Time is an illusion.
I believe that time does play a very important role in our life. It helps everyone and everything move on.
Procrastination on the other hand, is like a credit card, there is a lot of fun until you get the bill at the end of month. It is more like a grave in which a great opportunity might get buried without us getting realized. It wasn’t until recently I myself learnt the importance of time. The problem was that I always thought I had plenty of time and procrastinated, until the deadline came around and I started panicking, and ended up getting in trouble.
So now I’ll tell you what I have understood about it so far – do things before deadlines, don’t wait for the last moment as the right time starts as and when you start doing the work. It is not enough to just plan things, you have to put them into action as well. Time is a luxury, once you lose it, you won’t get it back.
What’s gone is gone and what’s done is done. So buckle up and start moving forward. We all have heard people saying these things and I wasn’t any different. I have lost quite a few good opportunities myself because of my habit of procrastination. I am good at planning but working on the plan and putting it into action has always proven to be a difficult task.
Realizing what I had actually lost was really a turning point for me. Although I have not yet found the most precise and accurate solution for this, there are certain things that I try to do, like force myself to work, or keep constant reminders that I have to work, I try to think of the possible negative consequences of my procrastination, and the fear immediately makes me get to work. I also set small and achievable goals, for an hour or less, so that the smallness of the task makes it easier to do.
Identifying things that can be particularly categorized as “time wasters,” and learning to say NO was also a breakthrough since I am a pushover, and lastly, committing to my success and achievement of goals “on time”, because ultimately, it is all about priorities. We only get one right moment for everything which is right now, but we don’t realize that until it is ripped away from us. We often can’t comprehend why it is so important because the results are never immediate, but visualizing the end is what can keep us on track.
