The cage of procrastination

I spent the last weeks (months?) observing and gathering stuff.

I don’t feel ready to let out, or attempt to bring what I collected on the table.

Maybe I just can’t admit I’m procrastinating.

Is waiting for the right moment just an excuse to postpone our plans?

Or is it a wise thing to do?

All I know is that I hate deadlines!

 

I think there could be different reasons why someone might always avoid facing the challenge of doing something, but they tend to revolve around the fear of failure.

It gets tougher when you realize you have no control over the consequences of your actions, especially on the internet. You know, what comes here stays here. Some platforms will make you believe you can delete the content you shared but, most of the time, they’re deceiving you. Perhaps not voluntarily, but they do because it’s something they don’t have control over either, yet they give us the option to delete content like it would make a difference.

It is not the case for Virily, as the content we post here somehow becomes theirs. It’s the case for most platforms, but if the terms of service clearly state so, we can’t act like we didn’t know. Or better, we could but then it’s our fault: ignorantia juris non excusat.

Then I suppose it isn’t fear of failure alone, but fear of responsibility.

 

I could spend hours writing about nothing, I came to discover this talent of mine recently, like right now. I wonder what I could use it for…
