That Pesky Inner Voice...

You know, the one that's always telling you to do something else instead of what you're supposed to be doing? And then there's that other voice, the super judgy one that makes you feel like a total failure for not getting things done on time.

The inner voice that fuels procrastination can be a pesky and persistent one, often causing us to delay important tasks and responsibilities. While procrastination may seem like a harmless habit, it can have severe consequences for our productivity, work quality, and mental health. Procrastination can lead to stress, anxiety, and feelings of guilt, which can ultimately hinder our ability to perform our best.

Let's focus on that pesky negative voice for a sec, because honestly, it's the worst. Remember when we talked about forgiving yourself for procrastinating? Yeah, that still applies. Don't beat yourself up over it, it happens to the best of us. Just show up and put in some effort, that's all anyone can ask for. No one is perfect, so cut yourself some slack and keep on doing your best.

Instead of letting it bring you down, try to be aware of it and shut it down. You can do this by talking back to it or writing it down in a journal. If that doesn't work, just distract yourself and do something else. The important thing is to not let that voice control you. One way to shut it up is to prove it wrong by doing something productive. Eventually, that voice will become less and less of a nuisance if you stop giving it attention. So let's try not to let it ruin your day!

Alrighty, now it's time to face that nagging voice in your noggin that's always tempting you to do anything but the task at hand. We've all got that little bugger in our heads, which is why we've coined terms like "procrasticleaning" and "procrasticrafting". It's amazing how creative we can get when it comes to avoiding what we really should be doing, right? And that pesky voice is always there to offer suggestions and give us a pat on the back. But it's time to tell it to take a hike and get down to business!

So when that voice in your head starts telling you to ditch work and play video games, try responding with some "yes, and" action. Like, "Yes, video games do sound awesome right now and I'll totally treat myself to an hour after I finish this task." Basically, use the voice's suggestions as a little reward system. But if they don't sound like something worth your time, just brush 'em off and forget about it. No biggie. I trust that these posts are proving to be a valuable resource for you. It is always gratifying to see others excel in their endeavors. Please don't hesitate to contact me at any time should you have any queries, apprehensions, or simply wish to share your thoughts. I am receptive to your thoughts and welcome the opportunity to engage with you.
