The Disease of Procrastination

By Nelu96, Windhoek, Namibia

For many people, tomorrow is the busiest day of the week. Procrastination is a disease that has infected everybody at least once in their lifetime. It is often easier for one to plaster today’s tasks on tomorrow’s timetable. We would much rather enjoy our precious time now in exchange for a tiresome tomorrow. But would it not be better to work now and rest later, knowing that your pleasure is paid for?

Procrastination can have catastrophic consequences. If you do an important school assignment right before it is due, it might turn out to have poor quality and cost you a great deal of marks. You might jeopardize your life if you keep on postponing a doctor’s appointment to report peculiar symptoms. If you happen to have a fatal illness such as cancer, you might lose the precious opportunity to save your life while you still can.
