Akrasia: How To Stop Procrastinating
It sounds like it should be the title of a new Netflix box set.
But it’s actually a story that involves each one of us, in some area of our lives.
You’ve probably experienced it today.
When you did a less important thing instead of something more important that you didn’t feel like.
Acted against your better judgement, you put something off.
The Greeks called this Akrasia.
Today we call it procrastination.
And procrastination, as we all know, is the killer of progress.
Procrastination robs us of a better life.
Tell-tell signs include:
“I’m not ready”
“I’ll get to it tomorrow.”
Why does it happen?
The simple answer.
We desire pain.
We avoid pleasure.
The more sophisticated answer.
We’ve practiced ourselves into procrastinating.
Created an anchor in ourselves without ever noticing it.
Our brains pursue short term rewards now over better rewards later.
And no one taught you how to change it.
So how do you change it?
