I see it all the time, procrastination. I hear all the excuses,
“I am too busy!”
“I work well under pressure!”
“I’ll get it done!”
All the explanations, all of the excuses, for what? What determines a person being busy enough to procrastinate on something that they know is a priority to get done?
Procrastination is not setting priorities straight because most likely the thing that is being procrastinated on is just something an individual does not want to do or put energy into. Instead, they wait until the last minute when anxiety and stress start to flood in. Most of the time when people procrastinate on a project, it does not turn out to be the individual’s best work.
Procrastination is not healthy and can limit your potential. Why settle for less than your potential, just because you don’t want to put in the few hours to get it done? Another way to look at it is a quote from Edward Young;
Procrastination is the thief of time.
Edward Young was correct in saying this because most of the time while you are procrastinating, you are thinking about the thing you need to get done, but refuse to put the energy needed to complete it. This is wasting even more time, which is not beneficial in completing your task.
