Revealed: The ONLY Way To STOP Procrastination


Can’t stop procrastinating?

Have big goals but can’t seem to do the work required to achieve them?

In this video, I breakdown the real reason people procrastinate, and show you how to overcome procrastination once and for all.

Unlike most videos that give you vague explanations or high-level tactics to outwork procrastination, in this video we uncover the root cause of procrastination and boil it down to an exact scientific equation.

The equation that leads to procrastination is:

Drive = Outcome – (% Of Time Remaining)

Once you understand how this effects our ability to set goals and take action, you will never struggle with procrastination again.

In this video, I’m going to show you how to stop procrastination once and for all.

Hi, my name is Connor from Instinct Education. We help business owners grow, and if you’ve ever struggled with procrastination, then you’re definitely not alone. Procrastination affects a lot of people, especially entrepreneurs, when they’re trying to grow their business. I remember when I started out in business, I procrastinated a lot. I had big goals, but I wasn’t able to do the work that actually moved me towards them. Fast forward a couple of years, and now I own two businesses that both do over seven figures revenue each year, and that has come from the ability to learn how to stop procrastinating.

So, in this video, I’m going to break down how to stop procrastinating, what causes procrastination, and once and for all, show you what to do to continuously make progress towards your goals. I’ve watched nearly every video on YouTube about procrastination, and there’s a lot of ideas and a lot of theories, but none of them seem to really nail the recourse. What I have found is that there’s two main reasons that people procrastinate. So, the first is in regards to how we are told to set goals. And the second comes down to how we understand time.

How most people set goals is, they basically compare where they are now, to some point in the future of where they want to be. So, if this is now, and this is then. And so, we basically say, “Here’s where I am. Here’s where I want to be.” And, we’re comparing now to them, we’re saying, “I would rather be here than there.” And, when we do that, what happens is… Well, it creates a lot of problems. And the reason that creates problems is because we’re viewing it as it’s one or the other. And so what can happen is, we can say, “I’m here now. I want to be here in the future.” Let’s say the goal was to make… Let’s say $1 million, and this is one year from now, right? So we’re saying, “One year from now, I want to make $1 million. And this is where I am, and this is where I want to go.”

And so what we do is, we weigh up where we are to where we want to be, because the way we get somewhere is with effort and energy and work. And so, what happens is, we’re comparing where we are now to where we want to be in the future. And we’re trying to decide, “Should I do the work? Should I put in the effort to actually make that future a reality? Would I rather be in that future or would I rather be where I am?”

And the reason that this is wrong to do is, because when you set a goal, you’re not deciding between where you are and where you want to be. Because one year from now, you won’t be where you are today. So, it’s never a choice of where you are versus where you want to be. Because when you’re there, you’re going to be there. In one year’s time, it will be one year’s time, and you won’t be where you are today. So, deciding “Should I give up where I am now for where I want to be tomorrow?” is the wrong way to look at it. Because when tomorrow comes, you’re not going to be where you are. It’s going to be tomorrow. And so, the question or the choice you need to make is, “What tomorrow do I want?”

Either way, you’ll be in tomorrow. You won’t be where you are today. You will be somewhere else. But the choice is not comparing where you are now to where you want to be. The choice is understanding, or the thought is understanding, that, “No matter what, I’m going to be here, and what type of here do I want to be in?” And that really is the first key to understand, that you’re not deciding between where you are and where you want to be. You’re deciding between “When it is this time?”, and it will be, “What future do I want to create?” So you’re not choosing between where you are and where you want to be. You’re choosing between two different futures. So, that’s the first point is how we set goals.

The second and most important thing to understand here has to do with how we perceive time. What most people think is that, the drive or the motivation or the desire to do something… So if we write drive comes from the outcome. And this is what most people think. So, the bigger the outcome, the bigger the driver, the smaller the outcome, the smaller the drive, right? Replace the word drive with motivation. If we have a big goal, we should be motivated to do it. However, that’s not true, because what this equation is forgetting is how we perceive time. And so, drive doesn’t equal outcome. Drive equals outcome, minus the percent of time remaining to achieve that outcome.

And so, let me give you an example of this. Let’s say, if we go back to the example, that this is where you are today, and this is where you want to be. Let’s say, one year from now, again, we’ll say, you want to make $1 million, right? So, this is basically what you want to do. And this is one year. So, the drive is coming from the outcome, which is $1 million, and that’s a pretty good goal. Maybe that’s motivating. But, what we need to factor into this is the percent of time remaining. And so, from where you are, to where you want to be, the percent of time remaining, the amount of time you have left to achieve the goal, is always going to be 100% of time. Because from this moment, you have 100% of the time left to achieve anything that you ever have. You are 100% time remaining. And so, if we know drive equals outcome, minus time remaining, if the outcome is, let’s say, $1 million, and the time remaining is 100%, if we minus 100% from the outcome, the drive is zero.

And that is the problem. Because when we’re looking at where we are to where we want to be, the amount of time we have to achieve it is always going to be 100%. Even if we fast forward into the future, and let’s say, you don’t do anything for six months, and so now we’ve got six months here, six months, the time you have remaining to achieve that goal, whilst it was one year, now it’s six months. From that moment, you still have 100% of time remaining. So, the drive is always going to be the outcome, minus the percent of time remaining. And if we look at time based on where we are, it’s always going to be 100%.

No matter what your goal, if you’re looking at where you are right now, your time to achieve that goal will be 100% of the time you have left. So, the drive, the desire, to achieve something is always going to be zero, because it’s the outcome minus the time remaining. And if you look at where you are, the time remaining is always going to be zero. So, what do we do? What is the solution? Well, the first step is, rather than being like, “This is where I am, and this is where I want to go.” That’s not the way to do it, because you’re not deciding between where you are and where you want to go. What you need to understand is that, in, let’s say one year time, it’s going to be one year. So, it’s not a choice of where you are to where you want to go. It’s a choice of “In one year, what possible future do I want?” Because in one year, you will be somewhere. You’re going to be somewhere. And so, it’s not a good decision to make, to decide between where you are now and where you want to be. Because in a year, you’re going to be there. It’s going to be a year’s time.

So, your choice needs to be, “What future do I want? Do I want this one where I achieve the goal, or this one where I don’t?” And when we do this, when we project ourselves into the future, the percent of time remaining to achieve that goal is now zero, because we’re there. We’ve done it. We’re in the future. There’s no time remaining. And so now, time doesn’t factor into the equation. And so, drive is now based only on the outcome. And we can decide what outcome do we want? Do we want this outcome? Or do we want this outcome? And we can make that decision without the influence of time, and we can decide where we want to go. And then from there, we can understand that if we want this future, the actions that we do today is what gets us there. And if we don’t do certain things today, then we’re not going to get that future. We’re going to get this one, and this might not be the future we want.

So by doing this, we remove the choice of where I am versus where I want to go. And we only focus on where you’re going, because you are going there. Whether it’s the future you want or not, you are going there. So you need to understand, it’s not a choice between where you are and where you want to be. It’s a choice between, when I am there, where do I want to be? And when you do that, you remove time from the equation, because the percent of time remaining to achieve that goal is zero, because you’re there in your mind. And then you can decide, without the influence of time remaining, what outcome you actually want. And then, you’re able to reverse engineer the daily actions, to ensure that that is a future you create. Because if you don’t, you create the other future, and you can see what those two futures are.

And now you can actually work back into now, what actions you need to take to ensure that you get the future that you want. Because either way, you’re going to have that future. You will be a year’s time in the future, one year from now. So, do you want to be in future A or future B? You can decide what that is, and make a decision void of influence of time, because you’re putting yourself into a future when the percent of time remaining is now at zero. And now you can make a solid, sound decision based purely on the outcome, and that is going to then affect how much drive, how much motivation you have.
