I Just Don't Care

I just don’t care. Why do we procrastinate? What it is about that to do list that makes us wait to the very last minute? Why do the majority of people procrastinate? The number one reason is simply because we don’t care. We’re not excited about the task or goal at hand. We’re not excited enough about it to lose sleep over or jump out of our bed. Life is happening to us and we’re just reluctantly going along. Now don’t get me wrong, there are everyday mundane things we must do that won’t excite us like ironing clothes or studying for an upcoming exam. However, if we simply change the meaning we attach to the goal (ie, give your goals a meaning you care about) you will do it more excitingly and live life with more juice. Reasons For Procrastinating: Ironing clothes is boring but if you’re launching a major project that you’ve worked so hard on, or you’re about to catch a flight to a Hawaiian vacation you’ve been looking forward to all year, ironing clothes will be a total different experience. Studying for an exam on a subject that intrigues you so much you won’t want to put the textbook down will deliver a different experience than studying some boring required subject you’ll probably never use again. It’s the experiences we live and work for. The bottom line is most of us are not living a life with juice. We stagnate, drag, and barely make it through the day because we just don’t care about what we’re doing. We find that we must do what needs to get done, reluctantly and our experiences are joyless and for some, full of regret. Two more common reasons we procrastinate are fear and a lack of knowledge of how to get “there.” As for fear, everyone at some point in their lives face fear. Whether it's fear of success or failure the secret is the top successful people has figured out a way, or paid someone, to show them how to move in spite of fear. That’s it. That’s the big mystery solved. The fear you have of failure, success, or the unknown never truly dissipates. You just need to learn how to manage it well enough so that it does not stop you or your visions, and certainly not your mission. As for not knowing how to get “there”, I’d like to propose a question. If I asked you the quickest way to get to Egypt and you’ve never been there could you give me an accurate answer? Of course not. Guessing would be a waste of time so the best thing to do is to equip yourself with a map or compass ie, people with experience such as mentors, life coaches, or guidance counselors, parents, or friends that will hold you accountable for your actions and encourage you to propel forward regardless of what your circumstances look like today. The bottom line is you have to live for yourself. You must decide to walk down your path. Find true meaning and purpose for your life and goals, purify your intentions, equip yourself with a good map and proper guidance, take action today even if it's just a step, and surround yourself with people who will hold you accountable when you need it the most and cheer you on until the end! Life will begin to look different for you as it has for so many people before you struggling through the same test and you will find that you will begin accomplishing goals way before they are almost due!
