Music in more ways than one, can help educatetiìe mind into finishing what was started
Procrastination always pampers the mind and encourages the ‘well see tomorrow’ mentality. This pushes one towards negative thought processes and actions because we may have goals, ways to make these goals true and also a belief in oneself as well, but the problem is, because of our procrastination, we only end up planning and nothing else.
Music, in more ways than one, can help educate the mind into finishing what was started as it works as a medicine in fighting procrastination. Music helps gain clarity rather than applying the usual negativity that goes along the lines of, ‘maybe tomorrow,’ ‘I won’t be able to,’ etc.
When the part of our brain that craves for instant gratification dominates the rational part of our brains, procrastination is given a free reign in our lives. The situation becomes dire when this need to gratify oneself becomes an addiction or a habit.
The root cause is an uncontrolled or unfocused mind. But the good news is that these problems can easily subside by embracing music and listening to the same, on a daily basis.
Approximately, ninety per cent of the youth love music. Either they listen to music a lot, or they aim to learn a particular instrument. To be precise, guitar has a huge fan following.
Adopting a small project of playing the guitar (or some other musical instrument) daily for 15 minutes can result in a stable, disciplined, productive mind, which can gradually prepare one to commit to higher agendas.
