It is pretty tough to follow a healthy regime. However, when you shrug off the weight of procrastination, the results are awe-inspiring. Despite technical prowess, an ever-increasing desire for largesses and negligence are also some vitriolic takeaways from our evolution. But we surely haven’t inherited these traits. Because our ancestors were not privileged, they had to foray for food risking their lives. Sarcastically, the idea of risk and flimsy-flossy words masquerading our ignorance never existed that time. Every day was a survival mission. In juxtaposition, now its the mission survival for our mother nature and our degrading immune system.
In a book, “A Mind for Numbers” author Barbara Oakley speaks about how procrastination badly affects our daily lives and why it is crucial to get away from this feeling. According to the book, we focus more on the outcome of an activity rather than the process. And, the dread of completing the task drains much of our energy, which is why we usually skip an activity that asks us to unhook from indolence, redirecting our lazy system in vaguely justifying our actions
Our mind is such a powerful machine that it may make you believe something which never exists in reality. It is very sophisticated yet fails to change the status quo and some hardwired facts. If we trick a mind the way it does most of the times will be productive. When you start questioning your thoughts and focus more in a moment, you will find that all it was required is to take the necessary first step. And once the cover is blown, you are set free to achieve something which you always wanted to with least effort.
