STOP procrastinating and Start Studying right this moment using the Fibonacci Formula!

I’m sure you have experienced moments of laziness and not wanting to work. You find yourself procrastinating. You are waiting for inspiration to start studying.

I used to be like this too.

Then I created my Fibonacci Formula to solve this problem.

### What is The Fibonacci Formula

One day while procrastinating and surfing aimlessly, I stumbled upon the story of Fibonacci and how he came up with the Fibonacci numbers.

The son of a Pisan merchant, Fibonacci traveled widely and traded extensively. Math was crucial to those in the trading industry, and his passion for numbers was cultivated in his youth.

Fibonacci first noted the fibonacci sequence when pondering a mathematical problem about rabbit breeding.

Beginning with a male and female rabbit, how many pairs of rabbits could be born in a year?

He stipulated a series of conditions like:

- Rabbits reach sexual maturity after one month.
- The gestation period is one month.
- After reaching sexual maturity, female rabbits give birth every month.
- A female rabbit gives birth to one male and one female rabbit.
- Rabbits do not die.

So how many pair of rabbits are there after one year? Shoot me an email for the answer! 🙂

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, 4181, 6765, 10946, 17711, 28657, 46368, 75025, 121393, 196418, 317811,…

This story gave me an idea.

If the numbers give you the number of pairs of rabbits each month, the shapes of galaxies and hurricanes, then it can be used as a measure of time too.

### How to STOP procrastinating With The Fibonacci Formula

You are here before you start studying.

**Here is what I do to stop procrastinating and start studying right now:**

I’ll put the timer on my phone at 1 minute.

I’ll study until the timer sounds off.

Then I’ll cross off the next number on my fibonacci list.

I’ll put the timer at 1 minute and I’ll study until it sounds off again.

I’ll usually study until 55 and then take a break.

This gave me 143 minutes of solid study time or 2 hours and 23 minutes.

### How To Master The Fibonacci Formula

I can break up the fibonacci sequence into 2 parts if I’m feeling really lazy.

1+1+2+3+5+8+13.

This gives me 33 minutes of study time. I’ll take a 5 minute break. I’ll come back and start again.

You can play around with the sequence.

You can start with 5 and move to 8.

You can do the reverse fibonacci too. You start with 55 or 89 at high energy. Then move backward if you get tired.

This technique always work to get me started and going.

Try it and let me know if it helps you from procrastinating too much! 🙂

Hi there,

So just to clarify, would an example of this technique in use look like this:

Study 1 minute, a few seconds break, study 2 minutes, a few seconds break, study 3 minutes, a few seconds break, study 5 minutes, a few seconds breaks, and so on and so forth….

Or would the break periods between intervals be proportional to study time spent? For example 5 min study, then 5 min break, 8 min study, then 8 min break, and so and so forth.

I guess both methods could work, but I guess what I am trying to ask is what do you do between intervals?

Hey Matt! 🙂

Thanks a lot for the comment.

No I don’t take any breaks between the numbers. I’ll usually study until number 55 on the Fibonacci Formula and then take a break like I said in the article.

I’ll study 1 min. When the 1 min is over, I’ll put the next number on the timer (1 min). Then I’ll put 2 min, 3 min, 5 min, 8 minutes,…

The numbers are just there to get me started.

I only take a break when I’m tired. If not I continue.

Matt says

Thanks! Definitely going to try this out. It seems like a good way of tricking your mind into starting and getting on with study.

Yan says

You are welcome.

Yeah that’s the goal with this technique! 🙂 To get started.

Hope you stick around and spread the word please.

I’ll be writing other articles in the coming weeks.

Cheers,

Yan 🙂
