I believe that the cure to procrastination begins with a simple perception shift — hear me out.
What if you start viewing the content you consume on a daily basis as if you were actually putting money on it as an investment — would the content you consume change?
For the purpose of this analogy, let's say you are paying $1 for every post you engage with for over 10 seconds; by the end of the day after you've mindlessly scrolled through hundreds of flashy videos on Tiktok or celebrity Instagram posts, you're left with quite a substantial dollar amount investment.
Now ask yourself this - would the ROI on that money you've put on social media today be something you will benefit from, or did you just throw money down the drain?
Make no mistake, your attention is a form of currency. Invest it wisely.
To me, consciously choosing to curate the content you consume is analogous to making an informed decision on what to invest your money on — in the long term it will be obvious whether your investment paid off or not.
When it comes to financial investments, I'm sure we have all heard of the term and common recommendation to "diversify your portfolio" — which basically means there is value on variety when it comes to allocating your financial resources.
The same applies to your "mind portfolio" — diversify the topics and perspectives of the content you choose to consume but focus on its quality nonetheless. Venture out into the topics you never thought you'd be interested in, you might find that this new knowledge can add value to your current occupation.
