Procrastination is the inability to finish something on time.
In other words, it’s delaying something important.
We don’t procrastinate because we are lazy or because we are out of confidence, or better, self-esteem.
We procrastinate because we regret.
We regret watching that movie for five more minutes and it soon turned into two hours.
We regret not studying right from the beginning of the semester and now it feels a load.
We regret not starting earlier and now it feels late.
The surefire way to stop regretting is to stop having expectations.
Stop caring about your past or future.
Start looking into the present. Feel your breath. Feel the surrounding.
Don’t text your friends. Drive to their home.
Don’t order online. Shop with your mom.
Don’t sit. Go to the park with your colleagues.
Don’t eat. Enjoy every bite.
Regrets paralyze us to think. This then gets us to procrastinate. That procrastination again gets us to regret and the cycle continuous. Stop that, from now.
