Best Procrastination Tip Ever – Leo Babuata.

Best Procrastination Tip Ever

procrast

Post written by Leo Babauta.

Your first thought as you look at this article will be, “I’ll read this later.”

But don’t. Let the urge to switch to a new task pass. Read this now.

It’ll take you two minutes. It’ll save you countless hours.

I’ve written the book on ending procrastination, but I’ve since come up with a very simple technique for beating everyone’s favorite nemesis. It is incredibly easy, but as with anything, it takes a little practice.

Try it now:

Identify the most important thing you have to do today.

Decide to do just the first little part of it — just the first minute, or even 30 seconds of it. Getting started is the only thing in the world that matters.

Clear away distractions. Turn everything off. Close all programs. There should just be you, and your task.

Sit there, and focus on getting started. Not doing the whole task, just starting.

Pay attention to your mind, as it starts to have urges to switch to another task. You will have urges to check email or Facebook or Twitter or your favorite website. You will want to play a game or make a call or do another task. Notice these urges.

But don’t move. Notice the urges, but sit still, and let them pass. Urges build up in intensity, then pass, like a wave. Let each one pass.

Notice also your mind trying to justify not doing the task. Also let these self-rationalizing thoughts pass.

Now just take one small action to get started. As tiny a step as possible.

Get started, and the rest will flow.

My YouTube clip of the week. WOW. This illusionist is beyond great.

I just stumbled across this… this man is incredible.

His name is Darcy Oake and he entered Britain’s Got Talent in 2014. His ‘slight of hand’ is unbelievable. I’m not usually a ‘magic trick’ lover… but this…is… amazing. This video, published in April 2014 has had 46,378,908 views (as of 13/3/2015).

I hope you were as amazed as me. ♥

“Not only can illusionist Darcy make doves appear out of nowhere, he also has an even bigger trick up his sleeve.
Simon thinks the Judges have uncovered a star — see if you agree.”

  1. Born: September 27, 1987 (age 27), Linden Woods, Winnipeg
  2. Nationality: Canadian

Only watch this if you WANT TO DANCE!! My #YouTubeClipofTheWeek. It’s @C2Cdjs #Happy. #GospelFunk #wow

Every week I choose a ‘sick’ video and share it with you, my readers and on air with my Heart 104.9FM listeners. Today is an absolute favourite of mine.
This song is called HAPPY… and oh my oh my…. I get SO STOKED when I listen to it. And I think that this music video is off the chaaaaaaain. Hence the reason THIS is my choice for my #YoutubeClipOfTheWeek. At the time of me putting up this post, this video (put up in Dec 2012) had had just over 11,803,000 views

C2C (also known as Coups2Cross) was formed in 1998 in the city of Nantes. The collaboration group consists of 4 French DJ’s: Atom and pFeL from Beat Torrent and 20Syl and Greem from Hocus Pocus. Members of an emerging movement called scratch music, each member of the group uses his turntable as an instrument, recreating in turn drums, bass guitars, scratching a riff of guitar or shearing the brass.

They met during their high school years and as teens they were fascinated by the work of DJ Qbert and DJ Shadow, the founding fathers of turntablism. They set off to make a name for themselves at the turn of the millennium and soon started developing their own unique performing style. Follow them on twitter HERE

Want to sing along? No problem… Here are the lyrics. *have a favourite #YoutubeClip? Send them to me now: keri@1049.fm*

 

“Happy”
(feat. Derek Martin)

You’ll never feel happy
You’ll never feel happy, no you won’t, until you try!
You’ll never feel happy
You’ll never feel happy, until you even try [x7]
You’ll never feel happy, until you try

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try [x3]
You’ll never feel happy, until you try

Everybody needs this
Everybody needs this, happy thing
Everybody needs this, everybody needs this, happy thing

This song is not a gospel song
This song is not a funk song
This song is not a wrong song
This song is a real song aaaah!

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try! [x4]
I need to be happy! Every, everyday!
And every night!
Everybody!
Again and again!
You know what? you’ll never never never never never never never never feel..

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try …

Never never never,
Never never never,
Never never never,
Never never never woooou!

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try! [x4]
Haheheuhoho…

 

My Youtube Clip of the Week: Alex and Sierra cover Britney Spears TOXIC! #sultry

I am loving these audition videos and this one is one of my favourites. Now I’m not trying to love my deeply rooted love for Britney… but I really think this version of her song TOXIC by this couple is just too good. Take a listen, have a watch…. and tell me what you think? It’s really great seeing a performer not trying to be all sexual… and it comes across so beautifully sultry. With just under 22 million views it seems this couple has us all ‘in love with their love’.

got a great YouTube vid you’d like to share? email them to me on keri@1049.fm

#AdviceFromSomewhere. We could all take a little something from these.

Advice from Somewhere

goodforthesoul

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

When you say, “I’m sorry,” look the person in the eye.
SIX.
Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
SEVEN.
Believe in love at first sight.

Never laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

In disagreements, fight fairly. Please No name calling.
ELEVEN.
Don’t judge people by their relatives.

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
TWENTY-ONE.
Spend some time alone.

This came around anonamously, identified as from a “Chinese Tantra Totem” – One definition of a tantra being a statement of principle or religious practice and collections of such principles and practices. It’s origins are probably from south Asia such as India and may have followed Hinduism and Buddhism and other related belief and practice systems into East Asia including China. One person who viewed this page responded that they are from the Dalai Lama, but didn’t not say which one – which generation.

May be. I haven’t verified any origins for these sayings. I don’t think most of them are unique to China or Asia. Certainly some have existed in western culture for a long time as well. (They are even older than me) Some are probably ancient. Some, such as the ‘smile when answering the phone’ are at least modern variations if not actually recent. But they sound good. If you live this way life will seem happy. – from the web author. – http://www.msu.edu/~jerrymc/humor/advice.html

My YouTube Clip of the week: GREAT flashmob choreography! ♥

Every Saturday, I put up a video that I really love. And this week is a video I must have watched a hundred times, but that’s nothing when you see that this video has had over 6.6 million views. I have a background in dance and choreography so maybe this is why I just love this so much, but I also really enjoy their choice of music (Macklemore – Can’t Hold Us). This dance troupe, named ‘hey crew’ are really amazing. And I definitely have a crush on their lead choreographer Guillaume Lorentz.
I’m also a huge fan of flashmobs, I wish we did them more 🙂

Enjoy this awesome piece of choreography. And if you have any great youtube videos please send them to me via email to keri@1049.fm ☻

What is a ‘flashmob’?

A flash mob (or flashmob)[1] is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression.[2][3][4] Flash mobs are organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails.[5][6][7][8][9]

There is some question as to whether the term, coined in 2003, is applied to events and performances organized for the purposes of politics (such as protests), commercial advertisement, publicity stunts that involve public relation firms, or paid professionals.[7][10][11] In these cases of a planned purpose for the social activity in question, the term smart mobs is often applied instead.

The term “flash rob” or “flash mob robberies”, a reference to the way flash mobs assemble, has been used to describe a number of robberies and assaults perpetrated suddenly by groups of teenage youth.[12][13][14] Bill Wasik, originator of the first flash mobs, and a number of other commentators have questioned or objected to the usage of “flash mob” to describe criminal acts,[14][15] however, in a number of reported cases, flash mobs have turned violent or led to criminal activity.[16][17]
