Long word that.. procrastination
Its not, it means I’m sat here typing a blog post instead of finishing off an assignment that will conclude my 3 year degree
It also means (according to my handy thesaurus)
‘Postponement, Stalling, Delay, Putting Off’
Yes all of those things, infact if you looked in the dictionary for ‘procrastination’ you would see my ‘stalling’ face staring back at you
Why am I procrastinating again?
Why can’t I just crack on and get this finished?
I understand the brief, I’ve done the work so what stops me from just banging this assignment out?
I know the answer… I think
It’s the end of this particular part of my journey
A degree I was never supposed to start
A qualification I only ever dreamed of getting
An entry into a career I never imagined I could do
All that stands between me and the next step…
Is this assignment
And I seem to be stuck on this side of the river staring across
Yet not wanting to reach out for the oars to make my way over
The other side of the river sounds amazing
If not a little *lot* intimidating
So maybe that’s what I’m hanging on over here for
Here is known
Here is comfortable
Here is do-able
Here is a known quantity
Whereas over there… well that’s a whole new challenge
I know I will shape myself and get on with it
Have a word with myself and man up
But for now… well another coffee isn’t going to hurt is it?
