Procrastination

Procrastination.

Such a complex word for something we all experience.

My procrastination has many forms. It can range from procrastinating work up to a day before the deadline or waiting to take a shower and thinking about skipping another day.

I believe I’m not able to live without procrastination; it’s a huge part of me and it makes me more focused when it matters. Motivates me when needed. Makes me able to deliver a feature nicely on time.

I also suffer from it. Sometimes the work I need to do is underestimated, and I just can’t make the deadline anymore. This feeling sucks, but it teaches me to either become better at time management or start earlier. I guess we all know what the answer to that is.

It was one of the main reasons I was not able to finish my school in a normal way. Teachers expect you to do everything on time on the subjects they deem important, something that was not working in my head.
