Lesson 17 – Dec. 15: Don’t Procrastinate
December 17, 2022
Probably one of the most ironic lessons I will be covering, as this section will be posted a few days late. But that is neither here nor there.
If I was Rocky, procrastination would be my Apollo Creed. Well, if Creed had convinced Rocky that he never could have won their fight, to begin with.
The bottom line is procrastination has been my downfall again and again. No matter how many times I acknowledge it and try to fix it, procrastination is almost as natural as breathing at this point. I procrastinate getting out of bed in the morning. I procrastinate driving to school. I procrastinate doing my schoolwork. I procrastinate doing my homework. I procrastinate going to sleep. I procrastinate. Period.
What I can tell you, from a seasoned procrastinator, is this: at the moment procrastinating may feel like the best option, but it never is. We deserve lives with minimal stress. Do yourself a favor and get it done now.
It isn’t always as easy as just reminding yourself that ‘you will be less stressed if it gets done now.’ I know how it is. I know that no matter how rational you may be, sometimes procrastination will win. That’s okay. It is important to be aware of this temptation in our lives, and do our best to overcome it. That’s all we can really do.
