One Thousand Word Challenge 153: Rambling About Procrastination

You know, sometimes I really need to be careful with the whole being lazy thing. One moment I’m just there, relaxing, putting off doing things and the next it is evening, I’m tired and struggling to get things done.

I was hoping to avoid this, but it seems as though I’ve fallen back into my old traps, though they were always there, now that I think about it.

It’s a terrible thing as it’s a good way to lose a lot of time for little reason, but sometimes it happens. That said, it happens a lot and I need to shake it off and out of my system. I’ve other things that I need to get done and it’s eating away at my time. It is eroding the time that I have and I want to make the most of it.

At the same time there are times where rest is necessary. It can be hard to go and push on forward if you’re running on empty all the time. However, I’d like to believe that sometimes procrastination is not rest. It’s just procrastination. Sometimes it can be a sign that rest is needed, but most of the time it is not a sign of that. Maybe. To be honest, I don’t really know. I do know, however, that I’m doing too much of it. If you read all of this (and a lot of the other things that I write), it becomes obvious that I’m heavily invested in procrastinating and that, to me, means that I need to get out of it as it’s just causing more issues than it is solving.

There are many ways that I can follow in order to get out of procrastinating, but ultimately what it is going to come down to is working on doing things and trying to focus on the doing of those things so as to stop procrastinating, or something. Hard work and all that. Not always the best way to go about it and can have some bad effects, but it is a way and it is something that I should do more of rather than less.

I sit here and I write about this and there are so many other things that I could be doing. I could be writing about other things. I could be processing photos. However, instead of doing any of that, I write about procrastinating and in doing so I am procrastinating as I am not doing what I need to do. Still, I am doing something that I want to do and in a way that is a form of being productive, so I should perhaps consider this some sort of neutral thing rather than more loss.

Still, perhaps I should think about this more and keep on going for a bit and see what comes out of what it is that I am writing at the present moment. Then again, perhaps I shouldn’t.

I do think that, at this stage, rest is very much needed. I should be going to sleep soon as I need to feel awake for tomorrow. Tomorrow is a large day and there will be many things that I need to take care of. It is the way things go and I am certainly going through them, or something. It would be less busy had I not procrastinated, but that is something that I now have to deal with and maybe I will learn a lesson from all of this. Whatever that lesson would be, I’ve no idea. I know that there is one, however and I’m sure that it will come to me eventually.

Then again, maybe it will not. Maybe I will not learn the lesson and keep on making the same mistakes over and over again. That is a possibility, and one that should not be ignored. Then again, there is also the possibility that I will learn the lesson and keep on making the same mistakes anyway. Bad habits can be difficult to shake. Still, I should try and shake them off. Be a better, more productive person. Get things done and out of the way. And so on and so forth.

You get the idea.

Someone has to, and it sure isn’t going to be me right now. I’ve other things to get and understand and there are only so many hours in the day to do all that kind of stuff. Therefore, I won’t learn any lessons today or tomorrow. Maybe at another juncture in time. Right now I’ll just go ahead blindly into whatever it is that I am rushing into and I will see what happens. There will be no thinking about anything and there will be no decisions made other than ones on a whim. There probably is a way to tell as to what will happen, but I’m not going to consider that; I just want to charge in blindly and not expect a thing other than the continuation of my own actions.

So anyway, as I was saying, procrastination can be a bad thing. Probably always is a bad thing, but maybe it is also a sign of things. Maybe some things need to change, but time is precious and the most needs to be made of it. If not, then the most is not made of it and that gets you nowhere, so therefore something something, but who am I to say how people should and should not use their time? What is productive for me might not be for others and therefore there are a lot of things to consider there. There is much rumination ahead, but I am one person, but at the moment I have a bit of spare time, so maybe I can think about this now.

It probably would be better to do so rather than later, but I’ll worry about that later as there are things that I need to do beforehand, such as a rather large amount of procrastination.

Finally, I’ve written another self-demonstrating post.

Written at home.
