Being too lazy to blog? Please don’t or otherwise…

Do you happen to blog regularly?

Do you always feel like you have to post something today and the next day and that you are bothered when you  didn’t manage to post yesterday?

Do you do content planning a week or a month before posting articles or images or hybrid posts on your blog?

I congratulate you for having that attitude towards blogging. It shows that you are really a passionate blogger and that you take blogging professionally.

But not all bloggers are like that.

Mind you and yes, I am honest about this. There came a point in my blogging period that I was too lazy to post something.

While other bloggers have to go there and find new subjects just so they can create a post for the blogs, in my case, I already have the subjects but I didn’t mind to post something.

If you are like this, then you sure take blogging as a hobby and not a career.  [Continue reading…]

Tips for those suffering from analysis-paralysis

There’s a time of  a day when we are generating too many ideas. Having many ideas may be a good thing. But as they always say, too much is bad enough.

These ideas should be sifted and analyzed but what if too much analysis and doing too many analyzing couldn’t anymore produce what we wanted to happen. We’re then experiencing analysis-paralysis, the condition that thwarts us to implement the ideas because they are too much to handle and execute.

I don’t have a quick-fix for this condition but I have some suggestions that may be helpful for those especially the managers and business owners who are over thinking and have many things in mind to start or execute a hasty project.

To those who suffer from analysis-paralysis, I’d recommend doing these:

1. Let your mind relax and forget all the jumbled ideas, worries and clutters. Amidst the hectic schedules and nearing deadlines, give yourself at least 5 minutes of your time to relax in the middle of the day or even at night or whenever you need to relax.
2. As you relax, feel peace, joy, vitality, love and kindness.
3.Meditate and be passive for another 5 minutes as you close your eyes.
4. As you meditate, focus your attention on breathing. Breathe deeply as you inhale and then slowly exhale.
5. As you open your eyes after the meditation, radiate positive emotion. Welcome the world again with bright eyes, open minds and in relaxed state.
6. Continue your day or night with revitalised energy.
7. Always remember to say words of gratitude.

The 10-minute timeframe in relaxation and meditation is just short. I usually meditate for 15 minutes up to 30 minutes but many mystics can go beyond 1 hour or even more.

I hope my suggestions would help you in a way.

But just a disclaimer, this is not a quick fix for analysis-paralysis and I don’t have scientific study to back its therapeutic effect. But there’s nothing to lose here since doing this is free. You have to spare a few minutes of your time though.

Even if your time is precious, make a point to have time for yourself. Life is more precious than time.
