The Pro’s and Con’s of Procrastination

“Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.” ~Don Marquis. Procrastination is in most (in fact almost always) a con it drags you down. Even if you complete your project procrastination will most likely render it uninspired. But remember there is a pro in procrastination.

Last year, I was in the Jr. Humanities and we learned about the goods of first and second intent. Goods of first intent is your passion or the thing you love. The goods of second intent are the goods that get you to your first intent (Money). Now I was thinking this afternoon and realized I still have a blog to write so i don’t flunk Humanities. This is the type of procrastination you should avoid. But when we learned about first and second intent I remembered the third principle, we learned about was Leisure. Leisure is more or less a mind break that you take when your working hard on your second intent. Because when you work hard your head usually gets a bit stressed and you cant think or preform well. So when your stressed, you should take a short break to rest your mind. When writing an essay test this is very use full because when I’m writing i find myself very frustrated and flustered at the awe magnitude of the task before me. But you must remember to not take to many breaks or leisure will turn into procrastination. With that in mind I hope you enjoy writing your essay test and Fall break
