How Do I Immediately Stop Bloody Procrastinating!

#UnblockYourPeople 

We all procrastinate from time to time.

However, why do we do it on the really important things?

Why don't we make that crucial decision or take that vital action that we KNOW IS GOOD FOR US?

The psychology that drives procrastination is deeper than you think.

We all can easily understand that we would procrastinate over something that bores us.

Or makes us

confront something scary or unknownthat might get us judged or criticised or where we might make a costly mistakeor when we might lose our time and money

OUR BRAINS ARE WIRED TO AVOID RISK AND PREVENT LOSS AND PAIN

On the surface, the reason seems simple. 

Avoid pain, risk, fear and loss.

BUT, THIS IS NOT THE END OF THE PROCESS

We try to avoid these things so

YOU CAN BE HAPPY

Procrastination is a HAPPINESS STRATEGY!

If you don't act, you can't failIf you don't fail, you can be happy.

But, if you are thinking"But I'm not happy. I am failing because I'm not doing what I know I should!"

You need to ask different questions.

What will make you truly happy?

Getting it done or putting it off?

If you need help, MESSAGE ME NOW (Or leave it a while, 12 years is the record).
