Procrastination, how about you?

I know I do.. from time to time….. procrastinate.

Not everyone are familiar with the word procrastination, far more are however (or will become) familiar with the definition of procrastination once they know what the word means.

Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the “last minute” before the deadline.
So there we are. Some of us succumb to [a]periodic, selective procrastination. Or lets say that, as per definition, the question regarding what’s “urgent” or less pleasurable, is highly flexible.

Procrastination doesn’t necessarily happen in correlation with mundane tasks, or for that matter work. I for instance, can be and are known to be, extraordinary diligent and focused with regards to work and work related tasks. To such an extent that I know what happens when you prioritize work, and forget about other er… less pressing matters.

I don’t think there’s any recommended medication (at least on legal) available to counter the spirit of procrastination. Which in fact perhaps is more a question of lack of spirit than spirit itself. Whatever or however it may be, The below video is highly, highly recommended, as it will educate you in a  very to the point, humorous way around and about the topic of Procrastination.

Solutions to procrastination?

So, now as you’ve seen the above funny, entertaining and to the point description (at least I think it is), lets ask the question. How can one defeat the lust, the desire or perhaps inclination towards Procrastination? Well, there are techniques, but not all works for everyone. Below 3 approaches that might be worth trying.

Well, whatever works.. etc. I have my own techniques, some resemble those mentioned in the above video. But there are times when methods don’t work, become more of an obstruction, too technical, too deviating,  and one simply got to put mind and focus on a given target, and get there! Cheers 🙂
