Today’s task was easy, because I am the queen of procrastination. I have assignments that I should be working on; I have runs that I should be going on; I have this and that, left and right. What can I say, I love a good adrenaline rush when things begin to crumble!
Today’s task was also simple, though. It didn’t involve me going to the dry cleaners and cleaning my room and writing an essay and running a marathon: all I did was my laundry. I did one load, because that’s exactly what I needed done. My mind feels a lot calmer now that that’s done, and now that my drawers are fully of clean clothes again. I’m telling you, it’s all in the little things.
Procrastination might feel good and alright in the moment, but it really bites you in the ass later. It’s personal karma; what you put out there (or postpone putting out there) is what you get back. Some people work great under pressure, sure, but there’s some stuff we just shouldn’t be procrastinating (like my laundry, or cleaning dishes, or calling my parents). Some stuff we should face head on, so that we can procrastinate doing the other things (like writing a dissertation, eep).
