One of the most significant issues for many people these days is procrastination, or not doing what you should do.
One of the reasons is that we are now rarely in a position where we have to do something.
Just think about our ancestors from 100 years ago. Whether it rains or shines, whether you’re in the mood or not, the cows need to be milked, and the horses cared for.
When your survival depends on working on the land and the animals, you would need to do it either way. There was no other way around it. Your “mood” was secondary.
Procrastination can be particularly problematic when it’s YOUR project. So there’s no one else you need to answer to. You can simply delay it. If you don’t do that project today because you don’t feel like it, you can do it tomorrow or the next day.
But… your work is different from your mood. It’s something else.
You need to dissociate your work from your mood and your inspirations. You can be moody later in your free time, but when you have something to do, you do it.
You don’t wait around for the muse to strike.
This is the difference between professionals and amateurs. A professional writer will write whether he feels like it or not.
The famous writer Stephen King said this:
“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”
This is from a famous author that wrote over 80 books(!), screenplays, short stories, etc. Considering he is in his 70s, think about how much he has to write daily to accomplish that.
Do you think he is in the mood every day? Or is he one of the lucky few that is inspired every day?
As he said himself, far from it. But he is a professional writer, so he writes.
When you’re connected to your Will, you can control everything else in your body.
You can be moody, but you have a stronger command inside, so you go do your work.
You are not “inspired” to do something, but your Will can still command your mind and body to sit still and do what you need to do.
The Will is the missing key in doing what needs to be done.
That’s what we train in the course:
