How to Use Procrastination to Your Advantage (2 min read)

Procrastination is a major dream killer. It as done so many evils to the dreams and aspirations of many. We have all in one way or the other fallen to the dictate of procrastination.

In as much as we can go all draw out a long list of uncountable amounts of negativities that can be linked to procrastination, there are still some underlining benefits that we can get from procrastination.

One question we should ask ourselves is this: Why do we procrastinate?  According to Anthony Robbins, in his book AWAKEN THE GIANT WITHIN. He points to the fact that we can change a particular behavior if we can link so much pain to such behavior and pleasure to the new behavior we intend to develop.

Taking this into account shows the fact that procrastination is mainly caused by fear of pain and failure.

The pain approach

So, for you to use procrastination to your advantage, you need to first, link so much pain to your present activities, that the urge for change becomes so strong that you can’t take it for a second.

For instance, you want to quit smoking, you should start linking all the negative consequences of smoking that you can think about.

This will make you develop a strong hatred for smoking and make you stay clear of every environment where smoking occurs. Also, it, in turn, makes you look for a more desired replacement.

The flip side approach

Another method is that you need to ask yourself these questions: What do I procrastinate? The things I procrastinate are they of value to me? What are those things of lesser values that are taking my time?

Read: Why You Should Spend Time Alone

After you are able to answer these, you decide to take actions on things of greater values, while you procrastinate those activities of lesser values.

The pleasure approach

Finally, we can get things done quickly and better if we can link so much pleasure to such behaviors or activities. We are doing what we do at present because we have this subconscious linkage of pleasure to such. So if you are able to link pleasure to things of value in your life, you will see yourself using procrastination to your advantage.

We would love to hear from you on what you think about procrastination and how we can overcome it.

6 Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Accepting a Job Offer (2 min read)

Whether you are an active job seeker or not, the idea of committing to a future working in the unchartered territory is stressful! Saying yes to a job that doesn’t support your career goals may reduce your motivation and add unnecessary stress to your life. But saying no may mean missed opportunities for personal and professional growth!

Here are a few questions to ask yourself before saying “YES!” to a new job.

1. What is your motivation for accepting a new job?

Hate the job you’re in? Jumping at the first job offer you get may lead you to hate that job too.  Looking to expand your experience? Make sure that you’ll be getting the experience you want before saying yes! Time for a change? Change is good, go for it!

2. What are your short-term goals in a job?

Do you want to improve your client service skills? Learn more about human resources? Short term goals are just as important as long-term goals. Identify some short term goals to help steer you toward your end goal.

3. What is your career end goal?

It’s okay if you don’t know. Pick a ‘ballpark’ end goal. Do you want to manage people? Be a successful writer? Teach? Be an expert in accounting? Identify what you are working towards and start building the path thereby accepting jobs that will help with your personal and professional development.

4. Will this job add valuable skills and experience to your resume?

Any experience is a good experience. But don’t settle for just any experiences. What skills and experiences can this job offer you that will help you reach your short-term and long-term career goals?

5. What do you value most in a job?

Do you value autonomy? Challenges? Opportunities to work in a team environment? Do some research. Interview your interviewer and find out if your values are the right fit for the job they are offering you.

6. What work-related activities keep you from staring at the clock?

Do project base activities keep you engaged all day? Maybe math related work makes time fly by. Identify what you love to do at work, and identify the things you hate while you’re at it. If you’ve been offered an administrative opportunity, and you hate administrative tasks, pass on the job and find another, more enjoyable way to add those skills to your resume.

Choose wisely and aim for the stars!
