How Often You Postpone the Task for Tomorrow Which You Can Do Today?

Aug 17, 2007
How many times we feel that we are too lazy to do particular things because we think that we do not have time for that. But postponing them is never been a good idea. The same issue will keep coming up and one day it will come up as a disease to us. This article will give us more understanding on how important it is not to delay the things which we can do today.

The interesting thing about procrastination is that we tend to put of only those tasks that seem unappealing to us. If the task is boring, or monotonous, or involves too much hard work, then it stands a very good chance of getting postponed. It is not because of the lack of time that we do not do the task. On the contrary, we might have plenty of time to do it but we tend to postpone it and justify ourselves saying that we do not have the time for it.

Take for example a visit to the dentist. How many of us go for monthly checkups to the dentist. The answer would be almost none. Over here the reason is pretty simple. Since childhood, dentists have been associated with physical discomfort. It is not just the physical pain that we associate with a dentist clinic.

There is also a lot of stress involved. It certainly is an uncomfortable experience to spread oneself in a completely vulnerable position on the dentist chair with ones mouth open too as if one is resigned to ones fate. The dentist, at such moments seems to have a sneer on his face as he approaches you in his spotless, white attire and contemplates on which of his shiny pointed instruments displayed before you he should use first to prod and poke.

As a result, a visit to the dentist, as far as I am concerned, is something that sends a shiver down my spine. It is because of this that I keep avoiding visits to the dentist clinic. Even if I start having a truth problem I would rather depend on forces like voodoo and witch craft than go to my dentist.

That is something that I and I think a lot of others as well tend to procrastinate. Let see if we can think of some things that are likely to get procrastinated in our professional lives. I know that for most people, cleaning up clutter is an unpleasant task. Over time, a lot of clutter gets collected in our workstations. Our drawers get stuffed with a lot of odds and ends. There will be piles of papers on our desks or perhaps under our desks so that no body sees it.

Some people even have a difficulty in clearing their mailboxes until a warning message pops up on the screen. Visiting card holders are another such area that gets neglected. Over, we stash so many cards into our card holders, most of the cards belonging to people who may have migrated to another planet for all we know. And though we know that it is a good thing to dump half these cards every now and then we never get down to doing it until the card holder literally starts bursting in the seams.

These are some of the jobs that we put off for tomorrow, a tomorrow that never comes. Now, there are some problems that arise out of procrastination that are detrimental to time Management.

We need to know and understand that some small-small things in life can be better if we can do at the earliest.
