Procrastination Is Not Your Friend

Today, most people strive to be productive, getting up, getting out, and getting things done. It’s hard for them to sit around and do nothing. Then, there are others that will take every opportunity to do nothing, lie around, be lazy, and relax. Well, I’m the latter. If I can put it off until tomorrow, I will. Procrastination is one of my worse traits.

A perfect example of this happened to me in 2013, I had to cut the grass in my backyard for the first time that Spring. Between my schedule, the weather, and my procrastination, the grass had gotten to almost 5' tall and very thick. My riding mower was not functioning and needed repair, so I had no choice but to tackle this task with my push mower. What would normally take 45 minutes to an hour to cut with my push mower took almost 5 hours over two days.

Most tasks become worse if you don't tackle them immediately.  It doesn't matter how much you just don't want to or don’t feel like doing something at that time, take my advice, it's better to just get up and get it done. You will feel better about what you've accomplished plus, you will have truly earned the right to do nothing, because there's nothing to do. Just remember, procrastination is not your friend.
