At a Nutrition seminar, with Dutch leading nutritional coach (Jasper Alblas), I was listening to different benefits of eating healthier. The benefit that I remember the best was that better food equals more energy, better concentration and overall better performance. Respectively, if a person eats a lot of junk food, he will not be as energetic, concentrated and productive.
This made me think about all the other parts of my life where I try to improve my performance, so I can achieve better results. For example, I study, read, and exercise regularly and do many other activities, in spirit of one day being ready to do this one or two key things that will define my life and contribution to this world.
Still, what am I trying to achieve here? (On this planet this is.) A famous saying states that “most people simply exist”, which to me means that they go through life without a purpose. To these people “any road will take them there”.
No matter how ready and energetic they are, it does not really matter to try to get more energetic, because they ultimately don’t know what to do with this energy, or maybe it will be spent on just existing.
This is where I believe most procrastination comes from – lack of knowledge about personal purpose. How otherwise could you explain people who are drinking coffee so just they can watch more TV?
