In Others’ Words: The Time Thief
I would dare say everyone is guilty of procrastination at one time or another.
Of course, there are people who just put things off things once in a while, and then there are the big-time procrastinators who have perfected “not now” and “l’ll get to it later.”
And at the time … putting off the responsibility, the job, the task, the person, seems fine. After all, we’ll get to it later, right? In an hour. Or tomorrow. Or the next day.
But do we?
Maybe. Maybe not.
What we are doing is developing a habit of hesitation. Instead of moving ahead … instead of trying and yes, maybe running into an obstacle that we have to figure out … we hold off. We let time slide. How many minutes, hours, days are wasted by our mental loitering? It all adds up, doesn’t it?
In Your Words: What helps you avoid procrastination? When have you regretted putting something off?
