You keep on telling yourself that you’ll take that next step towards your dreams…
Keep on waiting and your dream will be dead.
It’ll be too late.
All because you wanted to wander off into YouTube for a “quick funny video.”
Sure, it seems harmless because it’s only for a couple of minutes.
What about when you do this every day?
What if you can’t control your impulse and those couple of minutes of procrastination evolve into an hour and a half.
The time spent on procastination should’ve been used for your own progress towards your goals.
When you sit down at your desk to complete your work does it take you a while before you start “getting into the zone?”
- Browse social media
- Check your email three times
- Get distracted by text messaging
40 minutes pass and then you decide to get to work?
In between your work…don’t tell me you do the same thing. Why in the world would you trap yourself by “taking breaks” every 10 or 15 minutes by putting yourself in a position to distract yourself?
Can you imagine if you did this in the middle of a workout?
You cheat yourself by taking an extended rest period because you’re too busy checking your phone…
What about if you’re browsing social media RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of your bench press?
It sounds ridiculous, but envision yourself doing the same thing when you have to write a report or complete a math set.
Turn off your phone while you work.
YouTube and your social media profiles will still be there after you’re finished.
Don’t lay down on your bed while you have to complete reading or write up an assignment.
Go into a room designated for your work so you can get into the zone.
If you dress up for success at your job, do the same regardless if you’re working at home.
Find an accountability partner for your school work, just as you would for a gym partner.
Go to the library if you have to where everyone can see your computer screen. You’ll be less tempted to goof off if you know you’ll look like the only one doing it.
