Procrastination: Friend or Foe?
Updated: Sep 13, 2019
- Well, it depends.
- On what?
- Your perspective.
- What do you mean?
- When you think of procrastination, you probably tend to think of it as something negative. The media crucifies it, your friends, family, colleagues and yourself crucify it, I very much used to do the same, sometimes still am. When that happens, I tend to be thinking I have this most important thing in my to-do list, yet instead of getting on with it, I'm reading a book, talk with friends, check my emails, watch a movie...
But could I be looking at things from an unhelpful perspective? I mean, all my emphasis is on what is not happening. How about a closer look at what IS happening?
All those restful activities, all those activities that bring me closer to people... Is my body trying to tell me something? Is there something I am not paying attention to? What is it that I actually need?
Curious to know what happens for you :)
