I think the idea of procrastination is bizarre. Many people imagine that they are procrastinators and they struggle to overcome the tendency to put work off. It’s something I don’t feel myself. When people are living mindful lives, we enjoy whatever we are doing so there is no need to put it off.

The whole notion of procrastination strikes me as bizarre. There are always things we’re not doing whenever we choose to do anything, and by that reasoning, each of us is always procrastinating. Too many of us choose to demean ourselves rather than take responsibility for our choices.

It made me realize that I was an anti-crastinator.
