Procrastination A Destiny Destroyer

Posted on

WELCOME BACK. The scripture says “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done” (Eccl. 11:4TLB). Procrastination is a deadly destiny disease and destroyer of life that causes backwardness and mediocrity in some of the developing nations of the world, most importantly in the nation where we live. The question is, what does it mean to procrastinate? It means to put off, to hedge, to defer, to interrupt, to hold off or put a stop to your dream. To procrastinate also means unreliability or drag your feet and do nothing positive about the realization of your dream. Procrastination is a natural destroyer of opportunity and the exact opposite of expedition, the capacity to efficiently produce excellently at higher frequency. Procrastination slows down many would-be champions and heroes. Although, the reason most of the people procrastinate is fear. They are so scared of stepping out on their vision that they keep delaying it. Fear makes them suspend their dream indefinitely. They give all kinds of excuses but it is really fear of starting that makes them delay their destiny. Most people procrastinate because they are perfectionists. They think that unless there dream is perfect, they have failed. The need to be perfect causes them to accomplish less and less until they are completely paralysed by the fear of doing something that isn’t perfect. The truth of the matter is that no one can ever attain perfection. We all can attained excellence, we can accomplish our only best but waiting for perfection is a doorway for waiting to fail and experience mediocrity.

Steve Jobs of Apple, makers of the Mac computer and the iPod started his business with his partner in a garage. They didn’t wait until they had an office in a highbrow area before launching their business. Take a look at those iPod or the iPhone today and see how far they have come since their days in a garage. No successful venture started at the top, they all started from the bottom. They may look close to perfection today but they never began that way. You should do the same. Try to produce excellence with the capacity or resources you presently have at your disposal then make continuous improvements as you go along. I have met many people with excuses of not starting their business just because of lack of money, and they are waiting until they have all the money they need to start the business at the highest entry level. They keep on waiting and waiting but nothing happens and they sometimes get dejected, depressed, discouraged and disheartened. If the world had waited for perfection, it would not have attained the level of progress and development it has achieved today. You see, those who are ignorant succumb to fear, get paralysed, abandoned their responsibility and give up on their dream because they want to be perfect in their dealings which is not possible at the starting point. Remember, perfectionists want to have the perfect business but that never happens. Don’t be a procrastinator, prefer to accomplish all your work in a deadline-induced panic. Be wise!
