How to fight procrastination

Hi, I'm a shareware developer, long-term reader of this group, and that is why i'm writing it here. The question was touched several times. I studied many scientific, philosophical books and blogs (including such shareware indie game developer as Steve Pavlina) during 3 years, and finally I found the correct solution.

The conclusion from my own experience/research. I want to underline that it is only my humble opinion. And I respect all your opinions.

One of the main problems of modern atheistic psychology is that it doesn't give precise explanation of human subconsciousness. Atheistic science hides the fact that human subconsciousness consists of separate, absolutely independent 'mind conductors' (something like meta-persons) which can move through the network of human minds. These meta-persons can cause different undesirable side-effects for the state of mind or for the state of body. Psychology hides this fact, proposing false theories.

How to fight procrastination and improve your life significantly (the real solution):

ATTRACT GOOD MIND CONDUCTORS

Step 1. Choose popular religion.
Step 2. Observe the proposed model of behaviour that is described in the religious book.
Step 3. Regularly (at least one time per week) have contacts with people of the same religion.

Yes, I know, we have a digital era, internet, cell phones, software and it is very hard to believe that the real solution is so simple.

I wish you good luck, success in business and in your family!

IMHO, human body handles several additional independent meta-persons with different mind algorithms. I don't know the underlying technology. But they can be attracted using synchronous event triggers inside the group of people with the same concept. So, I would say it is not just refocusing, but something like rational reprogramming. Attracting rational, positive, good meta-persons, that will help in work and in family.

Or...

If we generalize from your 3-step approach by removing "religion", then the result is:

1) Pick the mental pattern you would like to follow
2) Do as the pattern says
3) Regularly meet with the people who follow the pattern of choice.

In that case, it does make sense. In short, you are trying to say "spend time with the people who you want to become like and act/think like them".

As long as you choose the right pattern to copy and the right people to follow, it should work. Deciding which is the right pattern and who are the right people to follow are not easy at all though.

Procrastination is a type of behavior which is characterized by deferment of actions or tasks to a later time.

For an individual, procrastination may result in the loss of personal productivity. Chronic procrastination may be a sign of an influence of irrational mind conductors.

The word itself comes from the Latin word procrastinatus: pro- (forward) and crastinus (of tomorrow). The term's first known appearance was in Edward Hall's Chronicle (The union of the two noble and illustre famelies of Lancestre and Yorke), first published sometime before 1548. The sermon reflected procrastination's connection at the time to task avoidance or delay, volition or will, and sin.

Scott, God does really exist, and the system to achieve social balance is really very complex.

The right model of social behaviour is a key. That's why religion is so important.

If someone does not believe in God, or doesn't want to stick to the model of correct social behaviour, then another concept will be proposed to such a person, for example atheistic concept of eternal death and instincts, aliens and ufos, scientology, sectarian brain-washing, different trash through hollywood movies etc. Every individual has a free will to choose the rules of the game.

But popular religion can really help to improve life.

There are so many things wrong with this thread that I dont know where to start.  It must be some sort of joke/wind up right ?

My biggest problem is the complete lack of explanation as to why if you 'choose a popular religion' (is this even possible?), a byproduct of that choice will be that you somehow magically manage to prevent procrastination.  Why is this so ?

Statements like,

Atheistic science hides the fact that human subconsciousness consists of separate, absolutely independent 'mind conductors' (something like meta-persons) which can move through the network of human minds.

is complete and utter nonsense. It is meaningless to a rational secular human being.

You can employ any number of well researched, well practised methods for ordering your time and mental processes to help you avoid procrastination. 

Put your faith in your ability to change yourself - not in religion.

I find the premise of this post a little odd.  Religion to prevent procrastination?  Maybe you are really just looking for a little meaning in your life, and you think religion is the only way to go?

Maybe you should try Humanism.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humanism_%28life_stance%29
You don't need an imaginary friend that will make you happy after you are worm food to need direction do you?

Personally, I think religion exists because people are afraid of the unknown.  They need to pretend that there is some magical invisible being that will take care of them.  It gives them comfort, because they believe the only other option is that the universe doesn't care about them, and things will happen to them randomly and out of their control.

Procrastination is a sign that you aren't sure of which way to proceed, or you need a positive direction to move forward.  Procrastination is a sign of indecision or fear.  While Religion may cure this.  I don't think religion is the only way to cure it.  You just need a little direction in your life.  Decide what you want out of life, and the procrastination goes away because you have a clear path of how to get there (hopefully)

In my experience, answering questions without being asked first is the surest way to get yourself some serious negative attention.

I suggest you keep this stuff to yourself unless you are directly asked. Or if you can't keep it bottled up inside, then start a blog and let people who are seeking answers come to you. Evangelism isn't going to get you anywhere, but I am probably talking to deaf ears since you are not seeking advice either! Oh the irony... :P

It is the same. They have a lot of names. But I strongly recommend to stay away from scientology. This sect is controlled by the group of irrational meta-persons. Meta-persons must be ignored. It is a big sin to contact them, ask them, pray to them etc.

Great, until now the only thing missing in this forum was a religious believer preaching.

Religious people are good to do routine work but they fail when it comes to complex programming tasks. It seems that the same mindset necessary to believe in some god blocks critical thinking so they write awful programs.

I had a couple of religious developers and they were pretty bad programmers. That is why in my company I will never hire a religious person again.

The problem was not that the code was messy and ugly. Many people write ugly code. The real problem was with the mindset of people writing the code. It was definitely the mindset of people not used to asking the question "And what if I am wrong?" Instead it was the mindset of someone used to saying "There's only one God."

The irony is that I had exactly the same opinion about religious people when I was atheist. I thought that there's no good mathematicians, programmers, logical thinkers among them etc.

As a programmer I would say the following: We are pawns in a big reality-show 'chess game'. All atheistic scientists are also just pawns. They conduct their experiments, but the results of some of these experiments sometimes can be carefully forged by meta-persons. This is a very strange world from the point view of programmer.

You can try to combine different ancient teachings such as yoga-sutras or new testament, create deductive model, and you will find a lot of interesting things about the Big Game on the Earth and the Rules of social balance. Irrational meta-persons do everything in order to avoid deep analysis and discussion of such themes as subconsciousness. That's why many of the participants of this topic called the theory about them as a 'weirdest thing'. Exactly. Try to think logically: how can I prove you that meta-persons does exist under the pressure of their network? It is almost impossible.

I'm a christian fundamentalist by several definitions. So I like to answer few things in this discussion.
Religion is not solution to procrastination. Experience tells me this. I do procrastinate a lot. I know others who procrastinate and a bornagain christians too, and others who do not procrastinate and are bornagains. Its more kind of solution to other problems like... (non exhaustive list)
Feeling empty inside, being alcoholic, drug addictions, feeling not worthy of anything, suicidal depression, loneliness...
Its long list of things that christianity solves, but procrastination is something I haven't seen solved by religion. Christianity is a solution to these, and its safetynet against some of problems its a solution. However getting in partially is far less effective than just jumping in. It started my from just "giving God a chance to proof its worth it and deciding to go for it fully for a while."

Islam isn't growing because they convince others by talking, its growing mostly by  breeding fast, and "convert or else" actions where they are 60% or more. Going details here would definitely be off topic.
In europe its immigration, breeding, and lack of breeding by europeans that changes the democgraphics here.

What I found helping procrastination, is just a todo list, and avoidance of things that get me into procrastination.

IMHO, procrastination may be considered as a type of addiction. From my experience, very often the source of many unexplained addictions are coming from demons (electro-magnetic/quantum creatures) or from more primitive entities.

However procrastination may be induced by human mind. That's why I've said that this method is not a panacea for everyone.

I'm a Christian, and I used to be a terrible procrastinator... sure I would say from the Bible I am / was challenged on not procrastinating - but the biggest difference was meeting / marrying my wife - who is highly organised, highly disciplined and _never_ procrastinates.

If you want to get over procrastination, you just need to spend time with people who aren't procrastinators. In work I think this works best if a colleague / boss lines you up tasks which need to be done by tomorrow so that you don't have the opportunity to slack of... keep doing that and you will get in a rhythm of work. Also just get some kind of to-do list (whether paper or electronic), the satisfaction of crossing something of a list is a fantastic feeling

Atheists don't ask questions. They believe to scientists, that are often fooled by meta-persons.

I know, Shareware Developer! I completely agree. I'm proud of you because you're standing up for what you believe in, in this hostile and cold environment.

It is only mind-conducting that can bring mankind together in peace and unity. I know I'm right because everybody who disagrees with me is close-minded and unwilling to consider it might be true. Close-minded people are definitely not part of our interconnected collective, and because of their unwillingness to take part in the unifying assimilation they can never achieve true productivity.

I have seen the light. I know it all to be true. I can *feel* it. Scientists plot against those who understand how mind-conducting works, because from a scientific point of view mind-conducting makes absolutely no sense. This, of course, means that science is wrong, because I can feel my connectedness when I pray with those dear to me.

Anyone can choose the world without God, and their meta-persons will maximally adapt the atheistic environment for them inside the network.

It can't be *proven* that it exist in the environment of high mental pressure that we have today, but it also can't be *proven* that it doesn't exist. It is the greatest puzzle.

Senseless? Not at all. All animals fight continuously. It's our ability and willingness to fight that put us on the top of the food-chain in the first place. In fact, we *eat* everything we consider inferior to ourselves. How's that for brutality? Wars between humans are simple: people take what they want when they can get away with it. Infants hit their friends on the head just to get to play with their favorite toy car. Adults just fight the high-stakes games. It's just human nature. Not going to change anytime soon.

>Sniffing glue

Your questions are crafty, and just smearing the essence. They are coming from this hollywood sci-fi nonsense, that was induced by meta-persons.

Let's repeat the question:

Is there a network of human subconsciousnesses?

This is very important question, because if the answer is 'yes', then we must learn the rules of correct social behaviour in the god's network system. We must learn how to distinguish influence of rational/irrational meta-persons. How to live in this strange world of total fake. We must follow the rules of religion.

Science will never ask this question publicly, because of high pressure of irrational meta-persons. Atheistic scientists are pawns, zombie in the hands of their irrational puppeteers.

As an experiment, you can ask them this question about the network of subconsciousnesses, and you will see their very strange behaviour/speech induced by irrational meta-persons.


War has no logical sense.

Real logical sense: intellectual solutions of problems.


>All animals fight continuously.


Exactly! And I (as a human) don't like it. Many irrational meta-creatures are often coming from the old evolutional sub-network of subconsciousnesses of animals. Something like animal sons of God. They are smart.

These irrational meta-persons and animal-like meta-creatures (irrational mind conductors) often like when people listen to their irrational fake thoughts, obey them, they like when people behave like animals or create scientific theories to behave like animals. In this way people avoid human network rules (religion). Actually, this allows them to do their irrational predatory stuff everywhere in the world.

They have ideal technologies: quantum copy/creation of any material objects.

Come on, we are almost there. Just 22 more posts and we will break the century mark on what has now become the most off-topic thread in the history of BoS.

I implore you not to stop now. If we work together we can procrastinate just long enough on real work to make it happen.

Go! Go! Go!

"[T]heir meta-persons will maximally adapt the atheistic environment for them inside the network."

Wow, somebody must have uploaded a new phrase corpus to the postmodernism generator.


Okay, and I'll bite on the question: "Is there a network of human subconsciousnesses OR not ?"

No.








Oh, did you want proof? Sorry, the person proposing the thesis has to provide the proof. Unless along with throwing out the scientific method you're *also* planning on throwing out the rules of rational argument. But I know you can't be doing that, since you seem so concerned with "rational/irrational meta-persons."

So, your turn: Your proof for the existence of a network of human subconsciousnesses is ... ?

(Are we approaching 100 yet?)

What is the basis of any proof? We can use only pure logic for creating *abstract* models and for probability evaluation. Algorithms of probability evaluation are controlled by meta-persons. For example, if I would say that many people have evidences that spiritism / telekinesis / telepathy really works, and that there's something like electromagnetic bio-laser based on human body, then meta-persons of atheists will block critical thinking, and will suggest to believe to 'official' representatives of atheistic science that have 'ideal' basis for all proofs.

The model of rational/irrational meta-persons is very old, and it is based on New Testament from Bible (Christianity) in which concurrent participants of the system are controlled by different groups of virtual participants. The subconsciousness of human being can be controlled by more than 7-8 independent meta-creatures. It is impossible to prove it (in the conditions of total control of the network and limitations of individual subconsciousnesses), but it is also impossible to logically deny it.

Christian people know that if you follow the rules, then life is improving significantly. There's invisible hand of God, that controls all these groups of meta-creatures.

Also, unhappiness is caused by meta-persons of atheists. Because they demand evidence and logical coherency they make it impossible for anybody to believe and be happy. This is why I have come to you to preach about the true theory.

Stop thinking critically, I implore you!

Only with an open mind can you embrace all the evidence of laser spiritism and bio-degradable telekinesis. And you must always follow The Rules ( ISBN 978-0446602747 ), as I said before. This is the book you need to get rid of all the pesky those meta-persons.

When is this bullshit going to get deleted?

FAKE POST.

You have NO logical arguments against the model described in Bible and interpreted by Shareware Developer (only by using modern words).

From New Testament (Bible):

"...the unclean spirit, when he is gone out of the man, passeth through waterless places, seeking rest, and findeth it not. Then he saith, I will return into my house
whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man becometh worse than the first. Even so shall
it be also unto this evil generation."

@Gerry,

PLEASE, PLEASE don't have them delete this post. We are oh so close to that very rare 100th post.

I agree it should have been deleted a long time ago, but now I think it will be just wrong to delete it now when we have come this far.

Come on folks, let's get to 100 so we can get this over with already.

Magically irritating words for atheists: "a network of human subconsciousnesses".

There's no enemies among people, because all people are connected using the network of human subconsciousnesses.

@The End,

You are going to single handedly get us over the century mark in posts. Good work! :-)

Show of hands: Who thinks "Shareware Developer" is a bot?

Seriously, I could imagine loading a bunch of phrases into PomoGen and getting something like these posts. But I don't think I could intentionally create something so utterly garbled while still having a sense of coherence.

Whoever is doing this is either a bot, a genius, or a lunatic.
