“The Now Habit Summary”

Procrastination is a highly unfamiliar term that actually represents the difference between progress and stagnation. In general, Neil Fiore explains it through several examples. For instance, surfing all day long, or spending time on Facebook, instead of doing something that can ultimately produce value is procrastination.

Some people reckon that lacking productiveness indicates the same point, but as we move slowly you’ll grasp the contrast. Doing your chores, going shopping, or painting; only make sure that you are not laying around and doing absolutely nothing.

Believe us, when we say, there is never nothing to be done. A simple phone call just to say hello is sufficient to start the day in high spirits.

By now you surely have a clue of what we are trying to convey and why are we dispatching this message to the world! The bottom line is, there is not a single person in this world, who was born lazy, absent skills, talent, and will.

It’s evident that we procrastinate most often while we are at work, or something similar to it. As we mentioned, instead of going for the “Golden Globe,” – you are making excuses to avoid fulfilling the assignments for today.

Let’s reveal three characteristics of the highly avoided types of tasks that make people sick:

  • The most common aspect, when a job has been assigned to you but comes with a heavy load like fulfilling someone else’s expectations and neglect yours.
  • Second, when the task you are about to do is incredibly dull. From the beginning, you don’t feel the pull from it, and you are not motivated to go all the way through.
  • And the worst of all, you have no idea why are you being selected for the job.

You mustn’t sidestep any phase if you wish to understand why are we inclined to believe that some people are destined to be less productive. Returning to the roots is job number one.

How many times did your parents punished you as a kid for not fulfilling your duties or vice versa (you’ve been given a reward)? From the other perspective, if your child doesn’t obey your rules, and continues to be stubborn, you should teach him/her a lesson or not?
