Procrastinating Is Not Always Bad

It doesn’t mean that you should procrastinate all the time as you want

If you’re working on a project, for example, schedule an alarm every 2 hours and relax for about 15 minutes. But don’t spend all your free time on unproductive activities: do exercise for your body and for eyes, go for a walk or have a meal if it’s needed.

Don’t Tell Anybody About Your Plans

When you tell someone about your goal, you already feel partially satisfied because you start thinking that you’ve done some steps on the way towards your goal.

Plus, some of the people you tell might demotivate you.

Stop the Negative Self-talk

Recall your thoughts during the day. 

For example, when you receive a compliment about your work, you think, “Oh, that’s nothing.” And this is a problem, you can estimate your work objectively, we are all inclined to think about ourselves only in a bad way. Just silence your inner critic and start thinking that you can improve your life.

Don’t Criticize Others

Align with criticizing ourselves, we also like to criticize others. We judge and label other people so quickly, even if we don’t know them.

If you want to lower the level of negative thoughts, stop comparing yourself to others.

When our brains equate learning and work

If we are learning for work, then in our brains learning equals work. So we think we have to do it during the day, at our workplace.

We think that walking is not learning. It’s ‘taking a break’. We instinctively believe that reading is learning. Having discussions about what you’ve read, however, is often not considered work, again it’s ‘taking a break’.

Self-sabotage can appear in our lives under many shapes:

  • procrastination: putting off what we should be doing now
  • substance abuse: consuming alcohol and drug often leads to us not reaching our goals
  • chronic lateness: this will usually result in you being perceived as a not so trustworthy person
  • stress eating: we all know the end of this one- poor diet or even illness
  • intimacy and commitment issues: the negative consequence refers to you ending up alone.
