Wow a Butterfly!Written by Kenia Morales
Okay, I am sure that you clicked on this title out of curiosity. Wow a butterfly; what would a butterfly have to do with self help content? And you are right. Not a thing! But it is phrase that my daughter used when she saw a butterfly while playing outside. She said it with so much excitement that I could not help but feel excited for her too.
Now, I know it sounds kind of cute. But, what I am trying to communicate is that children seem so happy because they are overall excited. They get excited with a toy, an animal, a game, a hug, a friend etc. They are happy to just wake up another day; they have so much to look forward to (anything).
As adults we can also appreciate beauty of a butterfly but, I am not quite sure we would get so excited. We have seen butterflies more times than them but, most importantly life in general gets on our way not allowing us to have enough time to contemplate. Those who even dare to dream out loud are often discouraged by peers. Why? We have all bought in to this notion that life is hard. Which is partly true but, everything is not terrible. Sometimes we overlook good things.
Procrastinator No More!Written by Kenia Morales
Procrastination is when ever we postpone a task or duty intentionally without a valuable explanation. It is a natural tendency in people. Let’s face it, sometimes we are tired or a specific task is unpleasant to perform and we respond by putting it off until later. If it happens only once or on something of not much importance it is okay. But, what happens when a student keeps putting off school work. At last minute he may want to make up for lost time but fails class. So, can you see how procrastination can get in way of your success and objectives? Therefore, it is crucial for people to learn how to avoid this negative tendency and manage it effectively. Below I have added some tips that can convert anyone in to a procrastinator no more!
•On a daily basis make a “to do list”. Check each completed item as you go. •Prioritize, do first what is most important. This way if you do not have a chance to do other ones (for any reason) at least, you have completed most important duties. •When there are tasks that you rather avoid classify them between most tedious and lighter ones. Do ones that you find less amusing first. Once you are done with ones you dislike your day will flow extra smoothly.
