    Discussing The Findings Of The Biggest Study On Procrastination

    Discussing The Findings Of The Biggest Study On Procrastination

    I recently conducted a survey on my newsletter. 2,219 people participated.

    With 88% of the workforce admitting that they procrastinate at least one hour a day, it’s safe to say this is a widespread issue.

    This result is also in stark contrast with previous research that showed 25% - 75% of people procrastinate. It's more common than we assume.

    On this episode, I discuss the findings, give more background about the study, and talk about why we procrastinate.

    Here's a link to the study and the slide deck:http://dariusforoux.com/procrastination-study

    How I Slow Down Time

    On this episode, I discuss my article Why I Stopped Being Busy (https://dariusforoux.com/being-busy/) and how I slow down time.

    I hope you find it useful.

    Practicing Stoicism With Jonas Salzgeber

    Practicing Stoicism With Jonas Salzgeber

    On this episode, I invited Jonas Salzgeber, author of The Little Book Of Stoicism, to join me. We talk about how we can use stoic ideas to live better. We also talk about creating things. Too often, we think “that’s already been done” when we want to write a book, create an app, or start a business. But that shouldn’t hold us back.

    Jonas’ first book became a best-seller on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2WdeD9e. He’s a good example of how hard work pays off.

    The Power of Compounding

    The Power of Compounding

    Are you working on a lot of things? Is your attention not on one thing? There’s a big chance that you will not achieve the best possible results.

    Or worse: You might fail if you try to achieve many things at the same time

    The reason is simple: Most of us believe that success happens all at once. Real life is different.

    Keller and Papasan put it well: “Success is sequential, not simultaneous.”

    Things add up. You learn one skill. Then another. You finish one project. Then another. Over time, your accomplishments add up to form an impressive feat.

    This is especially true for money. Most people earned their money over time. Few people make a big financial splash.

    Warren Buffett is the perfect example of sequential success. You can achieve big things with small actions, that build up over time. In this video, I explain how Buffet’s net worth grew exponentially over the years due to a simple concept: The Power of Compounding.
    Thanks for listening!
