If you always want to stay productive, rely on a system

A recent study I did showed that 88% of all people admit they procrastinate at least one hour a day. I used to belong to that group as well. But I renounced my membership because of one simple thing: I now have a system for getting things done. My system keeps me productive.

I realized that no one was to blame for my situation in life. For all my life, I had all these ambitions and I had nothing to show for. I tried blaming everything and everyone for my lack of achievement: The economy, city I lived in, my surroundings, friends, education, and so forth. You name it—I blamed it.

But here’s what I realized: I didn't have the life I desired because I wasn't taking enough action. Instead of actively improving my life and career, I binge-watched every single TV show that was in the top 10 on IMDB. I went out every weekend. And at work, I was distracted half the time.

Procrastination is the enemy of your future-self. Today, you think, “I’m not going to learn, work, or hit the gym. That’s tomorrow-me’s problem.” That goes on for years. One day, you look back and think, “Why did I waste all these years? I'm out of shape and out of work.”

It’s because you procrastinated one day. And then, you procrastinated another day. And another one. You get the deal.

The reverse is also true. When you take action today, tomorrow-you will thank you for it. I’ve experienced both sides of this.

When I procrastinated for years, I looked back and was angry with myself. But now, I look back, and I’m satisfied with the work I’ve put in. Over the past four years, I published 7 books, 6 online courses, and 350 articles.

Thanks to my system, I’m better at what I do, have more inner satisfaction, am stronger, and make more money. 

You can become better at dealing with uncertainty

The coronavirus pandemic of this year showed us just how uncertain life can be. To be honest, life has always been like that. But in recent years, the world has changed faster. And that pace will only increase in the future. I've been talking with friends about how the economy and life is changing because of the digital age for years

A lot of jobs are disappearing—2020 made that very clear. But contrary to what most people think, this is a good thing. The jobs that are disappearing are not sought-after at all.

In a few years, we'll have much more freedom because of these changes. More of us will work for ourselves and manage our own time.

My friend said something I also believed in the past: “You need to keep up with the times.” It’s an aphorism that we often use to show we are current. But to me, that’s like drinking water when you’re thirsty. We all know that thirst is a sign that your body needs water. Ideally, you want to hydrate yourself enough so you’re never thirsty.

That's the same with modern-day life. We need to be ahead of things. Naturally, we’re not fortune tellers. But it doesn’t require a genius to see that life is getting increasingly digital. And that in time, robots will take over all the manual labor.

What’s left for us? We need to do the complex and creative work. But that requires skills. And if we constantly procrastinate, we will never learn those skills in time. We’re always playing catch-up.

Use a system that makes you more productive

Having a system for beating procrastination and getting more done is the key to becoming immune to uncertainty. It’s not meditation, mindfulness, minimalism, or doing nothing. We need more action in the world right now. We already have enough people who do nothing. That’s what sparked my journey. I realized I needed to take control of my life by taking action.

And today, I thank my 2015-self for that decision. Since then, I’ve never looked back. My life is now 10X better than it was. I’ve created a body of work and developed skills that I can use for the rest of my life. Here's a screenshot of the traffic of my site. That gradually increased as I kept publishing new articles:

This is only a fifth of the total people I reached with my articles, which were published on many other platforms as well. People asked me about how my system kept me focused and productive all these years.

Introducing the Procrastinate Zero 2 system

When you learn how to beat procrastination and double your productivity, you will get anything done, no matter what happens. 

You will learn faster and get focused on what matters. You'll get better at adjusting to changes. At this year's annual meeting of Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffet made that very clear. He said: 

"When change happens in the world, you adjust to it.”

Procrastinate Zero 2 gives you a failsafe system that shows you how to do the following:

  1. Increase your energy: Gone are the days of, "I don't feel like doing work or going to the gym." Boost your energy so you wake up excited every day.
  2. Consistently beat procrastination: Renounce your membership of the procrastination club. When you stop putting off everything, you start doing what you say. And that drastically improves your life and career.
  3. Double your productivity: Get things done effectively and move on with your life. The purpose of life is not to work all day long. There's more to life. When you double your productivity, you will have more time for other important things.

I invite you to join me and thousands of other ambitious people in Procrastinate Zero 2. But I’m not here to convince you to invest in yourself (that stuff doesn't work anyway). Some people are committed to improving themselves and others are not. Procrastinate Zero 2 is designed for people who're already committed to improving themselves. 

Free bonuses that come with this course

Since 2016, over 3,000 people have joined my online courses. My students told me they find the courses highly practical and actionable. But they missed the accountability that a personal coach offers. I agree. But a good personal coach that provides this type of support costs at least $500 a month, which amounts to $6,000 a year.

Online courses are an affordable alternative; but most programs don't offer enough support. That's why I've included the following free bonuses for Procrastinate Zero 2 students: 

  • The Sounding Board community ($99 value)—A private community where you can connect with other students and find accountability partners. I'm also inside the community to support you. Learn more about The Sounding Board here.
  • Work First ($97 value)—More people have turned their homes into their offices. In the Work First course, you'll get practical tips for getting more things done from home.
  • Real Influence ($197 value)—In this course, I show my students how to become ethical persuaders so they can actually achieve what they want. 
  • Inner Circle Newsletter ($1497)—To help with long-term accountability, I'm opening my Inner Circle newsletter for all my students. Until now, this newsletter was only for my private coaching clients. The Inner Circle newsletter goes out every first Sunday of the month. It's where I share my latest and most important insights.

Everything comes with unlimited free updates and lifetime access. No hidden charges or sneaky up-sells. 

If you own a business, you can deduct the cost of this online training. And if you’re employed, it’s very likely you can get Procrastinate Zero 2 for free.

Most companies reimburse online courses. If they don't, you can ask them to change their policy (several of my students have done that in the past). Here's an article from Investopedia with tips.

Registration For The 2020 Class

Procrastinate Zero 2 is for people who are already committed to self-improvement. In my experience, people who are committed never fail to achieve their goals. Why? If we fail, it has nothing to do with us. It means our strategy was wrong.

To succeed, you simply need to keep adjusting until you achieve your goals. But sometimes, we need a little push to get started.

If you recognize yourself in everything I talked about, feel free to join us. Simply pick your enrollment option below, click Start Now, fill in the form on the checkout page, and get instant access. Once you sign up, you get your own account that you can use to log in from any device, download the material, track your progress, and comment on the lessons.

Registration is open until Sunday, October 25 at 11:55 PM Pacific Time.

All the best on your journey, my friend.

What You Can Expect Inside The Course

 

Introduction & Self-Assessment

In the introduction module for Procrastinate Zero 2, we cover what's new in the 2020 class. I will also show you around the course and the community so you can get up to speed with everything.

After that, you can take a quick and easy self-assessment questionnaire to measure your current productivity score. Our goal is to improve that score by the end of the course. Here's what else we cover in the introduction module:

  1. Welcome! You Decide How To Learn! — Tips for getting the most out of this course. Personalized to every student's preferred mode of learning.
  2. Giving Meaning To What You Learn — A strategy you can use to improve the ROI of learning.
  3. The Power Of Questions: Take The PZ Self-Assessment  — How productive are you currently? Figure it out with the PZ Self-Assessment. 
  4. Introducing The PZ Framework — How does the Procrastinate Zero 2 system even work? A quick overview.

Module 1: Improving The Brain

Without a focused and energized brain, we can never maintain anything. This is why most of us give up on our goals. In this module, you'll learn how to adopt the mindset of a person who succeeds.

  1. Getting Over Learned Helplessness—This is the scientific term for procrastination. When you learn how to get over Learned Helplessness, you'll become unstoppable.
  2. Destroying Limiting Beliefs—Learn how to stop thinking things like, "But I can't do that." Adopt a different mindset that will actually help you.
  3. Creating Your Purpose & Goals—Most of us don't know where to start with setting goals. You'll learn how to get clear on your purpose. Even if you have no clue about these things right now.
  4. A Framework For Building Self-Confidence —We need self-confidence to perform well in life. This lesson gives you a practical framework for building more self-confidence.
  5. How To Improve Your Focus—Can't focus on one thing for more than five minutes? Watch this.

Module 2: Improving The Body

If we don't take care of our bodie, we can't expect to perform at our full potential. You don't have to be an athlete or anything. The goal is to take care of your body so you have no injuries and have more energy. 

  1. Why Health Matters To Personal Effectiveness—You'll learn everything about how the brain and the body work together to get things done.
  2. Simple Guidelines For A Healthy Life—Learn simple scientific guidelines that will make it easy to live a healthy life. It's very simple.
  3. The Psychology Of Sleep—Sleep is one of the most important aspects of a healthy lifestyle. Learn how to optimize your sleep.
  4. How To Create A Personalized Workout Routine—Who said you need to work out so hard that you can't walk the next day? This lesson gives you tips for creating a workout routine that you can actually stick with.
  5. Connecting The Dots—We'll put together all the lessons on The Brain module into one simple strategy for a healthy body.

Module 3: Beating Procrastination

Why do we procrastinate? And how can we stop? In this module, you'll learn the most effective strategies for beating procrastination. 

  1. Keep An Activity Log To Become More Effective—This is a simple tool that helps you to become aware of how much you procrastinate.
  2. The Only Way To Deal With Distractions—This strategy alone will make you more effective and focused than the majority of workers. 
  3. Why A Morning Ritual Will Change Your Life—When you start your day productively, the rest of your day will be a bonus. 
  4. The Power Of Self-Imposed Deadlines—How you can use deadlines to improve accountability towards yourself.
  5. Connecting The Dots—We'll put all the tools and strategies of this module together so you can beat procrastination every single day.

Module 4: Improving Productivity

Improving productivity seems like an impossible feat these days. Most methods are so complicated that they're counterproductive. In this module, you'll learn the only productivity strategies you need to get TWICE as much work done in the same amount of time.

  1. How To Unload Your Brain—Our brains are overloaded and at full capacity all the time. This paralyzes us. Learn how you can free up mental energy.
  2. Setting Your Priorities For The Day—When you lack direction, you're at the whim of the day. This strategy will help you avoid that.
  3. Managing All Your Tasks and To-Dos—How can you manage all your tasks without using a long to-do list? Some say it's impossible. This lesson shows it's not.
  4. Improve Focus By Working In Intervals—This timeless strategy is often underutilized or not understood. In this lesson, you'll learn how working in intervals will help you to get more done.
  5. Time Blocking: Why Your Calendar Is Everything—A simple method for consistently getting work done.
  6. How I Use This Tool To Stay Focused—I run my whole productivity system on this one tool.

About Your Instructor

There are a lot of "experts" on the internet who teach all kinds of things. I'm always skeptical about what I read and hear. Also, Who you learn from matters equally as what you learn. I recommend learning from teachers who've done something themselves. 

My background is in business. I received my Master's Degree in Business Administration from one of the top universities in The Netherlands (RuG) in 2011. While I was writing my thesis, I started a company called Vartex with my dad. We started importing professional laundry equipment but are now building our own operating systems and software for that industry. 

I also worked for Gartner, the world's leading IT research firm, in London. I didn't plan to work there but was recruited in 2014 so I gave it a try. I learned it wasn't for me. So in 2015, I started my blog. Until now, more than 30 million people have read my articles. It's a career that I highly appreciate. I've used the Procrastinate Zero 2 system to write 7 books. I give two of them away for free. And the other five are available on Amazon. This is the revenue they generate:

It's a nice income stream. But that's not all that I use PZ 2 for. I also publish weekly articles on my own site and on Medium. All of this activity results in other monetary rewards as well. I don't like to focus on money too much because it's not the most important metric. What matters is that we provide value in our careers. It's an honor to serve readers with articles they find valuable.

To me, that's the most important thing. I would continue that without the money. If you doubt that, take a look at my site. I published two articles a week for two years without earning much from it. In addition to earning with my articles and books, I offer 5 other online courses. Here's a screenshot from the results of a recent course launch:

Remember, when people online promise you to earn X amount of money, they are always lying. You simply cannot guarantee outcomes. I stand by that. My philosophy for career and life success is to focus on what you control. That's why I'm teaching this course. When you beat procrastination and improve your productivity, you automatically have an edge. Most people have a low output.

If you increase your output, you will simply move faster than the rest. This is the main strategy successful people apply. The late Kobe Bryant famously used it to become one of the best basketball players of all time. He worked out twice as much as his peers. As a result, he improved twice as fast. Ultimately, improving our productivity is the only thing we control that actually makes an impact. The investor Ray Dalio said it best:

"Do all that you can to raise your productivity, because in the long run, that’s what matters most.”

Productivity yields results.

Watch. Listen. Do.

Procrastinate Zero 2 has video lessons, audio lessons, transcripts, and a course handbook with written lessons. You decide how to learn.

"I am usually pretty skeptical about online courses but PZ is one course that anyone seeking personal growth should take. The reason I am saying this is because we are all so busy that we hardly have time to look for right resources and things that genuinely help us reach our highest potential or turn us into an effective professional, PZ does that for you. Darius has an absolutely practical approach towards getting things done and even though I still have 24 hours in my day, I constantly see myself achieving more and more every day with PZ."

Dr. Supriya Tiwari
MD Pathology, Founder of Fight PCOS Initiative

"Darius’s course helped me to re-align with my purpose and goals in life in both personal and business side. Not only he provides an easy to understand action plan but also the brain psychology behind it so you can get from procrastinating hero to procrastinate zero instantly."
