Key Ideas

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.

Money Doesn’t Motivate

Many people think money alone will be enough to motivate them, and whilst that may do so initially, it’s very hard to sustain financial motivation if the work you are doing actually drags.

Procrastinate Wisely

Procrastination gives you a break which is a good thing for your brain

If you become distracted, it can be your brain’s signals that you should have a break. However, if you procrastinate all the time and don’t accomplish your daily tasks, it means that you should change something.

Change Your Routine Location

A new place makes your brain work in a fresh way and you’ll achieve the necessary results faster.

Our brain can get used to a routine, even to places and you work on autopilot. Of course, you’ll accomplish your tasks but they will not be creative.

Think big, act small

Never let anything hold you back when you think of ideas.

You’ve got nothing to lose. Just make sure you act small. Put in the work and stay practical.

Problems are unanswered questions

Every time you experience stress over a problem, you’re basically sabotaging your life.

A problem is nothing but an unanswered question. So stay calm. And figure out the answer.

Heidi Grant Halvorson
Check your readiness

Learning a new skill takes commitment. And there are certain limits to what you can learn. So, before starting working on a new skill, ask yourself:

  • If your goal really is attainable
  • How much time and energy you can give to this process.
Make sure it’s needed

Make sure the skills you've chosen are relevant to your career, your organization, or both. 

Gaining a new skill is an investment and you need to know upfront what the return will be.
