Meet Henrik. He lives in Sweden. – SCN Encourager
He writes about his experiments in “worthwhile living.”
That’s a plus.
Henrik Edberg is 34 years-old and he has been writing about his passionate pursuit of productivity and balanced thinking for almost 8 years.
His sincere focus on the topics of “productivity” and “balanced thinking” no doubt reveals to you why I find him so fascinating.
He’s so… not me.
My personal journey toward average could definitely benefit from a big shot of his gumption.
I like ice cream, too.
At least we have that much in common.
Henrik wrote an interesting piece called “How to Stop Procrastinating: 7 Timeless Tips.”
Even if you don’t want to stop procrastinating, you should glance at his article. (later, that is)
Henrik used an appealing format.
He began each of the seven tips with two or three quotations before connecting a fairly tight paragraph of thoughtful perspective.
It’s a format we could easily imitate.
Imagine you’re charged with explaining the cornerstones of 21st century learning or giving the rationale behind a new program or initiative.
The set style of several quotes then paragraph, several quotes then paragraph… has a nice look and rhythm to it. (so says the guy who can’t dance a lick!)
Don’t overlook the fact that Henrik chose every quotation with care.
He wanted them to be strong enough to stand on their own.
Here are his two introductory quotations.
“Tomorrow is the busiest day of the week.” – Spanish proverb
“How soon ‘not now’ becomes ‘never’.” – Martin Luther
Talk about good hooks to pull you into his paragraph about procrastination!
If you cruise over to Henrik’s Positivity Blog, you might enjoy another article found on the right sidebar called “16 Things I Wish They had Taught Me in School.”
He touches upon the 80/20 rule, the value of gratitude, and not comparing yourself to others.
Henrik also writes that he wished his school had taught everyone how to better activate their reticular activation systems.
I couldn’t agree more!
I don’t think my high school in Flint taught me enough about this, either!
