The reason we procrastinate is because we think we have time.

Let me explain:

Let’s say you have a college assignment to submit a week later.
And your default is to start working on the deadlines.
Because of which, the quality of your work suffers.
So does your sleep cycle and your productivity.

Thus, when we think we have time, we are essentially putting the onus of letting the last moment overcome the progress of small wins. Which ultimately makes us lose.

Seneca says, it is not much about what you bear, rather how you bear it.

It is not much about what is it you have to work on, rather how you work on it systematically.
