'Procrastination' Chapter

Procrastination

You will procrastinate to the degree that the outcome will have a delayed arrival and to the degree that you are impulsive. We aren’t meant to behave as mechanisms never deviating from an assigned function, but likewise if we deviate at every turn and in response to every distraction, our creative efforts will be reliably thwarted. Either way our quality of life takes a serious dive. So we have these two competing motivations so how do we find that balance?

People think themselves the authors of their own being, rather than the children of a greater reality, at least most people commonly do. So they impede the flow of energy by fixing or locking it into patterns that actualize not the desired outcomes they seek. They don’t create the fulfilment of the goals so adamantly sought after.

“How soon ‘not now’ becomes ‘never’.” Martin Luther (German Priest and Scholar 1483-1546)

“Procrastination is the thief of time.” Edward Young (English literary Critic, Poet and Dramatist, 1683-1765)
