Procrastination, according to Google Translate, is the action of delaying or postponing something.
And most people, like myself, has the tendency to wait, postponing and delaying things. Be it going to gym, finishing the work tasks, cleaning up the house, washing the dishes, getting into relationship, signing up for health insurance, starting to invest, submitting paper and many other things <you fill up here yourself>, there’s always this statement on our brain: let’s do it later or tomorrow or next time as there’s still time for it.
At the end of the day (or week, or even month) whenever you are fully conscious of the situation (deadline is just around the corner) and where you are now in your life, only then you realize you didn’t do so much except keep delaying and postponing things. Procrastinating!
Lucky for me, I do have these things which I have been gathering my whole life and still tuning them – some of which I discovered myself during my down time and trying to get up and quit from drowning – tested, executed and experienced them myself to overcome the procrastination. Meet G-STRING.
Well, it’s not really this G-STRING you see on the image above. It’s a different kind of G-STRING.
And lucky for you, I summarize them here in one article which hopefully these G-STRING can help you to keep you on track.
Guaranteed working unless you are so dumb and ignorant to your own life!
