Once upon a time, a man created a list. On this list are the goals and task he needed to fulfill in order to be successful in life. It was very well created, a great list. But that man neither finish that list nor did he became successful.
You see that story was about me. I diagnosed myself as a chronic procrastinator and if there’s a title for that, I would have earned it. It affected both my professional and personal life to a point that it is considered as self-sabotage.
They say that once procrastination becomes your lifestyle it would affect every domain of your existence. You will miss opportunities, lose jobs and have a more complicated life. Some even get fat like me. The sad thing is I didn’t take this behavior seriously and I’m at the point now where I’m using it as an excuse to avoid change.
What I realize is that a list or a planner isn’t the solution on how to become not-a-procrastinator person. We, the procrastinators know too well how to plan and manage time, albeit differently. I often used time pressures as a panic button to get everything done within a short period and then blurting out words like “I work better under pressure“. What a load of bull. That is a lie. The same lie I used every time I told myself that I will write more articles, exercise or spend more time outdoors. I always have an excuse and I think it has something to do with fear. Fear of failure. I would rather have others think I lack effort than ability. But not anymore.
Starting today I will launch #Project365. The goal of this project is simple: Do More Every Day. So for 365 days, I will be doing everything I can to improve myself. Be it through physical training, learning new things, joining communities or creating something. As long as I’m moving and enhancing myself it will be a great start. They say that small daily habits can lead to a long-term growth, so I’m starting my success with this.
If you feel the same way as I am and you want to be a part of this project then feel free to drop me a comment below or message me here. And please follow me on my social media accounts to keep posted of my progress. Let’s keep in touch. 🙂
