“She’ll be right mate!” A sentiment we Aussies use to support our love of leaving things to the last minute due to the relationship we lovingly nurture with procrastination. “Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time” or perhaps “diamonds are formed under pressure” may resonate with those that are not familiar with this Australian view on life but however you look at it, procrastination is certainly a feature in most if not all of our lives.
Take our recent requirement for isolation as an example. There are those that spent the time rediscovering old pleasures or reigniting their passion, some even taking up new and exciting endeavours such as mastering design software platforms or exploring the world of blogs. Then there are those that had all the best intentions to do, try or be something new but succumbed to the pitfalls of procrastination to emerge from isolation with the same skills and ideals as always.
Procrastination can be a veritable rabbit hole that once descended into, twists and turns every which way until all sense of time and place is lost. Putting off activities, especially those that carry with them some form of challenge can inevitably impact on the mental and physical health of those who are unable to follow that intrepid warren back to the surface to once again feel the warmth of the sun on their skin. The cloud of requirements and expectations can quickly gather and becoming overwhelming.
