This Is What Procrastination Does

Don’t perceive a decision as a life sentence

Sometimes making a decision feels like a life sentence — so you procrastinate (forever). After all, God forbid you get it wrong, and there’s no turning back.

But is it really the case?

Maybe you can treat it as a test that doesn’t require big commitments/declarations. Maybe you can take it a little bit easy.

Most life decisions are reversible. If, for example, you regret your decision, you can probably turn things around.

Procrastination helped me avoid making tough decisions, take responsibility, and make the changes I had to make.

Now I can say:

  1. Seeing a decision as a life sentence makes life harder.
  2. Taking risks — as you see fit — can open you up to more flow in life.

The temporary discomfort may be a small price if you feel alive.

Thoughts?
