Hi, I'm Jim French. And I'm here to talk about Andrew Kirby's procrastination program, which I've been taking for some time and making very slow progress through it, uh, because, uh, I really want to absorb it, you know, I want to get in there and not just, you know, Listened to some videos and, uh, um, treat it, uh, you know, like reading through a book, you know, cause I've read many books on, uh, procrast on improving and self-improvement, let's put it that way, like think and grow rich Psycho-Cybernetics and so on.
And, uh, Andrew Kirby has taught me, uh, what I've been doing wrong all these years in reading these books, because I, uh, I was just reading them, but I wasn't trying to absorb what they were trying to say. I wasn't writing notes down and thinking, well, how can I use this information in my life? How can I cooperate it into what I actually doing?
You see reading in a book, won't help you just reading it. You have to absorb what the message has to say. So that's one thing I wanted to talk about and another is, uh, uh, the systematic way that system is organized. Uh, it says somewhere in the Talmud, I haven't read the Talmud, but I understand it says this, that teaching without a system makes learning difficult.
And that's the great power of Andrew's program because he he's got a systematized and he has created this system that you can use on your own. It was exactly what I was looking for. Because I was, I figured, you know, I could do a lot of research on my own about how, how to overcome and crass donation become more industrious and all that stuff, but it might take me years and I might get a wrong idea or, uh, I couldn't take it all.
You know, there are some so much stuff out there and I thought it would be so much simpler if someone would just. Take in all that information and create a system. And then you could use that system. And from that system, you could build your own system because everyone has a system of their own.
Ultimately, you know, that's what Bruce Lee was talking about. When you said. Uh, when he was saying we shouldn't emphasize systems so much because they're, they're limited in what they can, uh, convey. And there's always more out there than any one system can present. You know, it's like different kinds of maps.
You know, you have geographical maps, you have street maps and so on. They all have approach. The idea of making a map of an area in a different way. So that, that's what, uh, really intrigued me about, you know, when I heard the presentation that he gave and everything I thought, wow, this may be exactly what I'm looking for.
Because once I learned this thing, I'll be able to, who knows what I'll be able to do. And, uh,
And speaking of it as a system, it sort of reminds me of, um, other problems like alcoholism, you know, procrastination Ryan's meeting other problems like alcoholism, where you have to, uh, overcome some but something, but you don't know the way. Where is the, what good is the will to overcome it? Come something if you don't know the way,
but, uh, in alcoholics anonymous, they provide a way and it's supposed to be one of the most successful, if not the most successful programs for, uh, fighting alcoholism that there's ever been. I'm not talking about the drugs you can take or stuff at the end that might help you to do that. But just as a system, a system that ties to way of doing something and it beats the heck out of like, Oh, I'm going to just stop, stop this cold.
I'm not going to do that in the same way with procrastination or you get up in the morning and you need to say, okay, man, I'm going to really be active today, you know? And then about halfway through yesterday, Oh, maybe I'll get on YouTube. And you know, you even forget what you wanted to do.
And, uh, there are so many good points in his system. Is it credible, for example, uh, he says, uh, you should have set yourself up so that you always have more to do than you can do in a particular day. So you always have something to do and you don't have time. To sit back and say, Oh, uh, let me go on YouTube and watch track, which is something that I like to do.
I like to go on YouTube and watch, uh, track and field. It's something that I've always liked to get out. So I, I may just casually get on there and not realize what I'm doing there. I'm watching them. Yeah. And I liked, I would watch other things on YouTube have been, some of them were very valuable, but.
I've noticed that, you know, while you're doing something like that, you're not devoting any time to your own thoughts. You're letting other things sort of take over. And so you stop thinking and you, you don't have time for that. At least I don't have time for that. I have got a lot of things. I want to do it with them.
So that's my video. Thanks for watching. Bye.
