Ahhh that troublesome procrastination
Never get there if it were a destination
It is the act of not following through
On a task that you have set out to do!
It’s always because we let our little brain
Befuddle and cause better judgment to wane
It is as if we are like Jekyll and Hyde
Like a person’s a coin that is born with two sides One makes the plan and sets all the goals
The other side pokes that good plan full of holes
We know what is best or at least we’re aware
But get us to act? In the end we don’t care
The price we pay between the act and reward
We fool ourselves thinking that we can afford
It is going to bed with all hope for next day
But often we dream all incitement away
But do not despair for I have some advice
That might help defeat what we feel is a vice
Something that counters that procrastination
Is learning to “bundle” a little temptation
ONLY do something that brings you great joy
With something you stall because it annoys
You’re only allowed the cool music you like
To be listened to when on an exercise bike
You only will watch your most fave “Jersey Shore”
When doing an absolute bore of a chore
I know it sounds silly but maybe it works
To associate bothersome things with a perk!
We’ll conquer this problem, one day we will show ‘em!
(Yet even I procrastinated writing this poem…)
It’s okay if we live our lives fighting this crime
Changing a lifelong behaviour takes time!
