How to Efficiently Overcome Procrastination with New Science-Backed Hacks

How do you overcome procrastination? We all have it. We all want to fix it. We all hate it. Yet we still find ourselves putting off what we know we should be doing to do something more fun (but less productive).

I’ve poured over advice from the world’s most successful people on this topic, like Brian Tracy. And want to provide you with some tips.

We all procrastinate, even multi-millionaires and billionaires have admitted to procrastinating. Matt Lloyd of MOBE, a mult-millionaire, admitted he still catches himself on Facebook from time to time. Warren Buffett admitted in the 2016 Annual Shareholders Meeting that he put off firing someone with Alzheimers for too long because he liked him.

But what they do differently is they set up systems so it happens less, especially for important things. Working smarter often beats working harder.

While we all know the importance of working hard by now, working yourself to death alone isn’t the most efficient or effective process.

How do I continue to do something that I started and loved?

How to Deal With Multiple Passions and Leverage the Power of The Dip Without Burning Out

Does this sound like you?

Whenever you start to do something in a field (that you love), you feel interested initially and you put in all your effort. But after some time, you lose interest and stop doing it although you still love it. 

How do I continue to do something that I started and loved?

Today, I want to share with you:

  • how to solve the dilemma of “multiple passions” and find your calling.
  • why there’s massive, disproportionate reward with being the best in the world.
  • how to get there without burning out because you can even if you’re passionate about it.

The Dilemma of Multiple Interests and How To Tackle It

Ever since I found about the “Follow Your Passion” movement a few years ago, I struggled because I thought I had multiple interests and believed it was a bad thing. It seemed like successful people only had one interest and focused on that interest for decades until they got rich. I was told that you have to focus on one interest because no one has ever become successful at multiple skills except for once-in-a-millenium freaks like Leonardo DaVinci, Ben Franklin, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

But it was so hard to restrain myself. I had dozens of interests, like video games, YouTube, manga, anime, personal development, business economics, music, and so on.

Now, there are a couple of TED Talks that argue that people like us have their own label. We are called “multipotentialites” or “polymaths.” They argue we should be proud of who we are and the world needs us.

I respectfully disagree.

Ramits Dream Job Course Review

A Brutally Honest Review of Ramit Sethi’s Find Your Dream Job Course

If you haven’t heard of Ramit Sethi, he runs a blog and company at Iwillteachyoutoberich.com. He teaches Millenials in their twenties and thirties how to earn money on the side as a freelancer, get their dream job, and/or start an online business.

This is the story of how I spent over $2,000 on his online course, Dream Job. It’s also my brutally honest review on if it was worth it. Maybe Ramit would kill me if he saw this, but I thought it’s best to be honest as a consumer; I have my right to be.

Perhaps, it’s best to start my story at the point where my emotions were highest…

Before I Bought the Dream Job Course: Desperate, Frustrated, & DisIllusioned

Before I bought Ramit’s Dream Job course, I was at one of the toughest times in my life. I was frustrated and confused with getting any job and I was getting desperate, which wouldn’t make sense if you knew how academically-focused I was in school right before. 

I was taking some of the hardest classes out there. I was used to a rigorous workload and schedule. In high school, I spent hours a day preparing for SAT, practicing piano, running track, and doing homework for advanced placement classes. In college, it was a similar story. Yet the job market wasn’t rewarding me for it. 

Two years after college, I was working as a waiter and still looking for work. How is this possible?

Is it too late to be successful after a certain age

Is It Too Late To Be Successful After (Insert Age Here)?

For the longest time, I felt like it was way too late to make an impact on the world and become successful.

I am ambitious and I wanted to be really successful. But the news made it seem like if you did not become a singer, actress, or tech entrepreneur by the time you were 21, it was over. It turns out I’m not the only one. A lot of other people (some into their 40’s) think it’s too late.

But then I got into personal development and did some research. I studied hundreds of the world’s most successful people and I was startled at what I found.

It’s not true at all. When you think it is all over, it’s really just the beginning of an incredible journey.

Get Excited. The Best Years of Your Life Are Ahead.

How To Get Someone To Like You in 5 Minutes or Less Without Lying

Have you ever been in a social gathering with strangers around you?

I bet you wanted someone to like you so you didn’t seem so strange standing alone.

Perhaps, it was a networking event. Maybe a barbeque. Or a party. I have found myself in plenty of these situations.

Not long ago, I was a lost boy who went to these gatherings to make some of my first friends. The problem was that I thought that your ability to make people like you was limited from birth. I thought you couldn’t change it and you were just as good as you are (psychologists call this a “fixed mindset.”).

But then, I discovered personal development (specifically social skills advice) online. It was a new opportunity that changed my life because it gave me hope that I could be better.

I learned that there are changes you can easily make to your body language, ton, expression, and language that could dramatically affect how others respond to you.

Take a look at this new video, which will explain the good and bad about the advice online. Unfortunately, there is also a lot of bad advice online that didn’t work out when I experimented in real life:

I want to conclude with a few bonus tips that weren’t mentioned thoroughly in the video:

I Spend $145 a Month on Crossfit

I Spend $145 a Month on Crossfit. Here’s 3 Surprising Reasons Why Spending More Intelligently Gets You More Results.

I spend a $145 on fitness every month.

I know. ABSURD!

But here’s why:

A GREAT way for anyone to achieve their goals faster is to force accountability in a way that hurts.

But people don’t want to…

They say:

“Why would I pay more money unnecessarily when I can just save money and use my willpower?”

“You should do work you’re passionate about to succeed. You don’t need to pay for suffering.”

Money only gets you so far.” 

But a Harvard behavioral scientist and professor found that people psychologically trust and follow through with the same quality of information when they pay for it versus when they it’s free. In fact, the more we pay, the more we listen to it.

But there’s more to why I do it. I reveal it all in this new video. You will learn:

  • why the cheapskate pays the most.
  • why this explodes your mental resiliency and happiness.
  • why this improves your ability to work at a high performer level.

When you’re done watching the video, tell me in the comments about the last time when you spent a lot of money. What did you learn from the experience?
