it’s just after 9pm and I have been in bed all day…no i didn’t sleep all day, but I haven’t left the hostel. I also haven’t eaten anything substantial. I wrote a few (say 30) lines of code & I watched a movie. I also tweeted a little. my internet expired so I’m doing this via mobile. and the cause of all this is the fact that my wallet got nabbed…again!! I’m the most careless individual I know… 😦 ..the good thing is I just left the hostel… #WINNING… 😀
contrary to what you may be thinking if you are still reading this, this is not a rant post! it is about a “not-so-new” law I decided to tag “The Delay law”. I remembered it when I thought of some of the stuff I have watched/read in the past. when I watched movies about kidnappings, they always said a particular thing: that the more time that passes by with the kidnapped person (e.g. you) in the kidnappers custody, the lesser the chances of ever finding the kidnapped one. so by a week, if you haven’t been found already, ur chances are greatly infinitesimal! *now crying for you*…
but where am I going with all this? this little fact is not only applicable to crime investigation, but in many other aspects of our lives, when we procrastinate. procrastination is one of the most effective tools the devil (forgive me if I’m being “religiously offensive”) uses to deny us plenty stuff. this is mainly because the more we delay stuff we want to do, the lesser the chances we eventually do ’em. for example, you may decide to read a particular book in your possession. you promise yourself you’ll start tomorrow. Tomorrow comes & unfortunately you get caught up in lectures. the next day you fall ill. Before you know it, you may even forget you wanted to read the book in the 1st place. hence you may never actually read the book. the book may contain a touching story that may have changed your life. you just missed out on that! however, if you had started at the time you had the intention to read it, perhaps you woulda been spellbound such that you won’t forget about the book till you finish it. 2 different scenarios! and the thing that separates them is the one decision you made to delay that action. *sigh*, I am the worst culprit of this that I know. I guess this is one of the reasons I like doing this, I just admonished myself.
I know it doesn’t go this way all the time, but still, avoid delaying stuff you can do now. you’ll achieve more, trust me! ;)… thanks to Hamid, I will now eat this nice looking fufu in front of me! good night!
