Procrastination is typically seen as a bad thing, people frown upon those who put something off until the last minute. That's how some people work though; physically unable to do something, or at least do it well, until they have no other choice than to sit down and do it. I am one of those people. As you can tell clearly because here I am at 9:30 writing my blog post that is due at 10pm.
I am a very busy individual, but I have however learned, or more so taught myself, how to make my procrastination work for me. For example, like most teenagers when my room is a mess I hate cleaning it. So if I actually have a reason to clean it, it will get done faster. When I was younger I always had to clean my room if someone came over, that was the only time I ever really cleaned my room. So if I thought it was getting messy I would have someone over, that way I absolutely had to clean my room. Mission accomplished.
I can also be a very indecisive person sometimes, so for an assignment like this where we have the whole world to choose a topic from, I sat for about an hour contemplating different ideas. And each one was just as good as the next, I just could not pick a single one. Then I realized there was almost no time left to actually write. So I started writing about what was keeping me from writing. And so far I think I have a pretty good post. But when I procrastinate I do not have time to sit and ponder on different ideas or second-guess myself. I just have to pick one and go.
For the most part, I would consider myself a pretty good procrastinator, I am still fine-tuning the art of procrastination, it will be perfected eventually. But maybe I need a deadline for that.
