The Prepared Don’t Procrastinate

The Prepared Don’t Procrastinate

We often debate the cause of procrastination. While doing so you inevitably ask yourself, “Why am I putting this off?” The most common answer is probably a lack of purpose.

    However, what may really be the problem is a simple lack of planning.

    We know what it is that we want, where it is we want to go, but because we don’t know how to get there and which route to take, we by default procrastinate. Procrastination therefore, is a natural “side effect” of a lack of having executed the necessary preparation and planning.

    And this makes a lot of sense. Why would I postpone finishing something when I have, essentially, already started it by planning?

    Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

    Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

    • Gather new material, both specific and general.
    • The Mental Digestive Process
    • Drop it
    • Poof, the idea appears
    • Work it

    Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
