Say No to Procrastination

You may delay, but time will not, and lost time is never found again.

Benjamin Franklin

Procrastination is one of the major stumbling blocks which prevents people from living up to their full potential. When we procrastinate, we not only miss opportunities, but we also waste time. Procrastination is the inner enemy which can cause more damage than any outsider.

Procrastination is the act of delaying any assignment or avoiding work as long as possible. It may cause severe dips in our performance and can even affect our relationships. It may bring negative and undesirable results in academics or career. Some people think laziness alone is the cause of procrastination. Laziness need not be the only cause; there may be different reasons for it. For instance, if we find any work boring, we are likely to skip it, or if we are afraid of failure, we hesitate to start at all.

Some of the most common examples of procrastination are: paying the bills or fees on the last date, submitting the income tax return at the final moment, preparing for an examination at the eleventh hour, packing the luggage for travel at the last moment. Most of us procrastinate once in a while at least, but it can be worrying if this becomes a general pattern in life.

Developing time management skills, efficient planning, and timely decision-making can help us avoid many of the regrets that are born out of being too laid-back and giving in constantly to procrastination. In most cases, the right motivation, self-discipline and making a realistic and workable schedule can enable us overcome procrastination. Let us say ‘No’ to procrastination and nourish the habit of doing things on time.
