The Procrastination Course

With my procrastination video course, my promise is that you'll never procrastinate or suffer from inaction or indecision again.

So here's my theory. Are your ready? I believe procrastination is caused by deeply rooted feelings of guilt. There you have it, no need to take this course!

 

Well not quite. In the 14 core videos, we'll break this down in some detail.

 

Almost all advice on how to stop procrastination is bad. That's why almost all the books and videos people turn to for help fail them. They then just gives up and assume they must be 'inherently lazy' or 'lacking self-discipline'.

Not so. We'll go into detail on the hidden rewards we get out of procrastination (unhealthy rewards, but rewards nonetheless). I promise you that once you learn why you're doing it (constantly putting off action you consider important), the problem starts to disappear from your life.

 

Right now, you may have no idea what it feels like to live as an ex-procrastinator. You have no idea what it feels like to stop self-sabotaging and actually start living up to your potential.

 

You will discover this in the course. Not only that, but you'll start to have a lot more fun in your life.

Who is this Course for?

 

You've heard all the advice before...Just do it, stop being lazy, get focused...blaah blahh blahh. Procrastination ruined the quality of my life for several years. In this course, I want to show you how I overcame it. I've become something of an expert on this subject and I'll show you everything I know.

If you are ready for something different (to the usual advice), then bring your open mind to this course. You'll learn that you procrastinate for A REASON. Once you hear what it is, consistent, achievable action will come automatically to you.

Fighting with yourself is not the answer. Nor is being 'lazy' (no such thing by the way). There is an easy way to be naturally productive. It's who you were born to be before incorrect programming got in your way. In this course, we'll remove it.

Who is this course for? It's for anyone who wants to understand why they procrastinate and how to stop. Students (High-school, University, Post-grads, etc) who are not studying. People who feel like they are constantly under pressure, but are not being productive. People who want to start their own business, follow a dream, or start a side-hustle.

 

It's for anyone who wants to get more done, without the self-judgement and criticism and is sick to death of being told to 'just do it' or that they're 'lazy'. ​Basically, this course is for anyone who wants to understand themselves better and who wants to start living a more deliberate, conscious, productive, enjoyable life.

Course Overview

Introduction to Procrastination Course

7:26

Who is this course for? How can it help? What can you except? This is the first video in our procrastination course. 

Bad advice on Procrastination

35:24

(why the 'hustle' and 'grind' mentality doesn't work)

Let's jump right into our goal of overcoming procrastination. In our first video, we'll discuss the outline of this programme in detail. We'll also discuss:

  • Exactly what you need to do.

  • What it feels like to procrastinate.

  • The importance of creating a new type of language/self-talk.

  • Why you've struggled to solve this issue (the bad advice on how to stop procrastinating)

  • The fact that you already know ‘what’ to do. The issue is simply that something is blocking you from doing it.

Why you think you are lazy 

16:43

(understanding the roots of this outdated concept)

In solving your issue with procrastination, we need a little background knowledge first. In this video, we'll look at:

- The importance of beliefs (and why incorrect beliefs make us procrastinate)

- The central principle that Action is an ‘effect’ and not a ‘cause’

- The 3-levels of motivation

- The 2 theories of beliefs (the lie and the truth)

- Seeds – the root cause of the problem of procrastination

Why you continue to believe you are lazy

15:00

(understanding programming)

In this video we touch on a vital aspect of the programme - the fact that you have a choice in what you choose to believe. Again, this is leading to the solution later in the programme. This sets the scene for the exercises to come that will be fundamental in ending procrastination for good.

The Lazy mind VS the Bossy mind 

16:51

(The cause of all indecision)

In this video, we really start to understand why you procrastinate. We look at the inner struggle that takes place in your mind when you're procrastinating. There are essentially two parts to the mind - the lazy mind and the bossy mind. We'll look at how to end this inner conflict by introducing the idea of the 'compassionate mind'. It is here that everything starts to shift. 

We'll also look at how procrastination has a detrimental effect on your self-esteem by looking at examples of how it plays out in real life. This one is essential viewing.

Examining ‘have to do’ things

19:05

(the early roots of the internalized bully) 

In our next video on how to overcome procrastination, we examine a core belief in the procrastination mindset - the belief that you 'HAVE TO' do certain things in life. This is a debilitating concept to hold when it comes to personal productivity and freedom.

In this video, we'll also be looking at:

  • The role of self-esteem and how vitally important it is to ending procrastination.

  • When procrastination begins in life (understanding how it manifests itself in childhood and that we now have a choice to take back our power).

  • How procrastination destroys self-esteem (continuing to procrastinate is why you continue to feel bad about yourself).

Top 7 myths that support procrastination 

16:09

(drop the programming)

To move past procrastination, we'll be radically changing how we talk to ourselves. We'll be making an entirely new story about our relationship to personal productivity and achievement. To do this, we need to look at the mistakes people in language when trying to self-motivate. In this video we'll look at the top 7 myths that procrastinators believe are helpful, but which are actually detrimental to taking action. We'll look at:

  • The myth that if you take more action, this will make you a better person (this is wrong because your value as a person is already firmly established and relies on nothing external).

  • The myth that 'success' is the most important thing in life. While there is nothing wrong with success, putting it on a pedestal actually leads to paralysis. We need a more balanced indifference to start taking consistent action.

  • The myth that all action we take should lead to progress. This is important to debunk as the only thing that matters is showing up and trying. Failures experienced after action is a natural (and hugely useful) part of achievement.

  • The Myth that you need to have 'credentials' to take action. This is a subtle myth which actually causes procrastination. We'll discuss how you are always ready to move forward and never have to wait.

  • The myth that you need to make detailed plans for taking action. This one is hugely important and it is a common mistake which leads to procrastination.

  • The myth that you have to put in long hours and work yourself into the ground (hint, this devastating to motivation).

  • The myth that you have to sacrifice pleasures in life to become disciplined. Of all the myths that need to be debunked, this is by far the biggest.

The story technique

17:11

(how to speak to the procrastination mindset)

Here, we look at practical exercises you'll be using to overcome procrastination. To begin, we look at the fundamental, daily exercise I want you to start implementing. We'll talk about:

  • How using a 'story' is the most effective way to change your self-talk.

  • Why affirmations are not effective.

  • The importance of consistency in implementing this exercise daily. 

  • An example of what the 'story' of a procrastinator typically looks like.

  • An example of a different type of 'story' you can use as a template while you draft and create your own 'story'.

Alternatives to ‘the story’ technique

12:14

(adding to your tool belt)

In this video, we'll look at some alternative exercises you can add to your tool belt in overcoming procrastination. While your story will be the primary tool you'll use (at least for the first few months), these tools can be invaluable additions at certain times. You'll learn about:

  • Gratitude listing

  • The 'wouldn't it b nice if' technique

  • The importance of journalling

  • The success/failure forgiveness technique

Tackling painful thoughts as they come up 

7:13

(How to spot self-deception)
This video is one final tool you can utilize to deal with the negative emotions that can come up that can lead to procrastination. Here, I introduce you to 'the work' of Byron Katie. This simple, profound, 4-step technique allows you to drop limiting or painful beliefs within minutes (given you have an open mind and willingness to be self-compassionate).

Simplifying with your delegate 

17:08

(How to deal with things that don't matter)

In this video on procrastination, we look at why we tend to feel either overwhelmed or deprived when working towards a goal. The fundamental ideas we examine here is that people are never good at multi-tasking (contrary to what you may have heard). By taking on too many tasks, we feel overwhelmed and paralysed. But by denying that we want to do multiple things, we become disheartended. How do we solve this? Id this video, I'll introduce you to the biggest helper you'll ever have in this world - your delegate. You'll learn:

  • How to achieve balance while working towards a single goal.

  • How to never lose focus.

Case studies

Hi David, just wanted to tell you I worked 6h 55m yesterday and could not stop working (record for a long time). I felt amazing and it was so fun to work. There was no pressure or anxiety. Thanks sooo much! Your method works like magic :)

“I’ve been implementing some of the concepts already and they have been very helpful. Specifically, the Non-negotiable play time, and using no work as a punishment for missing a deadline. Both have been a game changer so far.”
