It’s no surprise that many people procrastinate in the modern world. Everything we use has a heightened sense of convenience. Communication, entertainment, and knowledge are easily obtainable at the touch of a button. None of this was ever meant to generate the degree of procrastination found in the modern society of today. Innovations have procured new levels of technology, simplicity, and accessibility for users of different backgrounds, and these users are unknowingly being babied into living more convenient lives. This creates a comfort zone of little effort that reoccurs in every facet of our lives. What does it take to escape this “comfort zone”? It takes determination. It takes the will of the individual to rebound from this idle state that we so often traverse. Believing in ourselves is half the battle. The rest is just progression. At this juncture, we are are given an ultimatum. We can waffle the thought of completion and tell ourselves that it could be done another time, or, we can realize that our task will not take up the whole day, rather a portion of it. There is no point in crying over spilled milk. There’s no secret to losing habits of procrastination. Progression is life, and there’s no changing that.
