Procrastination; we are all experts at it. I mean, we are human beings after all. When we set ourselves up to do a ridiculous challenge, especially in an environment that is not welcoming, the chances of a human being procrastinating is quite large.
Why do we procrastinate?
Our minds! We think unlike any other animal. And that’s amazing. I’m forever grateful.
But why the fear? If we procrastinate then we are likely to be afraid of whatever we are putting off. I put off writing this blog post. Why? I’m just typing what my mind is thinking. How difficult is this? Difficult enough to distract myself with Facebook for about 10 minutes.
But no matter. Here I am typing away for a second night in a row. I’m forming a habit.
What are your afraid of?
I’m in Grand Rapids, MI right now because of a random text I received 2 weeks ago from a good friend of mine. Her 5 month old daughter passed away. I won’t get into the details but the death was preventable and likely the fault of a the hospital that she was being taken too for checkups.
You likely won’t get to choose when your last breath is. I can not even imagine what my friend went through and is still going through. I have 2 9 month old nephews whom I’m both in love with.
Love your family. Love your friends. Love strangers.
Don’t sit on the sidelines. Get your ass in the game.
The best way to learn is to do.
