Cut the bullshit and realize one thing: we ALL have procrastinated, are procrastinating, or will procrastinate in the future. It does not matter whether someone is in grade school, high school, college, in the workforce, or whatever; procrastination does not discriminate.
Procrastination, defined, is to “postpone doing something, especially as a regular practice.” To put it in even simpler terms: procrastination means not doing shit on time. I guess you could make that connection, but some questions inevitably are raised from this statement. What is time? When it comes to procrastination, time is the regular period in which something can be done with ease and without stress. Yes, procrastination entails STRESS. Oh, no! When someone procrastinates, they are indirectly allowing stressful situations to settle. So why do it?
Many people have asked, “oh my gawd, how in the heck am I going to overcome my procrastination?! I have so much to do! What ever will I do?” Um, hello!? Are you that stupid to realize the only way to overcome procrastination is to sit your ass down and work?! It is THAT simple. Sure, some people might be like, “well something cool came up and I got distracted and it just went downhill from there.” Of course, there is something better, cooler, and more interesting than writing a 10-page paper on the life and times of Benjamin Franklin! People just need to realize that time is precious and they need to respect whatever they are doing by dedicating time to it.
I am not at all saying that people who procrastinate are stupid and should die. Heck, I procrastinate just as much as the next guy. It is just that we need to stop! Believe me, when you cut the bullshit and do your work on time, or even ahead of time, you feel so incredibly accomplished.
Procrastination has become somewhat of a ubiquitous vice in everyone’s life. Without it, we could do SO much; with it, we can do only so much. Think about that next time you are deciding whether to do your work (which has a time limit) or watch the season finale of The Bachelor (which will be aired three thousand times, to the dismay of many men, before the next installment comes out).
