Procrastination, How Much I Hate You!


This is Saturday the 26th, and I’m sitting right in front of my laptop, and all you’ll probably want to know is that I have been delaying my more than urgent work since the last five days of the week. Yeah, in all probabilities, I’m procrastinating, but believe me, it’s all unintentional because I desperately want to do my job asap. Hmm! I know you are smiling sarcastically right now at my foolish, lazy attitude but believe me, that’s how it feels when you are in this psycho-physical state of procrastination. And while I’m writing this, as many as ten times I have watched DJ Snake’s “Taki Taki” video. I told you, that’s how procrastination feels.

Two years ago, I had a golden opportunity to study at the world's eleventh best university, all I was required to do was devote my undivided attention to my alma mater and bring two percent less than hundred to ace it (yeah! It was as easy as I made it sound). And you guessed it right, I wasn’t able to reach there, thanks to my ever-dominating habit loop of procrastination, not because I wasn’t capable but because I consciously made myself helpless.

Let me tell you another story, recently I went to represent my educational institute as a student delegate at an acclaimed international platform. We had the competition two days after arriving in that international city. Having hustled a lot back in India to be able to perform well here, we assumed that it wasn’t that important to practice enough two days before the exam. Rather, we thought that we have got a chance to visit a foreign land and it would be better to satisfy our craving to explore and hang around instead of wasting time back in our rooms to study hard for that ‘so called’ exam (after all you know how easy I make things sound). My coach kept on insisting me (being the team leader) to practice some sums as the community around us was far better than us, but I, slave of my master “procrastination”, felt on delaying her requests. Finally we were there, sitting at our desks in the exam hall on the competition day and as expected (by you) we couldn’t secure the top three places in the merit and had to satisfy ourselves with a participation certification. And here I was, dejected, demeaned, not before my coach but before my conscience, unable to figure out how to convince myself.

Why am I writing all this here? To remind myself of how serious toll procrastination has had on me; to become reminiscent of how ‘shi*’ I felt after all that. So, that I stop doing this right now and do the task which I supposed to do the most right now! (Bye!)
