Whether you are 12 or 103 procrastination (even in little things) is a normal. it is something that is sometimes expected by certain people who have low expectations. I am such a bad procrastinator that it's really hard to stop. I don't get things done so I end up having to finish them on Saturdays when I should be enjoying family, friends, and a free day. This habit is something that needs to stop! It's stealing from yourself and others because you are wasting time on luxuries (Facebook, Internet, texting, etc...) that should be enjoyed after the important work things are done. If we learn diligence at an early age, say in between the ages of 12 and 15, jobs will be easier to find, new opportunities will be able to be explored, and we will be closer to God. Procrastination limits our time with God, increases stress, and binds us from the freedom of time. God promotes peace, freedom, and a strong relationship with him, but we don't realize it. He blesses us with the time we have, and when we procrastinate, we misuse the gift God gave to us. Think about that for a moment.
Finding time for everything except God and school is mostly my problem. Somtimes I have a very productive day with school and God and everything else, but other days, I just get so distracted that I put every single thing that matters on the back burner. I am so sad about the months that I missed out on getting to be with and getting to know God. I don't want you to regret that either. God needs to bethe number one thing. We should never procrastinate on God. School and work need to be done diligently. Spending timewith God though should not become a chore. Don't let it become a chore!
Basically, procrastination is the opposite of working hard and a synonym (in my mind) of laziness, irresponsibility, and lack of priorities if that makes any sense.
