Procrastination gives you something to look forward to. ~ Joan Konner
Some psychologists say that procrastination and perfectionism go hand in hand. If that’s true then I have perfected procrastination. I am a thrill seeker waiting to the last minute for that euphoric rush of getting a job done. As I sit here writing there are a hundred other things I should be doing. Dishes in the sink, laundry in the washer patiently waiting to be put in the dryer, floors calling to me to be cleaned, the list goes on and on. Why do I procrastinate? I am not a lazy or inefficient person. The reason is simple I don’t want to do it. I was not cut out for menial labor. What satisfaction do I really get from these monotonous jobs that I do week after week, day after day. None!
The origin of the word crastination is Latin, crastinus of to-morrow. If I PRO-crastinate wouldn't I be supporting the idea? I believe it is a lifestyle that we all choose. If our children need us we are there. We don't defer their needs until later. We have learned to prioritize, take charge, and get the job done! So what, if we want to go out and buy new underwear and socks because we have not done the laundry. So what, if we leave the house without making the beds to get our nails done with our daughters. SO WHAT? The world will not come to an end. In fact if more people procrastinated on the tedious chores of life and spent more quality time with the people we love our existence becomes more meaningful. So I say "procrastinators unite!" Revel in your ability to put off until tomorrow and enjoy the day.
Procrastination isn't the problem. It's the solution. It's the universe's way of saying stop, slow down, you move too fast. "
