About Do It Today: Overcome Procrastination, Improve Productivity, and Achieve More Meaningful Things Book

Are you also tired of putting off your dreams until "tomorrow?" Guess what! Tomorrow never comes. Am I right?

I've procrastinated and putt off my desire to write a book for a decade. I always came up with excuses like, "it's not the right time." Or, "I need to do more research."

But in 2015 I got tired of this endless procrastination, and finally took action. Six months later, my first book was published.

Look, we all have limited time on our hands. And we're getting closer to death every single minute. That shouldn't scare. That should motivate you!

Time is limited, that's why we must do the things we want: Today.

In this "best of" collection, I've handpicked 30 of my best articles that help you to overcome procrastination, improve your productivity, and achieve all the things you always wanted.

Plus, I've written an extensive introduction about my life and work philosophy.

And I've made many improvements and edits to the articles. So the content of this book is different from the articles on my site.

In Do It Today, you'll learn:

1.Why we procrastinate and how we can overcome it

2.How to increase your productivity without being stressful

3.How to achieve more meaningful things in your life so you can enjoy it more

Are you ready to start reading this book?

If so: Do it today--not tomorrow.

Do It Today: Overcome Procrastination, Improve Productivity, and Achieve More Meaningful Things by Darius Foroux
Darius Foroux

"What you do today determines where you will be in a year, two years, and even ten years from now. Every single day, we keep on doing things that we don’t desire. I’m not talking about paying the bills or cleaning your toilet. I’m talking about how you invest the majority of your time. The time that sums up your life."

Do small things every single day, they add up

Do small things every single day, they add up

It’s easy to read an article or listen to some advice and apply it for a day. But that’s useless. We only make real progress and achieve big things by doing small things every single day.

When you do the little things every day, they add up. And over time, they form big things like a strong body & mind, self-reliance, a large investment portfolio, and so forth.

Harmful things add up too

When you complain every day, eat junk food, and never work out, those things add up too. That’s how we become miserable. You almost never hear about how one single moment destroyed a person’s life. Of course, tragedies happen. But for the majority of us, we simply let life slip away from us. We decide not to do it today. Because “what’s the point?” Well, here’s the point: Life is good if you know how to live it.

Do it Today, not Tommorow

If you want to climb the corporate ladder, you have to form alliances, be strategic, outperform your targets, and be great at what you do.

How to Beat Procrastination

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.

Willpower Doesn’t Work. Systems Do. What you really need is a system for doing work. A lot of people shy away from routines, systems and frameworks because they want to have “freedom.” I’m sorry to disappoint you: Freedom is your enemy. The fact is that, if you want to get things done, you need rules.

Habits of Unproductive People

You can’t be productive 24/7. And a big part of being productive is about getting rid of unproductive habits we all have.

I always thought that learning stops when you get out of school. But the truth is: Your life stops when learning stops. Invest in yourself. Learn something. Read books. Get courses. Watch videos. Do it from home or go places. It doesn’t matter. Just learn new things. You’ll be more productive and more excited about life.

Some effective tips to destroy procrastination

  1. Self-imposed deadlines.
  2. Accountability systems ( Commitment with friends, or a coach).
  3. Working/studying in intervals.
  4. Exercising 30 minutes a day.
  5. A healthy diet.
  6. Eliminating distractions.
  7. And most importantly: Internal motivation.

Right productivity tactics.

The deadlines create urgency, accountability will create responsibility, working in intervals improves your focus, exercising will give you more energy, so does a healthy diet, and eliminating distractions will take away the temptations.

But there's no system that can help you if you don't have an inner drive.

Introduction

Life doesn't stop. And every single second we're getting closer to death.

We are our actions. And our actions reveal our character.

What you do today determines where you will be in the future.

The recipe for a good life is: Get clear on what you want and eliminate everything else from your life.

Overcoming Procrastination

Overcoming Procrastination

We know what we have to do, but we don't do it. We prefer to escape work and that's at the core of procrastination.

Rely on a system to avoid procrastination.

  • Improve mental toughness with Stoicism, Pragmatism and Mindfulness
  • Exercise every day.
  • Control your life with your daily habits. Eliminate all bad habits and only concentrate on good habits.
  • Set a small list of important tasks to complete everyday

It takes time to develop and use such a system to become productive. Make sure to tweak the system according to your needs and priorities and let it help you build your life.

Do it TODAY, not tomorrow

DO IT TODAY by Darius Foroux

A really good book

Must read if you wanna get stuff done but aren't able to.

DARIUS FOROUX

If you want to be productive, the most important thing is consistency.

Productivity is not about eureka moments, your big break, pulling off all-nighters, or drinking Red Bull all day. If you want to achieve things in your life, it’s about aiming for daily progress.

Things That Make You Productive

I thought of you when I read this quote from "Do It Today: Overcome Procrastination, Improve Productivity, and Achieve More Meaningful Things" by Darius Foroux -

Always Cut To The Chase

"With everything in life, there’s a bunch of crap, and there’s stuff that matters. Chit chat, small talk, delaying, waiting around, not speaking up, is all useless. If you want to get shit done, you have to jump straight into the action."

Things That Make You Productive

Create Routines

Decisions fatigue your brain. And routines eliminate decisions. Which ultimately means more brainpower. Routines are not OCD — they are efficient. Use them.

4

This will give us a thought about our own phycology and let us aware about reality which help us to grow in life.

Perfectionism Is Not Good

Don't be a perfectionist and don't be a slacker be something in between which is called resourcefulness, the balance.

2

Time

You can't manage your time. You can manage your attention.

2

Don't Worry To Much

Life is too short for worrying the things that never gonna happen and if something bad happen do something about it and solve it

Tommorow is an Illusion ! !

Sooner or later we have to get know this bitter truth.

Tommorow is an illusion to getting rid of our work.

Following are one of my favourite lines :-

" you know what i am the best and i will do my best in my work ".

these lines are helping me alot to accomplish my goals.

Remember never dream your goal instead of this dream your goal pathway.

And yeah, there is a time when human get frustrated of what he's doing but push yourself.

Push against your mind's instructions, push against your body's illness, push against your laziness, you'll see there's hope called " will ".
