Procrastination. This is not only something I face, but numerous other students do as well. By definition, procrastination is “the action of delaying or postponing something,” but why do so many students deal with this conflict?
Well, there are multiple reasons. One of the main causes is a busy schedule, and what makes an occupied schedule are extracurricular activities. Extracurricular activities are recommended and encouraged by school systems throughout the nation due to their various benefits. Although, they come with a price, which is commitment and time.
Many people blame their procrastination on their out of school activities, but scientists say it is more of a psychological dilemma. In an article I recently read, it states that perfectionists are far more likely to procrastinate. Reasons for this are because it is more commonly accepted to never complete your tasks rather than to face the fear of not completing them to the best of your likings. I myself and many others are perfectionists and will come up with exotic excuses on why we should push back our work to the morning of.
Procrastination affects me greatly, not only because of the duties I put off, but the amount of stress I receive. This stress is held on my shoulders throughout the week and can even disturb my work in other classes. This not only in regards school, but also my attitude towards friends and family members. At the end of an aggravating day of school and afternoon liveliness, all that would satisfy me is dinner and a good night’s rest. I don’t even ponder finishing all of my homework that night but rather just completing it in the morning before school. Therefore, having previous and recent assignments to fulfill, can completely ruin your night, making your mood extremely poor towards others.
Another downfall from hesitating to complete your work is using valuable time on the weekends that could be spent doing countless other plans. There has been many incidents for me where I needed to cancel a lunch with a friend, or even weekend trips.
All in all, procrastination should not be applicable towards your daily life to to all of the consequences that follow it.
