Finding Time To Quit Procrastinating

I wonder if there will be a syndrome for this behavior, like Complex Procrastination Syndrome (CPS). Maybe there will be a pill you can take to cure CPS. Imagine a procrastinator trying to come up with a cure; we may never see it!

I am slowly beginning to think a certain degree of procrastination is maybe a good thing. It could be mankind’s natural way of dealing with stress.

If that poet lamented it 400 years ago and we’re still lamenting it today, then just maybe we should begin to see procrastination as our friend.

Procrastination could be like white blood cells, fighting the infection of priorities. When we get too many conflicting priorities (which seems to happen daily), procrastination cells kick in and start knocking down the bad priorities that don’t need to be dealt with, leaving us time for the really important things.

So CPS could be a cure for modern mankind’s stress; my gosh, we may have come up with a miracle cure, right here in the Week-Ender!

I hope the government doesn’t find out about it, though, as they’ll want to regulate it. I wonder if procrastination can be considered a First Amendment right? I’ll have to look into that…later.

Just reading this is probably causing you to procrastinate about something, or several somethings. Since we have established here that CPS is potentially a cure for stress…OMG, the Week-Ender can now be considered a contributing factor in the relief of stress in modern man!

I wonder if I should report this to the American Medical Association or the CDC or somebody?

Do your realize what this means? If we have a pandemic of CPS, it could lead to world peace, because everyone will chill out and focus on what’s really important.

We could have a “TGIF Pandattitude” (I just coined that phrase, which means a pandemic of TGIF attitude, so consider it copyrighted © but feel free to use it).

So, I think we have clearly established that it is Friday; we should procrastinate about something, contributing to our health and the health of all mankind, which will lead to world peace.

It’s going to be a great day!

  1. Procrastination only affects the chores we don’t want to do. Of course, when you’re talking about yard work, things keep growing and the chore also grows larger…and even less attractive!
