Procrastination is the thief of time. So my Granny used to say, and if that is true it is probably not your friend.
BUT, if you work with your natural tendency to procrastinate, let it steal other things as well, it can actually work in your favour and help your practice.
Somebody got under my skin the other day but I was busy, so I put off getting angry about it or writing them a rude message. I thought 'When I have the time, I'll get good and mad about that', but in the meantime, there's an old lady across the road who isn't very well and might like a wee visit and a chat, my neighbour's mail to collect because she is away at the moment, an adopted horse to feed, dogs need walking, someone coming for a healing session on their knee .... and then the phone rang and it was one of my soul Friends from Glasgow who was upset because his partner had gone temporarily missing so I stopped to have a kind word with him and cheer him up a bit.
And all the time I had it in the back of my mind to get angry and cross and write a REALLY nasty message to this person. However, I had an appointment with my shrink so I had to drive to the town and I saw a blackbird singing its little heart out on a chimney pot.
By the time I had got home, walked the dogs, done some ironing and cooked something yummy for dinner I though "Now, where is that bloomin' anger I was going to get aruond to?" But it had gone!
In all that other stuff I had permanently mislaid it. And when I thought about it again, it wasn't really worth getting angry about anyway.
So - rejoice in your procrastination and let it steal your negatives!
