I guess you all read through my last post for yesterday. If you did, this is the continuee series (part 2). I hope this changes your mindset of procrastinating when we done.
Getting things done is hard work, definitely harder than getting nothing done. Or getting easy things done.
We are creatures of comfort so we resist the notion of hard work, because it translates to discomfort and maybe even pain.
We might have to move our bodies and put in effort and concentrate and focus and even break a sweat. So we resist.
These walls of resistance manifest in the simplest and costliest form in our lives: Procrastination.
But here’s the irony. Procrastinating is
actually harder on you over time than overcoming resistance and doing the work.
Because procrastination can cause fatigue and stress and anxiety. It can leave you feeling empty and dissatisfied with yourself. It makes you feel guilty and nags you like an annoying fly in your bedroom in the middle of the night.
On the other hand, completing a task elevates you to high levels of true happiness, gives you a sense of accomplishment, and makes you more productive for the next task.
Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task. ~William James
So the question is, which feeling do you want more?
Stay tuned for the next part..
