For me a moment, I thought to myself, Why I don’t write this piece tomorrow. Why don’t I just skip today and simply consider that tomorrow will be today. Well I mean no one will really castigate me for anything.
All this is what I thought myself as I wrote this blog and maybe tried to go haywire today and simply do nothing at all. I wanted to simply go enter my friday, i wanted to slowly leave work early and just go to my usual bar and drink my guinness in peace and not write at all. But hey, I won’t let it win today. I won’t leave for procrastination today.
To simply understand what it is, Procrastination is the avoidance of doing a task that needs to be accomplished. Sometimes, procrastination takes place until the “last minute” before a deadline. Could this be the reason for our continued slag. I get it, when we Youth attain some small small level of small success, we tend to get too comfortable. We tend to ignore the vigor with which we started to work on something, it’s a cancer that has slowly but surely slowed us down.
I have faced it majority times. I have swept my urgent to-do list right under the carpet and I have woken up when time is almost up. Most times, i have produced shitty work even with the plenty time provided to me. Somehow, I have ended up losing up people’s trust and lost out on plenty of great deals due to procrastination.
For the sensitive part of my youth, this has slowed down my progress, it has made me somewhat incompetent and has branded me a non-performer. I have fought it but on some days, i have lost the fight, admittedly.
Procrastination continues to be such a tight hurdle to leap but the more i got broke, the more i worked harder and never even thought about it. My being broke pushed me to do all my duties on time and even leave room for a chill. It’s such a freaky puzzle.
It’s really Funny!
