Don't procrastinate, thump your bowl! by 


’Don’t procrastinate, thump your bowl!’ is inspired by a story told by Paul J. Meyer, the New York Times Best Selling Author, about procrastination.

He tells of how, to show an example of the destructive power of procrastination, he used to place a frog in a glass bowl with an inch of water, and place a bunsen burner under it with the flame very low.

The frog could easily escape the bowl, but the water heats slowly, so slowly that the frog doesn’t realise he is in danger of being boiled alive, just like us being lulled into a sense of security by our comfy lifestyle.

To make the frog jump out of the bowl all he had to do was thump the bowl, which jolted the frog into action, saving it’s life, showing us that all we need to do to change our lives from the mundane and easy, but essentially unfulfilling, to a better life, is to create a jolt, an action!
