We put stuff to the side because we choose not to do them. Putting things off is a way of easing our mind from stress but then we don’t realize that by doing that we end up making things worse for ourselves. Although we think we’re doing nothing wrong by procrastinating we’re actually affecting ourselves in the long run. Procrastination doesn’t happen to you on accident, procrastination happens to you because you let it happen to you .i don’t think i would realize i had this problem if it wasn’t for track and my coaches and my grades .
I woke up and realized i didn’t do the assignments again. I always said i was going to do it but i never came around to do it until the last minute, because everything got my attention. It’s like a cycle that never ends it just keeps repeating. The only way to get rid of that stress was to do the assignment, but i was too lazy. The problem was that it constantly thought about it and it even got me distracted from my other classes .
i would always tell myself “oh yeah i’ll do it tonight” but that was just a lie to myself. I thought about it 24/7 and the deadlines got closer and closer so i started stressing more and more. It got even funny when I thought that the whole thing would have taken only 2-3 hours of the time to do it instead of just thinking about it. I needed to do something as soon as possible, to find a way to cope with it. I still did nothing, Then I thought “If I do it I can just relax with my girlfriend or play some video games “.
It seemed to be the best reward for me after all. In my mind I thought about it over and over again of how I will do it until I understood that the best way to complete something was to begin it. I stopped and started thinking about it and i said to myself this will not happen anymore i will not let procrastination get to me anymore. It is a really bad habit because it brings a lot disadvantages. First, I deceive myself things will be alright because I will do that later. Thus it always gives me a false sense of comfort.
Besides, it wastes my time because I always postpone doing things. However, I will have to do that anyway so I always end up with doing it while I should be doing something else. This make me stuck and prevent me from keeping up my life, achieving my goal. It is also a sign of laziness which are no good for me. And I always feel emptiness because I always fail to do things what I am supposed to do in a day. When you procrastinate a lot of bad things can happen.
You don’t learn to discipline yourself, your work suffers, and you get stressed out. Procrastination is dangerous, you fool yourself by thinking up reasons to wait one more week or one more day. The worst thing is, is that procrastination is so easy to stop. You just have to quit being lazy, make up your mind to get it done, and just do it!
