Chris’ Review Of The Procrastination Program (Andrew Kirby)


Video Transcript - Rough

Hi, my name is Chris I'm 21 years old, and this is my view for Andrew's procrastination program. So before I started the program, I was pretty bad procrastinator. I'd sort of coasted through school and through college, I never really did any work unless I had to, unless it was sort of, you know, the day or a couple of days before the deadline, I wouldn't revise for exams or, or complete coursework, unless it was.

The day before, um, I spend my days playing games for like eight hours a day or bingeing, YouTube or Netflix, which is pretty common. I'm sure loads of people do the same thing. If you're in my shoes. I got to uni, um, after a year of putting it off, because I couldn't be asked to do the application, which kind of says it all about how much I progressed the native.

Um, and you know, even there, I had a reputation for being in and the last day of the deadline, put it in an idea to get the work done. Cause I'd been out smoking weed or drinking and party. And for the three months we had to do it. So I really wasn't the best with time management or discipline and making myself do the work.

And, uh, you know, I felt pretty bad. I felt sort of distant unsatisfied. I felt like I was wasting my potential idea and not living up to who I could have been. So. I decided to get an honors program. I stumbled across him on YouTube and stumbled across the program. Got involved quite luckily. Um, and yeah, I was really impressed with it.

Actually. I think it was, I think it's really well done. It's well structured. It's a different topic every week and you just work your way through it. Um, you know, just videos online. It's like a sort of online lecture. You sit down and you watch them. You'll make your notes. We work through it throughout the week and then again, the next week, but there's no, um, time constraints you can take as long as you like to work through it, obviously, you know, real life is happening around it.

So you have ups and downs and other things going on. So it's really nice that you can just take it at your own pace. Do it whenever you have the time to do it, when it, whenever you make the time to do it, I guess, um, The actual, when you get taught, but it's actually surprisingly easy to implement, which is great because it's not, it's not a lot of hard work.

It's just that you need to, you need to know a few key things and learn how to do a few key things and you're off and away really after that, you sort of it's it's you, it does it itself almost. It's that easy, but what you really need is the information that he has to share. So, I mean, he tackles. The root causes of your issues rather than just sort of sticking a plaster on it.

And, you know, just covering up the surface, he really goes deep into it and everything you get told in there, it's backed up by research studies, by loads of background reading. You can tell he's really, Andrew's really done his work for this. He's really put in the time and it comes through in the quality of the content.

I think one of the best things about this program, other than the knowledge base you get is the methods and the routines. He gives you to deal with issues as they come up in the future. So it's not like, Oh, I beat procrastination for six weeks because I was getting told what to do. And then I went straight back to how I was living afterwards.

You know, now for the rest of your life, the rest of my life that I have equipped to deal with. These issues if they arise again, when they arise again. And I know that I'll be able to deal with them and get back on track far, far, quicker than I ever would have without them. And that confidence is so refreshing.

It's so comforting. I wouldn't have had that if I hadn't of gone on this course, um, How does it make you feel that the videos were always, they're always quite motivating. You always feel quite inspired to get the work done and sort of improve yourself after you watch them, which is quite nice. I had them, you get given an accountability partner through the process.

And mine would always say to me that whenever he was feeling like he then sort of Slack in, or he was unmotivated, or you just flick on one of the videos and watch it through. And that would always pump him up. They would always get him going and getting back on track, which is really nice. So after the program, what happened?

What the results it's the important bit. Right. Um, really good, actually really, really good. Uh, I had a lot of goals, sort of vague and defined goals before I started, I was able to define them and now I'm able to start working on them with, uh, a discipline that I was unaware that I was capable of. You know, I have tasks that aren't.

Really important for months and months. Yeah. But I'm sitting down, I'm working on them every day, doing hours of work and distracted. I'm not flicking to Reddit or YouTube every 20 minutes. So I'm actually getting solid work done, which I can't believe to be honest with you, I'm going to the gym regularly, more regularly than I ever have before.

I'm probably in the best shape of my life right now. You know, I'm practicing my guitar, I'm reading, I'm doing all these things that I would always say to myself that I should do, but never actually. Man up and start doing, um, I'm even, you know, trying new things. I started boxing the other week, which is something that would have terrified me six weeks ago, but now I'm happy to go and try and do it.

So it really is. It really does give you results. Um, I'm more organized than I ever was before. One of the things they teach you is time management, which I solely sorely needed. Um, so I've got my little calendar now with my daily tasks and I can see what I'm doing every hour of every day. And it just helps things.

It just helps you tackle things as they come up far quicker, rather than letting. 50 things build up for two months and then you just feel like it's an insurmountable task because there's so much to do. You just do things one by one as they pop up and you feel so much better for it. I mean, now as a perfect example, right?

So it's the 20th of December as of recording this it's Christmas time. And normally I'm awful at Christmas. I hate Christmas and I hate birthdays because it involves organization and planning. And I was rubbish at one of those things. So last Christmas, I didn't get my presence sorted until like the day before I came home and I did manage to get what people probably wanted.

It was, it was a shit Christmas. Cause I hadn't put the work in and I felt bad for it. I felt like I was bit of a Dick for, for, not for, for messing up like that. And um, you know this, so now this Christmas. I've smashed it. I've got my online presence done, weeks and weeks in advance. I'm coming home. I can just relax.

I can spend time with my family, have a laugh, have fun. And it's to the point now where I'm more organized than they are, you know, they're going out and doing last minute, Christmas shopping and I'm sat here chilling with a cup of tea and that's just unheard of for me. So it really is good. Uh, like I say, it changes how you feel inside as well.

So there's all these practical elements of like, you do better. You do more things, which you've always been trying to do, but internally as well, you just feel better. You feel more confident, feel more capable like you, when you commit to something. When I commit to something, now I know that, I mean, what I'm saying, I know that I can do it and I will do it.

And I don't have to have that little awkward thing of thinking, Oh, we'll actually get that done. Or am I just saying that to make this person happy? You know, now we know. I'm capable of doing it and I will do it. So it makes you a happier person. And I think my friends and family have noticed that as well, throughout the six weeks, you know, it really, really helps.

And the thing is you don't have to wait the full six weeks to see results. Once you, a lot of people have like one or two things that they're missing. And once you find those, everything just clicks. And you're off to the races. So even on like week three, I think once you sort of, once I started my like time management or whenever it was, I was, I was great.

So you don't even have to necessarily obviously do the whole six weeks, but you will see results before that. And it sort of just led up to me now. I don't feel like I'm wasting my potential. I feel like I'm on track to developing into the person that I've always wanted to be. You know, I'm on track to achieving one of these goals that I've always wanted to do, but never been able to.

And now, um, On the way to doing them. And I wouldn't have done that without this program. So if people are unsure whether to invest in it, whether to spend the money and the time on it, absolutely do it. If you think this would benefit you, you will thank yourself for the rest of your life. We're doing it now.

So a hundred percent get involved and, um, yeah. Thank you, Andrew. That's all I have left to say. Really? Yeah. Cheers.

If you procrastinate, I want to speak with you.
