Today’s topic is procrastination busting strategies that you can use when you’ve lost your desire to get stuff done. I’ve mentioned before that motivation is a cyclical thing, with natural highs and lows; sometimes we feel energized and inspired to get as many things done as we possibly can, and other times, our energy is lower and we temporarily lose that drive to take action towards our dreams and goals. Usually, when the low points hit, it’s best to just go with that natural flow and take the “downtime” to recharge ourselves by resting and doing some of those things that we enjoy doing but put aside during the high energy/high action times (like reading fiction books or watching movies or whatever).
The problem that we can sometimes run into during these low energy/low action points is that if we let them continue for too long, we get ourselves stuck in a non-action slump that can be very difficult to get out of. Isaac Newton’s First Law of Motion is the Law of Inertia, which is the one that tells us that unless it is acted upon by an outside force, an object in motion tends to stay in motion while an object at rest tends to stay at rest. This principle of inertia is just as applicable to your dreams and goals as it is to the physical objects that surround you.
If you’re in a situation where you’ve been in low energy mode for a while, and you find yourself consistently putting off taking any action towards your goals, then you need to ask yourself if you’ve gone beyond the point of a natural dip in your energy and into the realm of procrastination. If you realize that you are, in fact, in the clutches of the Evil Procrastination Monster, then it’s time to take the bull by the horns, and do something to break that inertial slump by creating that “outside force” that will kick-start you back into high energy/ high action mode!
