Cyndi Seidler on procrastination

Most of us know that famous phrase from the movie “Gone With The Wind” of Scarlett O’Hara saying, “I’ll think about that tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.” That about sums up the thought pattern a lot of us adopt when we don’t want to deal with something presently.

We hear the word procrastination so often that I think the word is tuned out of our heads. What I mean is, it becomes something we hear so much of that we don’t even hear it anymore and can’t even absorb the thought of it.

It may seem to help us take our minds off something for now, yet the situation is still going to be there the next day and the day after, as so on. And shifting our attention off of that situation could lead to unsatisfactory circumstances.

Actually, if the situation is dire enough, putting something important off a day or more may lead to something a little more severe than unsatisfactory. It could turn out disastrous.

But, you already knew this.

So why am I bothering to write an article about a topic a lot of us will just skip over and not bother reading about? Well, I don’t know however I felt inclined to put the topic in your face again.

I will say this though, not everything is an emergency that we need to handle right away. Some things are important that do not have dire circumstances attached to it if we don’t do it right now, today.

During times like this when our economy has crashed because of the Corona virus lock-down, I felt that it was important to take all the opportunities we can to improve things in our lives.

If those life improvements are related to health or diet or fitness or spiritual goals or making our home spaces better, now is the time to do it. When I say “now” I mean presently, possibly today.

And when our economy is restarted and we go back to our busy lives, we should still recognize the importance of continuing to take time for ourselves to improve our lives.

There, I’ve said what I’ve come here to say. Thumbs up for reading this!
