To be procrastinating is a dangerous habit, its a personal tool to indefinite destruction. It is a time ticking bomb that when it decides to blow up, it will be when you least expect it.
This week I was faced with issues that I had procrastinated for months and few for years. My brain and heart went into a panic mode. I lost my mental, physical and emotional strength and stability. They were issues that would have taken me less than few phone calls, few hours of letter writing and some discipline for few weeks or maximum two months, but yeah, I procrastinated them all, and this week, day after day, hour after hour, they all haunted me like ghosts and as if I had committed a crime. And to make matters worse, drink poured of my phones, lost my cardigan and my bank card, thank God for the good samaritan, who left it at the bus stop where I got on looool…. Hhhmmmm another unexpected disaster.
What is the koko of this post?
If not for the wisdom i have gathered over the years, I would have had this horrible feelings that my family’s past/curse was haunting me or some evil people were the cause and knowing me years ago, I would have called God knows how many pastors, alfas, prophets and herbalists to find out why everything happened. But to God be the glory, I accepted my nonsense behaviour, learnt from them and started making necessary corrections. Knowing fully well that the consequences now would be greater because i will need to pay higher penalties.
What am saying to you is this, what is required of you today is what is required of you, leaving it till tomorrow means, you are accumulating more pain and work load for yourself tomorrow. These are easily done but when the consequences start to rain in with thunder storms, YOU WILL ONLY HAVE YOURSELF TO BLAME.
Procrastination is a deadly disease that works like high blood pressure. It stops you from doing the necessities whilst concentrating on things that won’t elevate or improve your well-being or your life.
You have things to do, you are on facebook for hours, you have assignments to write, you are watching TV. You have people to call to resolve important matters, you are jisting with your friend that wont run away. You have places in your house to clean, you are busy arguing over nonsense issues. You have issues in your relationship/marriage, you are busy telling others about it when you suppose to be talking it out with your spouse and embarking on doing things to make it work. Hhhmmmm
Get hold of your sanity, START MOVING YOUR BUTT, STOP PROCRASTINATING. STOP KILLING YOURSELF SLOWLY.
Start making hays whilst the sun is still shining…. It’s your life, you will be the one to pick up the pieces.
It’s all about self discipline, START disciplining yourself if truly you want to grow in wisdom and become successful…
Procrastination is cancerous.
