There is procrastination and there is plain damn laziness.
Have you ever heard the annoying phrase, ‘I want to do …’ and ‘I will look into this tomorrow’ and the job never gets done?
TOMORROW NEVER DIES!
Time waits for no man. I find that time flies by very fast, when you are engrossed in an exciting project, than when you are sitting down idly doing nothing.
I am not saying that all idleness is from laziness, as some people may suffer from an illness where they either tire easily or they are unable to bring themselves to complete a task because they have a lack of motivation due to an underlying cause.
I wish I could say that I have lazy days, they are very rare for me as I am busy mentally, physically, and spiritually.
If I have a new idea, I will make sure that I will try to complete it. I cannot even relax on a vacation as I come from a family that work very hard and are always on the go.
The only time I get to rest is when I am sick, but that would only be physically resting as my mind never switches off.
There are people, who are generally well, who live a sedentary life, they have the capacity to do more with their lives, but they are so stuck in the routine of being idle and spending their time watching daytime television, eating takeaways, and just existing. Some people live in their beds.
Today’s great technology has made it possible that some people do not need to leave their homes as everything can be completed online. Ordered and delivered too.
This could be a positive or negative as you can work from home and never have to leave the house unless you have an appointment.
It suits me fine in some ways, but I am a sociable person, although I love my own company, I like to meet other people who are on my level. I love social events and networking. My world will never consist of a small selection of people. I am interested in learning about people’s journeys in life.
Procrastination is not the same as laziness, it is when you spend too much time thinking rather than acting on a plan. This is when opportunities pass you by.
As much as I can be, I am a get up and get on with it, person, if someone requires me to get involved in a project which requires research or finding the right people for the job, they can rely on me as I would have already started it.
I cannot work with people who leave things till the last minute or who tend to just talk the talk. They make promises that they cannot fulfil, and it turns out that they are not as connected as they made you believe.
I get so frustrated with having to chase up a request, hence why I would rather take care of things myself to save me the headache.
My motto is ‘you want a job done properly, do it yourself”
I live my life by those words, no procrastination, no idle talk and just being always proactive when and where it is necessary.
I am reliable and can be depended on to fulfil the task in hand.
But there must be a balance in everything you do, as you may come under a lot of pressure, especially in your working lives, to juggle things around.
Only take on what you are capable of handling.
There are no prizes for overworking yourself, just health risks.
Do business with like-minded people as it saves time and stress.
Don’t make promises you cannot keep.
Scripture of Balance
