3 Reasons to Get Up (Or Sometimes Sit Down) and Just Do It

“Just do it.”–Nike

Sometimes we find ourselves fumbling about and procrastinating to avoid doing certain things, whether it be laundry, our workout, or whatever. In the end, we usually finally finish it and are relieved; sometimes we aren’t because we took so long to finish it, we did it at a bad time, or it ended up taking time away from something else. The easiest way to fix this problem is to just get moving and fix it now while you (really do) have time.

1. Procrastination is, well, a waste of time. When we procrastinate, we are not only pushing something off until we “find the time,” we are also limiting ourselves on time for other opportunities. If you push back running, something else may come up later to where you can’t run, or you may end up making up an excuse why you cannot run today. Either way, procrastination is bad.

2. No such thing as perfect timing. Well, this is almost true anyways. . . But for 99.99% of stuff you do in life, there will not be a right time to do it, only a right-here-and-now time. You must take this moment as you can, despite being tired, washed up, or angry, and use it to get stuff done because it may be all you have.

3. It will be finished, and you’ll be happier. If you sit down or get up and do what you need to now, you will feel more refreshed about it later because, chances are, you will have more revitalization and free time at a later time when you find out that you need it most. With such burdens lifted from your shoulders, you will be able to take on tasks that really matter, which saves you time and helps you live your life the way you want.
