You Don't Have to Procrastinate

It's a choice, not a necessity.

I meet many people that complain of not being able to complete their work without becoming distracted. That’s understandable. I’m the same a lot of the time. But it isn’t a case of ‘not being able’ - that’s just an excuse. They’re all perfectly able of ignoring those distractions and staying on track.

Really, procrastination is a choice, not a necessity.

You could complete the work you need to complete today. You don’t have to play video games. You don’t need to eat that slice of cake.

What you do is entirely up to you. You have free will. You can do as you please. You know what needs to be done, you know what you need to do in order to succeed, but for whatever reason you’ve decided to do something else. Something unimportant.

At the end of the day, procrastinating is a choice. Nobody else is going to suffer when you make the wrong choice - only you.

What are you going to do today? The work you know you need to complete? Are you going to put in the hours, or are you going to keep wasting valuable time? It’s up to you.
