Are you able to achieve most of the goal that you set for yourself? If answer to any of this question is no to you then you have the problem or the habit of procrastination. In this article I will convey some of the basic methods by which you tackle the problem of procrastination.

If you want a more detailed method of how become more productive you should read Getting Thing Done by David Allen it’s a great book it will help you lot in getting yourself more productive by helping you get more systematic in your work and life.

 

What is Procrastination?

What is procrastination anyway? Procrastination is inaction or not tacking the action that are need to be taken or you can say that when you are not donning what you are supposed to do. Procrastination is the not taking action. It can apply to anything from completing you presentation for next business meeting to not cleaning your room. Sometime you feel so overwhelmed by all the work that you have to do that you do nothing at all.

So what can we do to take action? And if everyone has this problem then how is it possible that someone even get anything done. It is not that you can’t do anything about it most of the time you don’t want to do anything. So how to get over it all. Here are some basic tips.

 1. Identify all your current projects

The first thing that you have to do is identify all your projects. Because if all your projects are not clearly defined then it became a problem for you to focus your energy. So a clean sheet of paper or open a word processor then start typing all the things that you think you should do. Like

Write a book

  • Clean the garage
  • Do your taxes
  • Travel the world
  • Learn a new language
  • Exercise
  • Read a book

When you are done with your list. Next thing is you decide what is the action that according to you are important and you want to achieve this month or year. And after that next step will be to determine your action plan.

 2. Determine your action plan

So after you have decided which project you want to focus all your energy for now the next thing that you can do is determine the next logical action that you can take to achieve or get to start with you process of achieving what you want to achieve. Let’s take the previous list and make action set for them so that you can get an idea

  • Create an outline
  • Get started
  • Is the entire document necessary for doing tax available for doing taxes or collect them
  • where can you start you world tour have you seen all the sites that are close to where you live right now make a list of all the site that are close to you

 

This are some of the examples of how you can determine.  So get to it. Now next step is setting time…

 

3. Set Time: The most important step of all

Now when you have decided what you want to do the next thing is that what time you will do it. If the action takes less than 2 min to complete then take the action. If not then set the time in your calendar of specific day and time when you will do this work.

For example you want to write the book and your next action is to create an outline you think it will take you 4 hours to write the outline of the book. You have only one hour to spare every day to this task. So you will set a time in next 4 day an hour a day in your calendar for this task.

One thing that I want to say is only focus on next step and after you have completed that step. Then and only then take time to think of the other steps that are necessary but not before that.

 

4. Take Action

 

How to apply every day?

 

At last I want to talk about how you can apply this four principle every day it will become easy now because you will get focus from you project list as you will focus on the most important one. It takes discipline to focus on one and only one action at time. You can try meditation to increase your power of concentration. All you have to do is take attest one action every day in your given project no big steps is needed the important thing is that you keep going even when you don’t feel like it you should focus all your energy on getting you one action done. Remember even the biggest ocean is just collection of a lots of single tiny drops of water.

The 3 Most Powerful Methods To Become A Creative Genius

Creative people have a tough life. Even after having the skills and potential to make a tremendous impact, the odds are against us. If you are reading this article you are one of the creative types. Creative people simply want more out of life than most. They really desire to find and develop their inner passion and make a living expressing it.

Entrepreneurs, musicians, film-makers, writers, producers, directors, artists, real estate investors, photographers, inventors, and stock pickers are a few good examples. The failure rate is high in all this professions, because there is no clear support system in place to guide people on their path to success.

In my search for happiness, I read the books of successful people before me. I started to learn their secrets. I began to recognize my strengths and weaknesses as a creative person. I learned that there are things that will make a person creative geniuses:

1) Maximize Focus

2) Minimize Resistance

3) Maximize Persistence

 

Focus

Creative people by nature are multi-talented. They tend to be good at different things the problem with juggling a variety of different skills is that it dilutes their focus.

If you concentrate all your energy on one thing that will give you a lot power which will make you really good at that thing. As the principle of 10,000 hours of practice says that you have to practice for 10,000 hours if you want to become a genius in it.

So for example you want to a really good writer you have write in you field for 10,000 hours if you do the calculation if work for 1hr in that given field it will take you 28 Years to become really good at it.

But if you focus all your energy on that single task for example you have 6 hours a day for practice of you skill and at place of doing several different things you focus all your energy on doing one and only one thing then your 10,000 hours will complete in 4 ½ years.

So focus all your time and energy on one and only one single task. You can read about the pricple of 10,ooo hours and many more different things in this great book By Gladwell Malcolm- Outliers, The Story Of Success

 

 

Minimize Resistance

Most of people will not become creative genius because of resistance that they have created around us. The most common form of resistance people experience is debt, but resistance can also come in the form of emotional baggage, social pressure, or lack of confidence.

You have to use your power of focus to get rid of all of them you have to focus on what you can do today and focus on quantity and quality will follow.

The debt is a big problem you can solve this problem by creating a source of passive income that will get rid of your debt and will provide you with a constant source of income to support your passion even if it is not paying your bills right now.

 

Persistence

 

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Calvin Coolidge

So after reading that quote there is nothing I can think of that can explain the importance of persistence.

So in the end all you have to do is keep moving forward, and become unstoppable so that nothing can stop you from becoming a creative genius.

After you have done that look at all the things that take most of your attention. Ascertain that the things that take most of your time are the things that are taking you word your goal or not.

 

 

Consequences

What are the consequences of giving an item your attention vs. withholding your attention? What are you getting or losing from your choice of your actions.

 

Control

 

In addition to consequences, also consider the degree of control you have over a particular concern.

What kind of control you have over your situation, as old saying…

The Buddhist proverb on worrying:

 

“If you have a problem that can be fixed, then there is no use in worrying. If you have a problem that cannot be fixed, then there is no use in worrying.” – Buddhist proverb

 

The Zen saying on worrying:

 

“If the problem has a solution, worrying is pointless, in the end the problem will be solved. If the problem has no solution, there is no reason to worry, because it can’t be solved.” – Zen saying

So put your attention on things that you can change or control at the place of things that are out of your control.

“We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves”

As for long time I am very active in teachings my little sister who to be more responsible and how to achieve your goal but no matter what I tried. Nothing seems to stick she is always doing the old things and following the old patters.

Then I remember this quote from Galileo Galilei I think “We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves”. So all I can do is tell her what is the right thing to do and leave her to it. And let her decide what to do.

It is her life and her responsibility. As it is written in Srimad Bhagavad-Gita that everyone is responsible for all the actions he takes. And it is not my responsibility to live her life for her. She has to make all her choices I can only work as guide.

So are you tired of teaching someone. Always remember this quote.

 

“We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves”

 Galileo Galilei quotes

 

Be the guide done live there life for them. You have to put your faith in them so that they feel motivated and supported and you can always praise them when they are right. Positive support is very necessary you human development and strong personality development.

Power of Thought : THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS

Power of Thought

Power of thoughts your thoughts have the power of get you anything you want out of your life. Your thoughts are like seeds that you grow in your mind that prosper inside of your mind for some time and then get out into the real world.

 

Just like the seed you sow in the land which comes out in the form of plant in this world after prospering into land for some time. So what you have to do, so that your seed become a full tree. You have to water it, nurture it and remove any weeds that grow around it so that it can get all the nutrition that the land has to offer.

 

In the same way you have to nature your thought you must get rid of all those negative thought that grow like weeds in your mind and hamper growth of your thought. Get rid of those negative thoughts so your thought can grow into reality. You have to nurture your thought by continues repetition of thought at least three times a day.

When you start repeating your thoughts every day they will become a burning desire and you will be set to achieve it.

 

 

Have a specific thought

 

You should be very specific about what you want from your life. Power of thoughts will work in your favor if only you focus all your energy on one thing and you will get the result that you desire only if you focus all your energy on one thing.

So if you want to retire young you should specify what is the amount of money that you will want as passive income (i.e. the money we get out thing that you worked on ones and pay you for a long time like books, music etc.) to retire with. My goal is $10,000 per month of passive income when I reach this goal I will retire.

What will I do when retired I will visit place like Paris and stay there for six month and feel what is it like to wake up there?

What do you want to do when you retire? How much it will cost you to do it. Do your math and make a goal to achieve it fast as possible because life is short and you never know. It can change in a movement and you will not be the person you know.

WHY TO LIVE A SIMPLE LIFE WITH LESS POSSESSION IS A GOOD IDEA?

Simple Life

Credits : Times.com

If you have simple life with less material things. The first thing that you will experience is abundance of money as you stop wasting money on things that are not necessary but you buy them just to impress people.

For example any electronic item that you purchase should have a life span of at least 4 years. When you start making you life simple you will worry less. Because of freedom that you got from working less due to reduction in your expenses. And as you save more time and money you start creating many sources of income which will provide you with more opportunity.

So you should invest at lest 30 % of you salary in any type of investment that you are interest in and you should know about that type of investment well.

Knowledge is power most successful people have more that average intelligence in there give field. What that mean is they know more about there field then an average Joe.

So if you want to make money on internet then learn about it. First start with free resources and the most important thing you should start working from where are you right now.

 

How can you make you life simple and with less material things?

 

3 Steps to simple and easy life

 Divide 7

If you want to find out how much cloth you need there is a simple thing that you can do. First find out how much cloth you have then divide it by seven then you will have the cloth you need for your life. Why you should have less cloths? Because if you have less cloth you need less closet space and you can change you style very fast. Because you have to change very little amount of cloths.

You will have more freedom because you will have a pair of cloths up ready for every day.

 

6 Month No Touch

Second method you can use to see what is necessary for you right now is six month rule where you will get rid of things that you have not touched in six month. A good practice will be that every six months you will clean your house you will get through all the things that you have and didn’t touched in previous six month you will get rid of all of them.

I know from my experience that this practice is very hard and you will need a lot of will power to do this but as you start doing it on a continues basis you will feel a sense of relief and freedom that you will get from getting all your stuff sorted.

 

See Below Your Level

If you think that your success is defined by the things that you own then think again you are not the sum of things that you have you are more than that.

If you feel that you don’t have enough things then think about the person that have less money then you and be grateful for all the things that you have.

Having only the things that needed you will get freedom do more of what you are really passionate about because you don’t need more money now.

 

Less Time Cleaning Up

As you have less things you need to clean up less often. I was able to reduce my cloths that really make my closet clean and it take me only 10 minutes a week to arrange all of it.

I still have problem giving up my books that’s why how much I arrange them it still look a mess. I am forcing myself to reduce them.
