Procrastination is good. There, I said it. And I believe it.
Procrastination is the art of putting things off for a later time. It is a postponement of action. It takes the form of “Always leave for tomorrow what you do not feel like doing today.” So why is this a good thing? Glad you asked.
Procrastination allows time to decide whether the task actually needs to be done. Often, waiting will demonstrate that no action was needed. I don’t believe in the “Do something, even if it is wrong” mentality. I believe in doing the right thing at the right time when the right information is available. Unrealistic time constraints tend to cause damage.
Another great benefit of procrastination is that it gets a lot of work done. What? It’s true. The best way to justify not doing something now is to do something else that is productive. You don’t want to paint that room today so you cut the grass. You don’t want to cut the grass today so you wash the car. You don’t want to wash the car today so you write a moan.
I don’t want to write another moan, so I’m going to play poker.
