Do you have a problem with procrastination? Same. Fortunately, you’re not alone. Procrastination is more or less accepted as a way of life at this point, even though it’s a genuinely awful habit that’s probably ruining your life.
I do not know why my brain has chosen to retain this particular bit of information, but here is something that I always think of when I think of procrastination: when I was in high school, one of my many nemeses made a Facebook status that said something like “Procrastination is like masturbation–it feels good when you’re doing it, but in the end, you’re only effing yourself.” (Except he did not say “effing,” if you get my drift!) I did not like this status–he was my nemesis, after all–but I have to admit that, factually, the sentiment is pretty sound. Doing anything other than what you are supposed to be doing, whether it’s watching back-to-back pirated episodes of that show about rich Norwegian teens or reading the Wikipedia page for the Donner Party, does feel good. But when you finish whatever procrastination effort you’ve decided to pursue, the feeling that happens afterwards is significantly worse. Hours have passed. It may or may not be 2 AM. You still have to do your work, and yet, none of it is done.
Anyway. If you’re a true blue procrastinator, what’s one more delay in your day, really? Check out these things that definitely explain you if you’re always procrastinating–then you can do your work. Probably:
