Procrastination - Your Enemy

So, are you a procrastinator? Of course you are. If you were not, you would be bothering to read about time management.. It is a rare person who does not procrastinate.

What is procrastination? Procrastination is simply the habit of putting off for tomorrow what you can do today. Does it ring a bell? The fact is that almost everyone of us have this habit. We tend to postpone jobs and tasks. And procrastination is the villain, the unsuspecting sneak that upsets every plan connected with time management.

The interesting thing about procrastination is that we tend to put of only those tasks that seem unappealing to us. If the task is boring, or monotonous, or involves too much hard work, then it stands a very good chance of getting postponed. It is not because of the lack of time that we do not do the task. On the contrary, we might have plenty of time to do it but we tend to postpone it and justify ourselves saying that we do not have the time for it.

I know that for most people, cleaning up clutter is an unpleasant task. Over time, a lot of clutter gets collected in our workstations and our homes. Our drawers get stuffed with a lot of odds and ends. There will be piles of papers on our desks or perhaps under our desks so that no body sees it.

Some people even have a difficulty in clearing their mailboxes until a warning message pops up on the screen.

These are some of the jobs that we put off for tomorrow, a tomorrow that never comes. Now, there are some problems that arise out of procrastination that are detrimental to time

The 5 bad effects of Procrastination

  • A feeling that a job has been left undone is bad for our morale plus it may be keeping you up at night.
  • Unfinished jobs leave a lot of clutter around which affects our efficiency.
  • Putting things off means accumulating jobs and the absolute last day possible to get the job done usually brings other emergencies that will take all your time..
  • Procrastination when it comes to the notice of other people maybe branded as laziness and lack of interest in the job.
  • The job becomes more unpleasant the more you postpone it.  

The only thing that you need to get straight is that you have to do the job any way so why not do it right now. Do not wait for that day when-you-will-have-more-time. It will never come. The chances are that you will be busier tomorrow than you are today. Most of those jobs that we procrastinate are the-sooner-done-the-better kind. And the sigh of relief that escapes from our lungs once the job is done and over is worth it.

All it takes is some will power, make up your mind to do a task and then just do it, Trust, me you will be happy you did.
