What's The Deal With Procrastination?

I just have to ask----"what is the deal with procrastination?" There are very few characteristics I find as annoying as this one! Truly! Does this frustrate anyone else? It frustrates me for several reasons:

  • Procrastination takes away one's choices. If we have three choices and we can't make up our minds so we put it off and put if off and put if off until one by one the other two choices are no longer available, leaving us with only one---and therefore no choice really. (Does that make sense?)
  • Procrastination causes stress. When we put off a task until the very last minute, we have to rush around to complete it and stress is not good for us. It causes us to age and gain weight (watch Dr Phil if you don't believe me.) :)
  • Procrastination results in us giving us less than our very best. Very few of us produce our best product when we hurry to get it done.
  • Procrastination causes us to lie. We promise not to wait until the last minute again, we promise to not put things off and then we put off following through with our promise.

These are just a few reasons I hate procrastination! You got any more? Anybody have any scripture about this? Or am I the only one who doesn't like it?



PS. I was going to post this earlier but . . . . . . (grin)

Hey, I like how you ended that post.... *GRIN*

I was for sure that proverbs would have something about procrastination... being that there's all kinds of witty wisdoms in there.

So here goes:

Proverbs 3:27-28 (New International Version)

27 Do not withhold good from those who deserve it,
when it is in your power to act.

28 Do not say to your neighbor,
"Come back later; I'll give it tomorrow"—
when you now have it with you.

I hate procrastination too! My wife is the best at it! and she fits your list to a t. (She's reading over my shoulder, telling me what to write) it is a habit she is trying to break because she realizes it makes me crazy and it is not a healthy habit. Thanks for the post and the comments over at Flyingdude.

I try to only do what I need to do these days.. too much stress trying to do everything. I find that I pray more these days and don't worry so much about getting things done.

Its one thing to fill your plate so full you can't get to it all and quite another to sit and look at the plate with food on it until you die of starvation!
