Procrastination is the act of delaying or putting things off.
A bad habit:
Now we know sometimes there are legitimate reasons that cause us to delay, even important things. But many times, we use delay as a way to avoid things, people, responsibilities. If we are not careful, procrastination becomes our way of dealing with life. It becomes our habit. When this occurs, we will usually live with lots of regret.
We allow laziness to ruin our lives. Lazy people tend to be poor people. It’s the diligent who get rich or blessed, not the lazy or those who continue to procrastinate. We have to resolve to be more diligent and purposeful with our lives. When we procrastinate, it usually is because we don’t like, enjoy, doing some type of task. We tend to do the easy things or the things we like, but put off — avoid — the unpleasant, the hard things.
When we live life this way, we will miss so many opportunities. People who constantly make excuses and put things off until tomorrow don’t realize that by doing this they may have missed an opportunity today. Procrastination will hurt us and our future. To get rid of this, we need to begin to take small steps to get things done, to push ourselves to do the hard things first, instead of the easy things and the things we enjoy doing. I believe if we would work on this, it would change our lives for the better. To identify this issue will cause our stress level to go down and our anxiety level to be less.
It’s the lazy who never prosper, but the diligent get rich.
Just a thought,
