What we can do when we procrastinate?
We have inside of us an inner child (2.5 years) that want playtime and an Superego (6 year old child) that want to fit in the society. If we have to do something, that doesn’t make fun for our inner child, then we running in problems; – when we didn’t had enough playtime for our inner child,… time to relax, play, sex, fun, love…. We put us under pressure, feel guilty, that we can’t do the work, then we procrastinate in having fun and then we in this vicious circuit. The time is wasted and we should be ready with our work…. Under high pressure, we work then continuously very ineffective, without fun to finish the task.
When I was studying Electro technique/ cybernetic, there was a guy, who was super intelligent, enjoyed his life and I was studying like crazy under huge pressure to go through the examinations… And then I asked him, how he can enjoy his life? He asked me, how can I work so hard and understand so less… I said because I am stupid. Yes you are, because you are putting yourself too much under pressure, instead to have a great leisure time…. This never will work… First have fun and then study! When I had my final examination, I had to make my thesis. I was running out of time and then I went for 3 days wind surfing/ beaching/swimming and afterward I could easily work for 18 hours to finish my thesis. Since this time, I know how important it is to have enough fun time! Don’t procrastinate your fun time! Have fun and playtime first, that you feel relaxed and happy and then every work is easy.
If we are working under pressure we are loosing 80% of our creativity, ….
