Can You Overcome Procrastination?

One of the many challenges of life is the ability to complete tasks in a timely manner. This ability varies widely from person to person, and also depends much upon how much we may need to depart from our comfort zone. Can you overcome procrastination? Well, let’s find out.  Overcoming Procrastination

In any event, this can be an issue which gets in the way of us realizing many of our desires and dreams. It is at this point that it is wise to evaluate a few things, and determine whether we should make some changes.

Stuck in Inertia

Being stuck in inertia is similar to having your vehicle stuck in the mud or snow and have your wheels spinning and getting nowhere. This is when you can be very busy doing things but making very little progress toward your goals. You are going nowhere in a very quick and efficient way.

In order to address and handle this inertia thing, it is important to discover the cause of the resistance which is in your way of achieving all of your intended objectives. Why are you not doing what is necessary to get the results you want?

Just by asking “why” we put ourselves in a position to “need to know”. It is no longer something pushed aside or buried within. We are asking for answers, and with enough patience we will get them.

It is just too easy to take it for granted that we cannot succeed, or there are all these bulls*** reasons to back it up. When we question ourselves with asking “why”, we throw a monkey wrench so to speak into our proverbial excuse machine, and it starts to break down. Not only do we not come up with all these creative excuses, but we get to the point of not wanting to use them anymore. As a friend from the past once told me, “when you need an excuse you don’t have to be fussy about it, as any old one will do”.  Inertia

So we have now begun the process of getting unstuck, and we continue to ask “why” until we get the answers we desire which will get us moving. Now we are actually thinking in terms of what it takes to get the results we want, and we are beginning to feel differently about the whole process.

Losing The Inertia

Now rather than being stuck we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We are more relaxed and able to recognize what is going on within ourselves. This leads to many realizations of what has kept us stuck and how to let it all go. We begin to release the energy blocks which have kept us going around in circles.

The “why” process brings up a lot of data which we will recognize as false, when only a few moments before we took for granted as being a solid part of our reality and an indisputable fact. When we are able to get outside ourselves and take an exterior view of things, we get a picture of how silly we have acted, and how that has contributed to our present dilemma.

This is when the whole structure of false data begins to crumble, and is replaced with more life enhancing thoughts and feelings, which actually propel us effortlessly to our desired destination. Lots of stuff will come up which just needs to be observed. It is not necessary to react or try to figure stuff out. This is meant to be an eye-opening and educational experience into the inner workings of our minds.

Once more and more of this life-draining garbage of false data is removed, we will feel lighter and lighter, and be able to use that energy which has been “stuck” in much more productive ways. It is like removing a lead weight off of our backs.

Living Life on Your Terms An expanded life

When you reach this point in the process, you are now free to make different choices. Choices which simply were not available to you before because they were not on your radar to make, since your head was full of so much false data which offered only limiting choices at best.

At this point, you are able to Procrastinate by Design. This is a conscious process of being aware of your choices, and to utilize procrastination for your benefit. You ask a question, and then you are “productively waiting'” for an answer from your intuition. This can lead to many interesting and productive discoveries, and plus you are not forcing anything. You are allowing the answer to surface at the right time and in the right way.

So now we are playing with a new deck of cards. We are able to engage in life in much more creative ways. We are not worried about the results because they are a given, arriving at the right time and way. What a refreshing way to live life, on your terms only.

Of course this also requires the ability to say “no”, and set up appropriate boundaries. When being distracted and being pushed this way and that, there is no way to stay focused long enough to generate the proper energy to complete a task efficiently, so that it brings you closer to your goal. It is so important to be “divinely selfish” so that you are then in a position to offer proper help and value to others.

Living life on your terms puts you where you need to be, when you need to be there, without any strain and effort. You find that when you are “divinely selfish” you are also “divinely guided” as well. This is a form of truly going with the flow.

Breaking It All Down

If you are thinking this is all easier said than done you are right. Just realizing all this is not enough. It requires a change of thought which will result in a change of habits. When that is done, new results eventually materialize. Breaking it down into a few steps turns the complexity of all this into the simplicity of all this.

Keeping it simple will get you there, which is actually here with a new state of mind. Being totally clear on what you desire provides the fuel. When there is something which excites you, you are much more willing to exit your comfort zone to get it. By creating a clear picture of what that is and who we are in those circumstances, will provide the impetus to keep us on track regardless of the challenges along the way.

Know what you want, have a clear picture of it, and keep that picture going for as long as is needed to convince yourself that is who you Are. With your energy focused in this way, it is only a matter of time before you  attain it. It’s one of those Universla Laws which kicks in to bring this all about.

At this point procrastination is a thing of the past. When you ask yourself, “can you overcome procrastination?”, the answer will be a definite “Yes”. And you will absolutely know that you are not lying to yourself, but experiencing a whole new way of life brought about by a whole new viewpoint which you have put in place. Enjoy!

  1. To be honest reading your article was a true motivation for me today. Just like you mentioned most of us suffer from Inertia. Trying to do some work but not really getting it started or doing it in a slow pace. You explained how to overcome it and find ways for our success.

    Thank you so much for the motivation.

  2. Hello, Joseph.

    What can I say, procrastination is probably my BIGGEST headache.  It’s the one thing I struggle with the most.  

    Your post has given me some helpful information and I will have to read it again to get it all.

    I especially like your quote.  It really says it all.  We will look for any excuse even if it doesn’t make any sense at all.

    Fear of failure?  I’m not worthy? I don’t have what it takes?  I don’t have enough time?  I’m not smart enough?  These are all “lies” we tell ourselves (and there are more) to try and justify our lack of success, that “I” tell myself.

    You speak the truth.  This is a hard thing to overcome and just writing about it frustrates me.

    Anyway, I know that changes need to be made and the first one is my thinking.  I know in my head that there is no reason why I can’t have success with my two websites.  What I don’t know is how to get that into my heart. So… I will re-read your post and ?

    1. Thanks Wayne.  I appreciate your comments.  Just being persistent in addressing this issue will get you much progress down the path until you have your “breakthrough moment”.  All the Best.

  3. I am a huge procrastinator! I don’t like being a procrastinator, it wastes a lot of my valuable time. I will do almost anything—even other work—to put off the things that I am supposed to be doing. I have done the dishes or cleaned the bathroom or any number of other tasks just to avoid writing a blog post or doing some writing for work. I do not yet have an answer as to why I do this. I will keep asking, though, because as clean as our house is because of all the cleaning I do while in avoidance, I still need to get the work done!

    Thank you for this enlightening post!

  4. The concept of being stuck in inertia is very interesting. I had not thought of it in that way. I am always asking “why” and trying to find ways to improve and move forward. I see people who just refuse to try anything new and it is hard for me to understand. If they are not happy with where they are why don’t they look for a way to change it?

    I see from your explanation here that they are stuck in the inertia of their own lives. Even if they are not happy with the direction it is going they don’t think there is a way to change it so they just let it continue down the same path. 

    I have experienced many times where I was stuck to some degree and suddenly I get an inspiration to change something and feel so much better! It is like a weight is lifted because now I can see a new and brighter path forward and I am no longer tied to the path that had turned into a mud pit of stagnant immobility. 

    This concept is great! I just hadn’t put it all together in one definable explanation like this. I practiced it but could not define it. I still need to apply this in other areas of life and will continue to do so with this great example in mind. 

    Thanks!

  5. I really like the article. You really bring out the real person inside someone and make them realize who they are and what they are able to achieve. It really made me see what I needed to focus on to over come my obstacles and be able to move above it all and get the things done that I need to get done.

    Thank You,
    George

  6. We will be surprised at the many ideas and other things that never happened because people procrastinate. Dreams which never came to past, this word called procrastination is a dream killer so let’s get out of our comfort zone and make it happen. Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. Thanks Norman for your comments. It is so important to follow your heart and ignore your mind when it tells us we can’t do something. All the very Best.
