have an unlimited working time routine. Meaning that you are not limited to when to start or to finish your work. You are not chained to a “9:00-18:00” routine like some average employee.

So if you wake up and you are not in the mood for a work, then you might have a holiday today. Who cares that it is Tuesday and you had a holiday on Monday too. Maybe this week is not astrologically settled for work at all.

It is only that if you keep holidaying for a bit too long you might end up with an unstable employment situation we described above. Logic is simple. Maybe it is you who can live in a permanent disorder, but your business cannot. It is a moving train, remember?


Efficient work organization.

Nothing works better than repeating an obvious thought twice:

Keep in mind the principle of constant time shortage and divide your tasks into step-by-step algorithms.

This will be the simplest advice.

And how do you deal with morning mental volatility? You focus and concentrate.

Your life is only 16 hours, sister. So wake up, think about the events of the upcoming day and start working already.
