In my course “How To Become A Poker Millionaire” i mention that procrastination usually happens when your dreams are not strong enough.

In the course there is a step by step system outlined. The first step is “Your goals & dreams”. Now i understand that it is easy to say “you just don’t want it badly enough” . However, that is the real truth, because if you did want it badly enough you would not be procrastinating.

So deep down we KNOW for a fact that all our reasons are just a bunch of bullshit. You don’t need advanced courses on procrastination. Going through those courses is actually a fact of procrastination!

In other words, my job here is simply to show you which type of bullshitter you are, so you can have a big laugh about it and then stop using excuses!

I have taken some information from this site, but use the parts that i believe are relevant for poker.

Here are the 7 types of procrastinators:

  1. Mañana – “I’ll do it tomorrow.”

    BPC teaches: The second best time to change your future is now. The best time was yesterday

  2. Contingent mañana – “I’ll do it tomorrow, if …”

    BPC teaches: There is no “if” in winner. Winners are winners no matter what

  3. Grasshopperism – “I need to have some well-earned fun first.” (In Aesop’s fable, the grasshopper fiddled and played all summer while the ants stored up winter supplies. When winter came, the grasshopper suffered.)

    BPC teaches: NOTHING that you are doing (unless you are a heart surgeon!) has ANY impact on your life. NOTHING you are doing today is important at all. You are insecure and you will waste your life with this type of thinking. Look at your boring life and your wasted time. Do you really think you can’t do something different for only 3 or 6 months ??? Something that will give you the chance to enter new horizons (like our CFP program)

  4. Escapism – “I’ve got to get out for a while to clear my mind.”

    BPC teaches: Classical running away because you hate reality. You don’t like clear results and numbers. You have an inflated ego and are afraid to see the reality. Time to accept the way you are right now and work towards who you want to become. RIGHT NOW.

  5. Impulsiveness – “My problem will be solved if I change my major, or attend a different

    college, or … ”

    BPC teaches: This is similar to point 2). You believe that changing something on the outside will solve the problem on the inside. Having that said, most people underestimate the impact of their environment. So changing your environment in a planned and thoughtful way (having your goals in mind) is actually a very good idea

  6. Music and reading – “I’ll relax a while and then get started.”

    BPC teaches: Another more innocent way of escapism. Your dreams are simply not strong enough if watching a youtube video stops you from doing it. Urgency does help

  7. Cavalry to the Rescue – “The professor will get sick and cancel finals!”

    BPC teaches: Praying to the universe and hoping that “something will change” (without you being the actor of change) is fatalism at its worst. If you belong to this group, you’ll have it more difficult than others

 

Here are some common rationalizations (aka weakshit pu$$y excuses):

  1. “I’m more productive when I work under pressure, so I’m postponing all my work until the pressure builds up and then I’ll get it done easily.”

  2. “I don’t know how to do this problem, so I’m waiting until I know how before I do it.”

  3. “This task isn’t getting done because I really don’t want to do it. And that’s the honest truth”

  4. “Relax. The world isn’t going to come to an end if this doesn’t get done.”

  5. “This job is easier to do when I’m in the mood, and I’m simply not in the mood right

    now.”

  6. “I waited until the last moment before and it worked out okay, so why not this

    time?”

  7. “If I wait until the last minute, I won’t spend so much time on it.”

  8. “If I do this work right now, I’ll miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime social event.”

  9. “Circumstances beyond my control prevented me from doing so.”

  10. “I’ve worked on this for so long that I have no interest or energy for it.”
