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(s) of the week. #Valentines #Fails #ProposalPrank #BadIdea

Happy Valentine’s Day you guys!

For today’s YTCofW I decided to go with something VDay themed. I don’t know if it’s just me but I am way more fascinated by the stories of love gone bad, than by the mushy ones. haha. So, if you are like me… you may enjoy these.

– no1. This one is brutal. A man gets down on one knee… in a busy food court to ask his gf Caroline to Marry him. Just watch… ouch. I feel for him.

– no2. is a prank gone wrong. A new couple go for a lunch on VDay. And the girlfriend has organised to prank her man. The waiter brings a ring to the table as if he had asked for it to be done. He doesn’t know what’s going on. She pretends like she is really shocked and thinks it’s waaaaay too soon. What he says next is priceless.

– no3. a man is looking for his first kiss. The women are all too keen to help the guy out, but when he asks the very large bouncer man for a kiss… he gets more than he bargained for.

– no4. if you haven’t had enough of the awkwardness. Here is a compilation of 5 proposal fails. ouch! PS: Caroline and the abomination that is the food court proposal features here too. Ouch AGAIN.

My #YouTubeClipOfTheWeek #EvolutionOfHipHopDancing featuring @JimmyFallon and WILL SMITH!!!

Every Sat I share a video with you that I think is… flipping kiff. There really is very little to explain here. If you aren’t familiar with Jimmy Fallon and his show… do yourself a favour and check out the rest of his stuff. But this is a great start. You may be familiar with a video that went viral called the “Evolution of Dance” which has had over 289 MILLION views. My video is a different take on it… it’s the Evolution of Hip Hop dancing… done by Jimmy Fallon and the one and only… WILL SMITH. It’s had over 23 million views and from the cabbage patch, and the ‘wop’… to running man and every other imaginable hip hop dance… this is a lot of fun to watch 🙂 And the soundtrack is KILLER.

Mom tells her son she’s pregnant… his reaction is PRICELESS. hahaha

 

I am FINISHED. This morning I’m standing in on the Heart Breakfast show and Aden Thomas (show host) showed me this video. This little boy is told that his mom is pregnant and he is BESIDE HIMSELF…. why on EARTH would mom want another child? SHE HAS TWO ALREADY… “what were you thinking”… “this is exasperating” he says hahahaha. Enjoy watching it over and over…. ♥

My Clip of the week… is Justin Timberlake doing Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’ dance. #snl

Every Saturday I put up a video that has amused me in some way. August, being women’s month, I have stuck to ‘lady’ related videos. And today is no different… kind of.
If you have never heard of SNL (Saturday Night Live), it is a comedy skit show based in the states and comes up with some real gems, like this one.
This is a parody of Beyonce’s Single Ladies dance, featuring B herself, alongside Andy Samberg (Brooklyn nine-nine, and The Lonely Island) as well as Justin Timberlake… dressed in tights, leotards and black heels! It is great. hahaha. Enjoy

If you have come across some excellent videos online, and would like to share them with us, please email the link to keri@1049.fm

 

My YouTube Clip of the week: Female Fails #newsbloopers #falling

HELLO AGAIN!
It is Saturday, which means… my YouTube clip of the week goes live.

As it is Women’s Month I have been focusing purely on the ladies of YouTube. Today is no different… There are two videos today. Both I really enjoyed but probably because I, like many people, get some weird pleasure from watching people fall. NOTE: no one was very seriously injured in these videos. (except hopefull for the 2 clips with bulls where I hope the people WERE. *I am not a fan of rodeo or the running of the bulls at all*)
aaaanyway….

The first video is one of female news anchors ‘failing’ live. I love news blooper videos, and I have MANY funnier ones but because I’m sharing this with my work profile I need to ‘keep it clean’ 😉 My favourite part is where the news anchor pronounces ‘Phuket’ as … well… you can only imagine.

the second video, with over 142 million views, proves to me, that it’s not only me and my sister Ceejae who LOVE watching people fall. This is a 10 minute home video compilation of ladies coming very short. hahahaha. IF this is your cup of tea… I’m sure you will also enjoy it.

If you have any great YouTube clips that you would like to share on my show please email keri@1049.fm

and remember… you can listen to Heart 104.9FM live on streaming here.

 

My YouTube clip of the week. FEMALE DRIVING FAILS haha.

It’s the first Saturday of Women’s Month and consider I do the traffic on #Drive326, I couldn’t resist this one.
I don’t think ALL women are bad drivers, but I have seen women do some stupid ‘ish’ on the roads, these are just priceless. It’s 10 female driving fails… hahahaa. enjoy xxx

(for those of you who don’t know, every Saturday I’m on air from 12-3pm on Heart 104.9fm and every Saturday I share a great YouTube clip. If you have a YouTube clip you would like to share please send it to me on email: keri@1049.fm)

 

 

The World’s BIGGEST fart… by an animal!

I was on twitter and stumbled upon this on an old colleague, Ryan O’Conner’s  timeline.

Firstly, I must say, I do NOT condone any animal being in a zoo.
No ‘butts’ about it.
This though, is ‘hot air’ I cannot not share.

My Youtube Clip of the Week : GREAT footie clip. #TheLastGame #Brilliant #worldcup2014

Hello everyone. Saturday is here again. So it’s time for my youtube clip of the week. If you have a great video that you think I should share with out Heart listeners, please send the link to me on keri@1049.fm. If I play your clip I will let you know so you can listen out for your shout out on air. 🙂

Today’s one is football themed, and I need to thank my man Richard-Dean Sumares for sharing THIS one with me. Even I, who really does not understand the game, really loved this. Enjoy 🙂

The last game is a story about risky football vs safe football. The scientist and the clones want to prove that riskless football is more effective. Ronaldo, Fenomeno and the original players disagree, and they are willing to risk everything to prove the scientist wrong. There is only one way to know who is right; THE LAST GAME. ft (animated) Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Neymar Jr, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Andres Iniesta, David Luiz, Franck Ribery, Tim Howard and Ronaldo Fenomeno.
