Friends in our life we all have dreams to be something, to get something, to visit somewhere or to have something. And we all are aware that we have to do certain things for making our dreams true. We try always to do it on time but mostly get postponed. So how to stop postponing?
Sometimes we know the reason behind it and sometimes don’t know but we still regret postponing. This regretting is not a solution. Then the question is how to stop postponing which always takes away our happiness. It may be sometimes by regretting or making late to turning into reality to our dreams.
If you try to find the cause in a relaxed mind, you will find some certain causes, which are fully responsible. Here are they-
- Lack of interest
- Feeling hard and long to the work
- Lack of knowledge
- Time management
- Insufficient resources
- Family interruption/Interference
- Influencing by the outer world
Lack of interest: A major cause of postponing:
All persons around the globe want to do what they love to do. If they got the opportunity to do what they love. Then all can work longer until getting tired because interest always inspires us to do.
Here I would like to memorize that when you were a child you don’t take permission to play. Because you love that, you would not stop until your parents instruct you not to play, that’s the power of interest.
The attraction of work makes no postponing. Because the force comes from the work, which makes this sustainable. That’s why all the motivational speakers say that follow your passion
But opposite this, if the work is not interesting or you do what you don’t love. In this situation, while you do this type of work you would be in the force of result not of the work.
When you forget the result your heart starts skipping. And you should always mind that you have to do the work only, the result will come automatically after work. And the result is not in our control.
So, interest should be in the work. This is the universal truth “Humans can’t stay in force from the outer world longer by themselves”. This is the basic cause of unsustainability in work.
In this condition for stoping postponed, we need to bring an interest in our work. For interest, we can add some interesting things, change the way of doing or bring creativity. You can do your uninteresting part with the help of others.
If I said in one line “Make your work interesting” and stop postponing.
Feelings of hard and long to the work: Cause of postponing
This is the human tendency that all want easy and simple things to do, which can complete easily and soon.
Opposite this when we got some hard and long work to do. In that situation, our heart starts looking for an easy way to do.
In case of not finding, our heart starts skipping by different skipping things. Like- mobile and laptop, watching the movie, playing the games or gossiping or by doing other work. And our goal looks far.
We would not be able to have patients longer. We start doing other works parallelly. Because of getting busy, the primary work starts postponing. This is also a major cause of postponing.
As we got the reason “hardness” which is physically nothing. As Mr Sandeep Maheshwari has said that “Aasan Hai”, means in reality nothing is hard & tough. Which we love and know how to do that is easy, which we don’t love and don’t know that is hard. Are you excited to know How to eradicate the feelings of hardness and long?
Here are tips –
- If you are feeling long to the work, in this condition break the work in small part and do one by one. Once you complete the 1st one you will feel good and this will encourage you. Eventually, one by one this long work would be complete easily.
- In the case of unknowing the way of doing, 1st we need to learn how to do. And don’t look at the whole work break in small parts and focus on the smaller one and think about completing it early. Here is an example:
- The person who has taken the loan, if he looks at the whole amount, will get afraid of how to pay such a big amount. Instead, he looks at one instalment only, which is easy to pay, this way one by one he pays the big amount easily.
- While doing your work concentrate on that only and think about it only. (Like- Its benefit, easy way to do, parts that can you delegate, where do you need to take the help, focus on the challenges and its solution). Don’t think about other’s interesting work. By doing this you will start taking interest in your work and the feeling of hardness will get removed.
Lack of background knowledge: Cause of postponing
Sometimes, we plan to start a work and we would also have full confidence. But wouldn’t have a clear idea, our way of doing would not seem clear. Sometimes because of this too we avoid the work.
Bad thing is that we never admit our lack. This is like “a person is going to a certain place while he doesn’t have a clear idea how to go. He takes a long time to reach his destination. Instead of this when he has a clear idea of the destination, he reaches early
Now here it’s clear that less knowledge about the work is also a cause of postponing. So, we should have enough knowledge about our work.
For improving our knowledge, we need to read, take the suggestion and search on the internet etc.
Best time management means no postponing:
In our ordinary lives, we have so many things to do, and all are important. So, we can’t avoid any of them.
In this circumstance, we need to prioritise, delegate the work, and learn to manage time better.
We should always mind among all works our primary work is most important,
Insufficient resources: Cause of Postponing
This is the human tendency that all humans want to save wealth. And doing this results not to have enough resources.
Insufficient resources is a cause of being challenging and getting stretched to the work. In some cases, finance also plays the role of resource.
Naturally, all humans want easy work to do. When they encounter challenges they try to avoid or skip or postpone. So have enough resources for making work easy and stop postponing.
Family interference: A cause of Postponing
As we all have experienced that there are so many works at our home, and we all used to do all those while being at home.
If you are busy with your work at the same time someone from your family asks you to do something else. if you went to accomplished the asking, you will get disturbed and your work will postpone.
In some cases, if someone from your family does work and their work interrupts you. Or you do work and your work interrupts your family member and they ask you to do later. This way also interruption comes from family.
For this, you need to set the priority. You can select a different place. Or you can consult with your family members and share the importance of your work. By doing this you can stop postponing. But don’t try to get angry or force anyone, because this spoils the relations.
Influencing by the outer world: A major cause of postponing
You have heard so many motivational speeches “If you control yourself you can do anything”. Instead of this if the outer world controls you that would be a very difficult situation.
In this condition, you can’t do anything by yourself. The outer world will govern you.
More difficult thing is that you can’t be able to understand that the outer world is governing you. You will feel I am doing these all by myself.
Here is an example-
If you are going to do your work and someone asks you to play cricket you went out to play. You will feel that you went by yourself. But you wanted to do your work that’s why you were going to do. Who governed you?
Someone asks you to play or not, if you would not go to play, your work would be done. And asking by someone is not in your control. But going out is in your control.
Suppose you are doing work and something is happening in your community. You went out to watch, and you kept watching. Another side your own work stays remained and your time got passed.
You will think that you kept watching by yourself. But you wanted to complete your work that’s why you were doing. Who governed you?
If you would not keep watching your work would be completed. And anything happening in your community is not in your control but keep watching is in your control.
Now, here is clear that if you went out to play or kept watching you got influence by the outer world. It means you are being controlled by the outer world. Like these countless skipping things are around us.
Mobile phones, gossiping & discussion and television are a few of skipping things. This is also a big cause of postponing. In this condition, we need to look at what is important and urgent. When you understood that what is important your vision would be clear what you should do. Like this, you start governing yourself and stop postponing.
Sickness: A big reason of postponing
Wellness is the thing that gives us comfort to do any work. If you are fit & healthy you will enjoy everything. Otherwise, you will not enjoy playing too.
With sickness, it is not possible to do work, so sickness is also a cause of postponing. This is the very common thing that all know when we are not well our body doesn’t allow us to do work. So stay healthy stop postponing, Keep smiling do your work and Aage Jao.
Thanks for staying long.
