Day 50 & 51 – ProcrastinationAugust 14th, 2013 by David
I am the world’s biggest procrastinator, even whilst trying to write this blog post I have checked my email, Facebook, the BBC and a number of sports websites multiple times when really I should be finishing as quick as possible and trying to get an early night! For years and years I have known that I needed to lose weight and change my lifestyle but I was procrastinating because I knew that it was going to take a lot of hard work and time. Additional hard work and time outside of office hours is extremely difficult to execute however after working on my MBA for the last 2 years I have had to go that extra mile to achieve the feeling of success. Realistically trying to work full time, study for a MBA, change my lifestyle, lose weight and train would have resulted in burn out, I reached that point with just working and doing my MBA! If you want to be successful you cannot procrastinate there is not enough hours in the day. There is a reason why most people fail in their lifestyle change and weight loss goal, they are either unprepared or not willing to put the hard work in to be successful. If you want to succeed you have to change your mindset, the article here provides five ways in which to stop procrastinating, I think they are valid and it would be beneficial to take a look. Another good resource is this interview with Harvard Professor David Laibson http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/01/david-laibson-aspen-ideas_n_3678522.html, if you have some spare time or you are procrastinating then it is worth a watch The main point I am trying to make is that without action you won’t succeed. Stop procrastinating, take action and the steps required to change your lifestyle, lose weight and achieve the feeling of success.
