Procrastination: Productivity Medicine Or Poison?

Procrastination: Productivity Medicine Or Poison

Have you ever been told procrastination is a good thing? Likely not. The reasons you shouldn’t procrastinate are endless: it increases your anxiety and stress, the task could take longer than expected, you could run out of time, the result is sloppy work, something more important could come up, you won’t have time to make edits, working under pressure makes the job more tough, and so on.

So is procrastination ever a good thing? Yes! For many people in many circumstances, procrastination can be a very good thing. I have had countless occasions where I procrastinated and the results were amazing! Things turned out better than expected and definitely better than if I had spent months preparing. I’m guessing many of you have had similar experiences but all you ever hear from others is, “You shouldn’t leave important things to the last minute.”

Embrace it. Not sure if procrastination is for you?
