What is procastination. Well procastination is when you say i'm going to do something and you really are focussed on doing that something, but then at the very last minute before you do that thing which you planned to do,you find something else more easier to do, such as doing nothing. That is procastination, The intention and desire to do something but at the very last moment you open a trap door, and escape with an excuse, that seems reasonable to yourself and you abandon the misson for an easier option which as i said before is to do nothing.

Procastination is a diease or rather a habit that can bring your world to a stand still. Procastination, you must realise is something that is always with us, no matter how proactive you are there will be times when your dormant procastination gene will kick into action and tell you, hey buddy you take a rest you're a guy/gal that works hard all day you need a rest that thing which you must do, you need to do , you can do it later, there's no hurry take your time. And so you convince yourself that you know what my subconscience is right i am hard working i do need a rest(even though you may have done nothing all day) so i guess i will take a rest and tommorow for definite i will get my mission done, that is how procastination works.

Procastination is when you convince yourself( with good arguments) to do nothing or take an easier option rather than getting the job at hand done.

So how do we beat procastination, well to beat procastination you have to overcome those rational arguments in your mind THAT CONVINCE YOU TO DO NOTHING, you have to shut out all other thoughts ideas, arguments , plans that come into your mind and focus on the goal at hand. This is very important, procastination and distractions are like first cousins they are very close to each other they , you could say they almost help each other in helping you to achieve nothing.

Remember in order to beat procastination you have to out think yourself, you have to shut out your distractions, come back to them at a later time, make plans that incorporate your excuse that incorprorate your distractions, so when the time comes to do the mission at hand you can say to yourself, hey i have made time for you guys and i will give you my time but not just now i'm slightly busy but i promise will catch up with you guys later, That is a method that will help you beat procastination.

So the task for today is right down one thing that you must do something that you know that you have to do, but you have convinced yourself i will do it some other time. Well today is that day right that one task that you have been putting of for ages to do, today is the day you will do it , remember this is your one and only mission for today, after this mission you can take it easy , why because you have completed your mission you have done your job for the day. YOU HAVE ACHIEVED well done.
