In Psychology, procrastination means, "replacing high-priority actions with tasks of lower priority, or doing something from which one derives enjoyment, and thus putting off important tasks to a later time"[source]. While this is a well known bad behaviour, what I am about to share is not really as defined as the term procrastination.
You know those times when you fail to do something because you think there isn't enough time yet for that thing? You feel, very soon, I'd have all the time in the world to do it. Or you feel, this window of time I've got is too little to do this thing I've got to do, I'll wait till I get home; when I am about to sleep; when I retire; when I get married; when I find someone to marry; when I find a publisher; when I get a job; when I get into the university; when I have lots of money! Have you come to notice that if you are not careful, such things never gets done?
Recently, there's something I'd been putting off till when there's be enough time to do it. One night, I got home and I was so tired from work that I felt like doing was knocking off my socks and off to bed. Somehow, I managed to turn on my computer and guess what? The same thing I'd been putting off till when I feel I'd have enough time (say about 3hours), I completed it in less than an hour! Finally, I went to bed relieved and fulfilled. I thought I'd share that with you to begin summoning courage for anything you've put off till later and just bravely get them started! Until you start, you will never be a star.
Thanks for reading and I've missed you all. Getting back to the groove slowly. Please keep praying for me.
