Procrastination

Hello, fellas! How your winter break is going? I'm not feeling well. Damn you cold! So I'm here writing this post while I'm drinking a nice cup of tea. Louisa Clark says:"there really isn't much that can't be solved by a decent cup of tea." Have you read that book? The second one is horrible. I should be writing about procrastination but, I'm just putting it off.  The other day I read an article about this problem. A group of scientists discovered that there is a gene for procrastination. It seems like there is a gene for all our bad habits. There is a gene for smoking, gambling and even for hoarding. If you ask me, I think we are just lazy. Every time I have to do something important I tried to organise everything in advance. But I procrastinate a lot. For example, the other day I said I was going to study for my finals. Five seconds later I was watching my 900 favourite cat videos on Youtube.  Don't you love cat videos? I love cats. After that I said I was going to study but, I just listened to some Korean music. So I decided to break this bad habit. 
My secret
I'm breaking the code. I'll tell you that. Probably I'm not going to be allowed back in Vegas. I'm thinking about magicians. Well, I honestly want to pass my exams so, I decided to stop procrastinating. I did some research, and I found something called Kaizen. 
Kaizen is a Japanese word that means continuous improvement. According to this approach, you can learn better in a small amount of time. You are wondering: what kind of tea are you drinking, Claudio? But let David Wolfe explains Kaizen for you: 
"One of the main principles of Kaizen is that big changes result from small changes over a period of time. This can prevent the burnout that comes from trying to tackle one big task at once. Under the principle of Kaizen, you’d want to break a larger task into smaller chunks of time." -David Wolfe
Wikipedia: 
"Kaizen is a daily process, the purpose of which goes beyond simple productivity improvement. It is also a process that, when done correctly, humanizes the workplace, eliminates overly hard work (“muri”), and teaches people how to perform experiments on their work using the scientific method and how to learn to spot and eliminate waste in business processes."

I'm lazy so here you have a video that explains everything:



Now you don't have any excuse to do the things you must do. But at the end of the day it's like Ellen Degeneres says:
