How Laziness Helped Me Overcome Procrastination
Have you ever really thought about taking action but immediately put it off.
I’m not trying to be a wiseguy with the question. If the old saying,
“tomorrow’s another day” is one of your rules to live by, you just might
belong in the procrastinator’s club.
All of us have a finite number of days on the earth. Perhaps if we knew how
many days we actually had we’d get busy and start realizing some of our goals.
But we don’t know. And “tomorrow’s another day” becomes part of our
ideology because we feel there’s plenty of time. But can we really count on
having tomorrow? I certainly don’t want to turn this into a fear-based piece
but no one knows the future. So why not make something of life while the sun’s
Finding Your Calling
One of the reasons people lack the motivation to take action is they don’t
know what they should be doing. It’s pretty hard to be motivated when you have
no good reason to be. But there’s a secret to becoming motivated. I personally
discovered it when I was in my 20s. The secret is to find your purpose in life,
the thing you were born to do. Once you’ve discovered your true purpose overcoming
procrastination will be simple.
I found that I was supposed to be teaching. I’m not an accredited teacher
but still, I love sharing useful information with others. I love to see the
light go on when they begin to understand something that was once unclear.
I’ve written several books that received some nice reviews. And the opinion
common to many of the reviews was, “he makes hard stuff easy to understand.”
It pleases me to be thought of that way.
And once I figured out what my purpose was it was easy to
procrastination and enjoy increased motivation. In fact, much of the time I
feel that there isn’t enough time in the day to do all that I’d like to do.
Now you might be saying, that’s great for you. You’ve found your purpose
but I have no idea what mine is. I discovered my purpose almost by accident. But
when I did learn what it was I really wasn’t very surprised.
My Purpose Came From My Own Laziness
When I was a kid in the third grade the teacher asked each of us to stand and
tell the class what we wanted to be when we grew up. When my turn came I stood
and told the class I wanted to be a writer. The teacher seemed a bit surprised
and asked why.
With a big smile I told her I wanted to write because writing wasn’t really
work. Real work to me was physical labor and in my eyes sitting down every day
to write was easy compared to what I considered actual work. My teacher just
Later in life when I was struggling, I found out I had some aptitude for
writing and went with it. See, my purpose was sitting there in my subconscious
just waiting for me to release it. And so is yours.
How To Find Your Purpose
Here’s a secret. Your purpose lies in your true desire, the thing that you
most imagine yourself doing. That might be an acting, singing, a professional
athlete, a politician, a doctor, or anything else. The list is almost endless.
Here’s a simple exercise to find that purpose. Think for a moment what you’d
do if money were no object. If all the bills were paid how would you spend the
majority of your time? And be realistic. Watching soaps or sports all day is
probably not your true calling.
When you’re able to answer the question, the first thing that pops into
your head is likely to be accurate. Go with it. Get busy doing something every
day to get closer to it. And once you do, you’re going to discover that
procrastination is no longer an issue. And who knows, you may get to find out
what having all the bills paid feels like. Be well.
