Are you on a collision course?

Why do we torture ourselves putting off our academic work?  You know exactly what I am talking about.

We have piles everywhere. Projects we need to do, but we don’t find the time to do them. Do you hear this “Poor Me” attitude?  All the piles of academic work are filling your life with guilt and this guilt is hurting your body and spirit. This is slowly and painfully taking away from our otherwise pleasant experiences. Do you over-extend yourself and get involved in extra activities….anything to get away from the work that surrounds you? Are you prepared to live this tortured existence? Do you want to sit on the side lines while everyone else enjoys life and you suffer with the guilt of not getting things done?  This guilt is draining your life energy.   If you dread walking in the door to face this wall of stuff and undone jobs, let’s figure out a way, together, to combat the guilt and surmount the mountain of work. 

Papers, project, and studying are the things you are avoiding.  The longer you do this the harder it will be to get a grasp on them and succeed. 

Right now, you are living a life of fear.  Fear is the opposite of caring for yourself.  Fear of being without… Fear of not being understood… Fear of not being loved. Fear is lack of faith in yourself. You create this fear, guilt and worry in your life. You put these obstacles in your path, so that you will not find the peace you deserve. Put your faith in yourself and start to get rid of this academic work.  I have given you the tools: All you have to do is listen and start with small jobs. I don’t expect you to get it all done at once, but you have to start somewhere. Many people need to see results immediately; this is our nature. If we don’t we give up and go back to our previous way of life.

I am here to tell you that your world did not get overwhelming overnight and it is not going to get fixed in one day. We are working on changing life-long habits; this is going to take some hard work and consistent routines. It will not be a cake walk, but as you start to see progress, you will be wanting to go full-force and that could work against us.

We work until we are burnt out and then we no longer want to tackle the academic work anymore because we are so tired. This kind of turnaround in your life is like going on a crash diet. You get on a roll doing your schoolwork and, before you know it, you are behind again. 

We are putting our future on a diet; a diet of behavior modification. I am teaching you a new way of tackling your academic work and it starts with establishing routines one habit at a time.

Anyone can do this. It is so simple; you just have to start.  Get you away from social media and the TV and begin your new way of looking at your life. NO MORE GUILT!  You have found the answer. It is within you. Your true spirit is being suffocated by not tackling your academic work. It is a matter of actively working toward your goal of an organized and satisfying academic life. You can do this by using the tools: Your routines, basic weekly plan, and other skills that C.A.N. can help you attain. Are you willing to work? Ask yourself if you ready to change your life. I don’t expect you to do all of this right off the bat. This is not a magic pill that I am giving to you. It is a recipe for Peace and you are the Chef. So, let’s get ready to for the biggest feast of all; a celebration of your love of yourself and your future life.

Do you feel like you are drowning?

Do you feel like you are drowning?

Do you ever feel like you are drowning? You are going down for the last time and no one is there to save you. In fact the whirlpool is about to suck you into the dark abyss. This is how we all feel when we are living in CHAOS! You can’t even remember how you got into the dangerous waters in the first place!

I can tell you exactly how. Procrastination. You didn’t want to look at the problem so you put it off. You probably still don’t want to address the issues that are drowning you.  We do this every single day.

Everything is connected and one thing starts getting sucked into the whirlpool and the rest will follow. Unless you start to pull your own self out one bad habit at a time, you will find yourself in a perpetual cycle of missed deadline, poor grades, and disappointment.

Grab your life preservers!  Stop the insanity!  We need to stop putting off starting that project! We need to stop putting off reading that chapter!  We need to stop putting off going to the health center!  We can find a way and an excuse for putting anything off! We have to stop this right now! Just changing one thing will keep your head above water.

Your excuses are just another form of whining and procrastination.

You are not slow! You are a perfectionist! It is your perfectionism that makes you obsess about something that is quite simple. You are over thinking this. You don’t have to see the top of the staircase to take the first step!

The secret to getting moving is to set your timer and do 10 minutes or even 2 minutes! That is it! Then go onto the next thing on the list.
