A lot of us fear procrastination. This makes us take certain measures like ‘I will only get up from this desk once I have completed the assignment’. Logically we then deny ourselves certain things like getting a glass of water or going to the loo. We fear that if we give in to any of these ideas before we know what’s happening we will be scrubbing the house done.
However because our mind can only then think about whatever it is we are trying not to do we lose: we neither get the assignment done nor do we get the coffee. Let’s not let the fear of procrastination keep us from the things we need to do. Sometimes we’re better off just to get that coffee and move on.
