Like many, I procrastinate. Examples include cleaning my closet, laundry or the dishes. Within the last year or so I’ve noticed a slight shift and I’m not procrastinating as much. Reason: I realized I was taking for granted that tomorrow will be just as I planned. Life doesn’t work that way. Recently I hurt my back to the point where I couldn’t do much of anything. This meant all those things such as laundry, dishes and grocery shopping had to be put off for several days. This is also true of pursuing career ambitions; we always assume there will be more time in the future to accomplish our dreams, but that’s a bad assumption.
Now I’m not a believer in bad things lurking around every corner but I am a fan doing things when they need to get done. This mentality helps me enjoy and/or cope when those unexpected gifts of life come pouring down.
Are you a procrastinator and if so are you working to change it?
