thoughtful thoughts

an epiphany?

On why one should not procrastinate:

You never know when someone will desperately need to talk to you about something. If they happen to desperately need you to listen or give them advice the night before a deadline, and you have absolutely no time because you’ve procrastinated and are leaving it all to the last minute, you lose the chance to be a supportive sister (or brother) in Christ, or, if you’re/they’re not Christian, a supportive friend. You lose the chance to deepen your friendship and to show the kind of love Christ commanded, just because you are rushing to meet a deadline. And the next time they are in need of a listening ear/advice, they may not turn to you because last time they needed you, you weren’t there for them.

Or they may not be in dire need of a listening ear. They might just want to catch up with you, or get to know you better. If you keep telling them you’re too busy to meet up or chat, they may eventually stop trying. Again, you lose the chance to get to know the person more, and to care for them.

So, no more procrastinating.

Note: you can also choose between giving your ear to listen at the time you’re needed and pull an all-nighter to finish your work. Neither option is a positive one.
