What inspires one man to create a multi-billion dollar company, while another man sits on his couch, drinking beer and shitting in his pants?
What makes one man make wake up and lift weight with the fury of Thor, while another man eats Mcdonalds for breakfast while watching TV re-runs before work.
Procrastination is cancer that eats away your soul.
Winners learn how to dominate procrastination, while losers submit to it.
Can you over come procrastination? Yes you can.
Understand why you procrastination by seeing the long term consequences of inaction. Finally, replace your bad habits with good ones. So simple, yet so hard to do.
Most people aren’t lazy. They’re exhausted from working 9 to 5 or attending school with a part-time job.
Beating procrastination is hard. But it’s possible to over come, with the right understanding and a bit of patience.
Let’s see why people procrastinate …
Procrastination is part of human nature
Your brain comes in 3 parts: reptilian (brain stem), mammal (limbic), human brain (neocortex)
Your reptilian and mammal part of your brain tells you to relax. Stop pushing yourself so hard! The status quo is okay.
Procrastination is biological programming, it’s need to conserve energy.
90 percent of people who join the gym, quit within 2 weeks (well, at least they tried)
It’s easier to eat pizza than a bowl of salad. People rather watch TV than jog.
Procrastination is a human condition that we must fight. Think of procrastination as a big guy that we must punch a hole through.
How do you overcome procrastination? By taking the right action every day.
Habit is a powerful thing. Fat people dying from diabetes continue to eat more unhealthy food, people with throat cancer continue to smoke. If only we can from good habits …
I smoked casually for a year, about 1-6 cigarettes a day. I decided to quit cold turkey, simply because smoking made my clothes smell like shit and my lungs were hurting. I have been smoke free for 7 months now without relapsing.
What’s the secret? Go slowly.
Achieve your goals by seeing EVERYTHING long term
If you see the long term consequences of your actions – you naturally stop procrastinating. Like how I stopped having sex with herpes infected women.
If you want to write a 365 page novel, simply write 1 page a day. If you want to lose 12 pounds, eat less and exercise more. Simple advice, yet hard to follow.
People are governed by emotions. If people simply eat less and exercise more, the multi-billion dollar diet industry would collapse on it’s knees. Yet … 68 percent of Americans are fat.
I met a friend at the poker table. He’s middle aged, fat and has high blood pressure. I gave him advice on exercise.
“Just walk 10 minutes a day. It’s a good start.” I cheered him on.
“I know but I just want to watch TV after work …” he said. Understandable.
He’s a nice guy. The type of guy who would jump start a stranger’s car battery. He’s a smart programmer who makes 6 figures. A family man with kids. It saddens me that he will die 10-15 years sooner, simply because he refuse to exercise and eat right. A heart attack would make him exercise. Sadly, it’s too late then.
People like over eat or watch TV as a knee jerk habit – so why eat healthy and exercise as a habit?
It’s time for change.

Top 5 shit tier habits to remove today (ranking from most destructive to least)
2. eating junk food
3. social media / mindless internet wasting
4. watching TV
5. playing video games
The majority of people fall into pleb tier habits by default. It’s understandable – their day job is exhausting, they’re living pay check to pay check, battling with mental disorders etc. It’s a desperate climb up, like a crippled man climbing a mountain on his hands and knees.
Your death clock is ticking. Vow to yourself – I will never engage in shit tier activities, ever again. Make it an oath. God gives you the strength to stay strong.
The uber human has no time to waste on trivials.
The secret to making your new habit stick
Most people fail to stick to a habit because they go too hard, too fast. It’s like an untrained person trying to bench press 350 lbs.
The “not so secret” is to go slowly.
Where to start? Pick 1 habit and do it every day for 10 minutes. Starting a habit for 10 minutes may seem pointless – but it will snowball into something big.
For the first month, do your ten minutes habit every day. The second month, bump it up to 20 minutes. How many habits should you take? Pick 1 good habit, and remove 1 bad habit.
This blog is 5 weeks old and has 5 articles. My goal for this blog is 1 new blog post every Thursday. I accomplished this by writing 25 minutes a day – whether I “feel like it or not”. Prior to starting this blog, I haven’t blogged for years.
I started lifting weights when I was 22. I have been lifting weights consistently for 7 years now. I also write in my journal every day – for the past 5 years.
The most challenging habit for me was meditation. I know the benefits of meditation – more present moment awareness, reduced stress level, silence the mind etc – yet it seemed so pointless. Oh well – do it anyways. I started meditating 10 minutes a day. So far, I logged 26 hours.
Start your new 10 minutes habit today. This is the start of your uber human journey.
Live a minimalist life to boost productivity
I recommend the minimalist lifestyle.
Here’s why …
The #1 worry people have is MONEY.
Minimalism isn’t about being poor or anti-consumerism. It’s about being smart – buying few high quality things that enhance your life, and let the bullshit slide. With less stupid shit cluttering your home and life, you have breathing room to do what really matters.
Fun fact: Americans spend 6 billion dollars a year on storage rental.
Man is naturally a minimalist.
Being a minimalist is the right thing to do. You give a big middle finger to the advertisement industry, with it’s planned obsolescence, subliminal advertisement and selling diabete inducing drinks to kids.
You’re meant to create something great in this world. Let the sheeples consume themselves to debt.
“Wolf of Wall Street” by Jordan Belfort once said [I paraphrase]: “These people are making a million a year and they’re broke because of their lifestyle. They’re loyal to me because they’re broke!”
Think of minimalism as a necessary step to become a free man.
Are you ready to start your procrastination free life?
When you have develop good habits, procrastination eventually ease to exist. You embody the “go getter” attitude. Everything gets done quickly, even the hard stuff, because you see the long term implications of your actions.
Like a smoker who habitually smoke after dinner, you’ll habitually get things done effortlessly, like a smooth play boy.
Over coming procrastination is a gradual journey. It can be frustrating at times.
BUT. Never give up.
Have faith in yourself because God has faith in you. You only fail if you give up – everything else is a learning experience.
Eventually you’ll develop rock solid habits. Along with good habits, you’ll have iron will power – strong enough to move mountains.
The difference between a man living beyond his wildest dream and a mediocre, “I hate my life” fat guy is the quality of his habits. Stick to good habits and constantly push yourself to become better. A year from now, you’ll be glad you started today.
Leonardo Da Vinci was utterly productively because he switched from one habit to another. He drew pictures of naked women and dreamed up of inventions – boredom does not have shit on him.
Developing strong habits will change your life. Your grit and patience will guide you towards the top. A year from now, you’ll be glad you started today.
Now that you know what to do, there is nothing stopping you.
I’ll see you at the top, comrade.
