Procrastination: Silent, but Deadly

Maybe I’ll do it now or maybe later or maybe…sound familiar? Procrastination as defined by Dictionary.com is the act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off or delaying; especially — you get the idea. Call it a habit, an act, or whatever bottom line is it’s neither the best trait to have nor the easiest to break.

Procrastination can stall the plans of a day to a screeching halt and leave you to deal with the repercussions of your actions until it is too late. Currently, I am shirking off my summer work as well as researching different colleges (becoming an adult: scary thought!); instead of doing either of these things I have engrossed myself in exploring the world of blogging as well as reigniting my love of reading.

I don’t know why I procrastinate especially when by doing so I unintentionally give my Mother license to harp on and on about getting things out of the way to have the day free — yeah…okay! I find that while my work may be rushed and half-assed it’s usually some of my best — a bizarre, one-of-a-kind skill I fully intend to exploit until my personal well of spur-of-the-moment, crunched-for-time ideas runs dry.
