Self Improvement

30 STASHED IDEAS

Procrastination is an emotion regulation problem, not a time management problem

Procrastination manifests from a failure to regulate negative emotions. This is your brain’s coping mechanism to protect you from a perceived threat in the present. 

Maybe you’re feeling anxious, bored, frustrated, resentful, or insecure about a pressing task, so you avoid confronting those negative emotions by, say, doing some housework instead.

You’re Choosing To Live The Way You Live Right Now

We are responsible for the life we’re living right now. If your life is boring, you have the power to make changes.

Feeling helpless won’t be beneficial in the long term. So instead, make the decision to take ownership and choose the things that will transform your life into something that you're enjoying and cherishing.

Part I
  1. Stress + Rest = Growth. Decades of research in exercise science show that this is how you get stronger and faster, and the latest cognitive science shows that this is also how you get smarter and more creative.
  2. Focus on the Process, Not Results. Research shows that concentrating on the process is best for both performance and mental health. 
  3. Stay Humble. If you don’t maintain an open mind, you’ll severely limit your opportunities to learn and make progress.
  4. Build Your Tribe. A large and growing body of behavioral science research shows that motivation (or lack thereof) is contagious.
