The “Ready-Steady-Go” Habit: Avoid Procrastination and Make Things Done

Start Practice your Habits Everyday.

Everyday our Lives are Governed by Habit. These Habits are the little Routines and Modalities of doing Things. Most People are Unaware or are only Slightly Aware that they are Doing them.

Some  bad Habits, like Procastinating, Eating Junk Food, Smoking, can have Harmful Effects on the Health and others like Procrastination can Affect our Work, Career and Outcomes.

Whenever we find Ourselves wanting to Do something else while in the Middle of Something Scheduled we should be Doing, simply Stop and Breath as Deeply as you Can for Five Minutes and ReFocus your Attention on the Task you are Practicing or you Should Start to Practice Here and Now.

Therefore it is Important to Take Back Control on Our Effectiveness.

This can Be Extremely Hard for some People or in Determined Situations, because some Habits to Change after all are so Ingrained that we do them Without Thinking.

Procrastination is one of the most Common Human Behaviors, but if we can gain Control over Procrastination by Developing more Awareness as soon as Possible and Stopping it in its Tracks. 

On the contrary, you Know you Have a Bad Habit when you are Aware that you are Putting Something Off, and you Continue Avoiding it Anyway.

In Average, It Takes 21 Days to form a Habit and According to a Study from the University of London is Reveled that it will take between 18 to 264 Days for a Person to form a Behavior, depending on the Original Behavior of the Person and the Circumstances that Surround Him. 

These are just Theories and Statistics, so don’t Worry about how much Time you Will Need to Handle your Habits and Create Desired Behaviors for Yourself: Just Start Today and Do your Best for Staying on Track Enjoying the Process.

1% Better Everyday can Do all the Difference of the World.
