How to Break up with Procrastination in 4 Steps

We often find ourselves procrastinating and try as we may it can be hard to kick it and do the actual work we need to do.

Will I do it now or leave it for later? A "later" which may never come or which you land up fighting with at a rather close deadline and will consequently affect the proficiency of the work you postponed.

 

Why do we procrastinate?

How to Set and Accomplish Your Goals

At the beginning of every year, we hear people talk about their new year resolutions and goals. But as the year progresses, we hardly hear from the very same people about what happened to those resolutions and goals. That's probably because most of us are not able to keep up with our goals past the second week of the year.

We are at the half-year mark, and that means we still have six months left in this year to set and accomplish whatever we choose.

Habits of Effective People

In today’s world, we live on social media. It’s not uncommon to share your work and wins on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and not to mention the self-proclaimed multi-taskers who have about forty tabs open on their laptops and are working on five different projects at the same time. (I was this person a few years back.) Sometimes it feels everyone is busy and we even take pride in being ‘busy’ which means people are getting things done. Right? Not necessarily. We have to stop equating being busy with being effective.

Non-Fiction Books I want to read

We may not always find ourselves in the company of brilliant people. But books have allowed me to surround myself with people who are not just like-minded but way smarter than me. In the past couple of years, I have become more mindful of the people I spend my time with. I cannot always control it, and so there is where books come into play. Intelligent conversations, expertise, experience, whatever I want from the company I can get that from books.

I'm working on myself

One of my goals this year is to take better care of myself, and as a new mom, I am finding it incredibly challenging, but I see immense benefit from it. When setting a goal, I like to hone into the “why” behind it. 
Recently it has been harder. So I went back to my goals journal and started asking why I set this goal, what I wanted out of it and why was it important to me?

TryJournaling

Nowadays there are fancy terms about journaling, but it all allows you do to one thing, free up some space in your mind and help you get what you want. I practice Stream of consciousness journaling which is like Transcribing your thoughts as they come. I let my thoughts flow, organic and authentic without judgment and editing spellings, punctuations, grammar.

My Biggest Life Lessons of 2017

There is a lot spoken about how women should be independent, and my feminist-self have been quite opinionated about it. So, when I needed help while shifting apartments while 9 + months pregnant or when I needed to pee after surgery, asking for help was not easy. I had to sit back and stop pretending that anyone (man or woman) can do it all. It’s not realistic, and it’s not required.
