According to Dictionary.com, procrastination means “to defer action; delay: to procrastinate until an opportunity is lost” or “to put off till another day or time; defer; delay.” Why do we procrastinate? I don’t know about other people, but I find that doing everything at the last minute, under the extreme pressure, makes me churn out stuff faster and better. I don’t know why….
Unfortunately, with this method, I stress out more than I need to. I lose sleep. I want to strangle the next person I see. I want to punch myself for procrastinating in the first place. But how ironic is it that sometimes the best work simply comes from procrastination?
To make my life easier, I should stop procrastinating, right? That’s easier said than done. You know how some people live off on thrill and adrenaline by doing risky thing? I think this is my “risky adventure” to feel that thrill and fear.
Really, though, I should stop typing this and get my arse to work. That’s probably the best thing if I want to complete a 2000 word paper by this Friday at midnight.
