Some people are prepared for their online classes well in advance.

I’m not one of them. I ALWAYS prepare stuff last minute.

This used to stress me out.

It made me feel guilty and ashamed, as if I did something wrong.

WHY did I wait until the last minute, AGAIN?! Why couldn’t I finish my preparations well in advance, like “normal” people?!

I saw myself as a perpetual procrastinator and felt bad about that.

Because procrastinating means you’re either too lazy or too scared to do stuff you KNOW you should do, right?

All that’s changed.

I still prepare everything last minute.

But:

A) I no longer feel bad about it;

B) It no longer stresses me out;

C) I no longer think there’s anything wrong with me, and

D) I feel relaxed about it now.

What’s changed?

Two things.

Firstly, I embrace that this is how it works for me.

In the week leading up to an online class, I’m internally digesting and reflecting on the content.

Ideas drop into my mind at random times.

Bit by bit, the content falls into place in the background of my daily life.

Sometimes, I write down an idea. But more often, the inspiration isn’t ready to be grasped yet. Until the day of (or before) the class.

Everything that’s been percolating for days now flows out in bullet points, half sentences, single words.

Once the class starts, the content flows out effortlessly. Every. Time.

Secondly, I learned that procrastination isn’t a problem to overcome.

It’s just your mind not agreeing with what your intuition tells you.

When you listen to your intuition, EVERYTHING gets done at the right time. (Even when the mind disagrees.)

Life has a natural flow and rhythm, just like you have.

Instead of seeing procrastination as a problem to overcome, see it as a signal that you’re out of sync with your natural rhythm.

Maybe you need rest. Maybe you need to change what you’re doing.

You don’t have to analyze or understand this sign.

The only things you need to know are these:

Don’t force yourself and don’t push through resistance.

Go with what feels right in this moment instead.

Embrace YOUR natural way of doing things.

That works best for YOU. Forget about what others do and just do you.

Always listen to your intuition.

Your intuition guides your natural flow.

And embrace procrastination as a sign that you don’t need to the thing you want to force yourself to do. (At least, you don’t need to do it NOW.)

Happy procrastinating! 😉
