Have you ever felts bad or perplexed about life? Have you Whenever you felt stress to doing the homework or being lazy to work on things while you just stay on social media or watching the video wasting times. The difference between dreams and fantasies is whether you have actual actions or not. For example, those who had dreaming hard about success, or become professional person, or lives in well life style. If this person does not actually start working, then the dream never become true. Nether those who had being works, studies, plan, and practices hard to reach their dream become true. The procrastination always a problem that struggles people, it makes them felt lazy, stress, perplexed, and unlike to start their work such as myself. Over the years, I’ve been a procrastinator, no matter how much I want to avoid it. In daily life, there are such things like homework, study, essays, work, and schools. My instinct is to start at late as possible. Being a procrastinator, I try many ways, but it just doesn’t work for me to stay be a delay for something. For example, it is only until the last moment, the night before, that I start to write an essay that had been assigned for two weeks. Once, the professor had assigned the class an essay assignment due in two weeks. In the beginning, I planned well as soon as possible, to complete the assignment in the first week. However, the real-life always doesn’t go how I planned or thought. The first week ran out very fast, since I had to study for an exam, read novels, and watch YouTube videos out. The next week, I tried to start the essay, but I felt unhappy and stressful because the research

So, I was going to sleep and doing other things such as thinking about life to try forgetting and avoided the essay I should have to write about. Until, the night before for the due day, I start begained my draft. Finally, I used overnight to finish the essay and turn in the next day in class. I felt disappointed about the article I write because I can write better if I have more time. Procrastination can be described in this Greek poem from 700 B.C. “do not put your work off till tomorrow and the day after; for a sluggish worker does not fill his barn, nor one who puts off his work: industry makes work go well, but a man who puts off works is always at hand-grips with ruin.”-Hersiod, works and days.(...) When I saw this poem surprised because over century ago already had people seen “procrastination” had happen in their daily life. In Greek poetry tell us do not put you today work to tomorrow because tomorrow has new things to work on. If you are delaying work to the next day, then there will have so much work for you, that was cannot be able to complete.
