P is for Procrastination
I am the world's biggest procrastinator. I am the biggest one.
Even with this blog I procrastinated. All day. It wasn't until about five minutes ago that I decided on a subject that began with the letter "P".
Procrastination. It truly is the thief of time. When you procrastinate, you truly lose so much effort in the thought of accomplishing a task. I remember in college I would wait until the last minute to do homework or write a term-paper. When I worked for a major daily newspaper, I looked at the deadline as a challenge. How much could I procrastinate and still manage to get a decent story done and on time?
There is a thrill about procrastination. Or at least I thought so until someone told me that procrastination is a form or arrogance and pride. It is saying tha people or circumstances should wait on me, because I am so important. Basically when you procrastinate, you are telling others that people need to dance to your tune and not the other way around.
I try not to procrastinate as much, but it's a learned behavior. I have to train myself not to do it. I am working on it because I am a work in progress. I want to work on this today, but if I don't, I promise to start it tomorrow.
