Procrastination

Uploaded by starfire on Mar 05, 2000

What does procrastination mean? Is it the stereotypical meaning of laziness? And this word, “procrastinate” has over time become derogatory and insulting. It has also been applied to the newest generation of the world. I have heard many comments from older folks that, “those teenagers are so lazy, they wait till the last minute to do anything.” But as Dennis Sell comments in the teenager’s defense, “It isn’t procrastination if you intend to do it.” I hope that this doesn’t become a question on the future resume. “Do you procrastinate, please check yes or no.” A wonderful lot of people would be out of the job; very talented people that just have a time trying to become “perfect.” Procrastination is a way of life and a person has to be good at it to play the “lazy” game.

But because he procrastinated in high school, he knows what to do and how to control himself in these situations. He hasn’t thrown himself off a cliff yet after about ten years of the strenuous work, that has to count for something. Procrastination is like many other things. It has its good and bad points, just like eating. A person must eat to live, but it makes people gain weight and there is a surplus of obese people in our nation, yet is also saves many lives a day like in Ethiopia. Procrastination can make or break a person. One can either handle the pressure or...
