Video Summary:
Procrastination is the human tendency to resist doing something, and is an insidious robber of time, dreams, and energy. Simplistically, the cure for procrastination is action.

Several techniques can be helpful to overcome the mind's resistance to doing anything that we have told it we "should," "must," or "need" to do. As soon as we make it an imperative, our childish brain starts to resist. So the first technique is to make the imperative a choice. By removing the pressure, the job becomes less onerous and much easier to undertake.

Alternatively, focus on no longer resisting the resistance. The longer you focus on it, the quicker the resistance will dissipate.

An alternative method is the Sedona method, which addresses the negative emotions associated with the dreaded task. Progressively querying yourself and answering a set of questions can release the negative emotion. A similar method focuses instead on cultivating a positive emotion regarding the task, by thinking of a way to generate enthusiasm for it.

Lastly, try putting your procrastination under a microscope. When caught procrastinating, step outside of yourself and become an observer, without trying to change the outcome. Becoming conscious of the process will rob it of its ability to quietly sabotage you.
