Procrastination – Is it a boon or bane?

The easiest way to complete a task for the day is to put it off for later – tomorrow, day after, next week, next month, next year?... And while there’s so much said and written on the banes of procrastination, there are some definite boons as well… 

For whatever reason,
If something has not happened, then probably it was not meant to happen & may be this is good
If something was undone, then probably it was not meant to be done & may be this is good
If something was not said, then probably it was not meant to be said & may be this is good

And I am not saying that you should procrastinate – There are things that we got to do within a fixed timeline and there also could be implications if we endlessly procrastinate.

But if you do procrastinate – They may be there is a reason to it. Something which you will probably realize only sometime later in life.

Over the past few years, there have been so many things in my life which I did not do or did not say or which did not happen. And looking back, I do find that it’s all for the good. Sometimes we realize the reason for many things only later in life. And when I do spend a quiet moment in trying to connect the dots of life, I do believe that procrastination has indeed been a big BOON!!!
