According to Mr. Google--Procrastination is an act of putting-off doing something habitually. In Psychology it refers to the act of replacing high priority action with task of lower priority.
Have you been guilty of procrastination? I bet we are at some point. It totally sucks right?
I, for one, has fallen culprit of this not so good practice. There are just moments that we just find ourselves doing something that is way out of our priority. That we give more time to other less important things than to those which should be done.
Why is it so? Sometimes, we can't even argue with ourselves or find ourselves at war with our priority. At war in a sense because we are too tempted to do a particular thing that is far more interesting. As a result, we tend to avoid a task that really requires our attention or that really must be done.
Procrastination is like a thief of our time that we openly allow. Overcoming it involves examining some of our core beliefs.
Perhaps the best reason to avoid procrastination is "If we do it today and enjoy it, we can do it again tomorrow."
It's easier said than done. But if we really try to manage ourselves and our time, we can really overcome this vicious cycle of procrastinating. If we really set ourselves into achieving something in a timely manner, we will work our ass off to finish it on time. And if we do value our time, we can brush-off the idea of procrastination.
In the end, it all boils down into how important time is for us. If we really follow the saying that "Time is gold" then there will be no procrastination that will visit us or will peek into our world.
Let us put our life into the proper perspective by putting high emphasis in using our time. We plan things and execute actions by ourselves - it is a solid fact that we can manage our time. Therefore, we can also manage to eradicate procrastination in our system.
How about you? Have you been a victim of procrastination? How did you manage to overcome it?
