Getting to Action

Introduction The best time to make a change is the moment it becomes clear that a change is necessary. It is also the easiest time because the more a needed change is delayed, the more insurmountable it becomes. If half-heartedness is to be changed into enthusiasm, frustration into fulfilment, or failure into success, then change in attitude, perception, and behaviour is in order. The surest way to jeopardize success is procrastination. It can throw you off track and gradually dampen your drive and motivation. It can diminish your effectiveness and frustrate your potential. Your productivity can even reach a near-zero point. Your achievements will then be a thin representation of what you are capable of. Procrastination can further hurt your physical and emotional health and keep you in a constant stressful state because of your inability to actualize your personal aspirations and dreams of becoming a person of significance. It can even kill whatever self-confidence you have left and drive you deeper into debilitating self-doubt. I believe that major personal weaknesses can be addressed positively to become great personal successes, and that a problem can be intelligently transformed into a blessing. The deepest weakness, drawback, incapacity, or fear that we have can often be the very resource for our success, becoming the signpost that points our way to fulfilment. Each of us has a major question to find the answer to, an issue to find a solution for, and that issue is at the core of our being. Though we sometimes hide them from others, we are very aware of the constant nagging problems that demand resolution for our lives to be fulfilling. Procrastination is just such a weakness, hampering one's potential for success. But once tackled and controlled, it can open up the path to fulfilment and actualization of one's true potentiality. In the following pages, I offer a new understanding of procrastination and help develop a new mindset for getting things done-one that gets people to work on their inner growth, not just on action planning and organizing. I suggest a revolutionary outlook on procrastination, one that understands that procrastination is not always a bad thing, that it provides a clue to what's really going on within one's inner consciousness (or the subconscious) and what that inner consciousness is trying to communicate. Procrastination is an internal mechanism of signalling what's in alignment with one's true self and what's not. It is one of the means of discovering one's true self. I've always been interested in probing behind the scenes, exploring beyond the facade into the core of the soul, into the subconscious. I've always been keen to discover the inner meanings and hidden causes of visible effects. Metaphors are intriguing and revealing at the same time; they are these exquisite expressions that are applied to unrelated objects or activities in order to represent a symbol of the deeper sense implied in the representation. I believe that the word "procrastination" is such an expression. It is a metaphor for the need to find out more about the workings of one's inner self that has created obstacles of its own. If that is the case, then procrastination will fade away as we discover more about what is going on behind the screens we use for shelter. The process I suggest here will do exactly that, if one follows the strategies and practices given in these pages. The key to understanding ourselves is to grasp the core methodology of our responses. This will disclose our unique and systematic thought processes. For every human being confronted with a situation-any situation, from benign daily affairs to the most threatening or bizarre ones-a process of evaluation and calculation is triggered that is transformed into the meaning of that situation for us. This goes on every day and determines how we perceive things, what things m
