This is a response to the one-word prompt “Later” by “The Daily Post.”
In our busy days and lives, we all tend to put off some things for later that we see not as important/time sensitive as other things. This, unfortunately, is a mistake because all that does is add to more things that we will have to do at a later date/time. Putting off the “small” things till later does not lesson our “loads” or give us more time, but actually less.
At the time, we make the decision to “put off” something, it may deceptively seem like the best thing to do; when it is really not. But that is how we humans seem to function most of the time, by always looking for the easy way or path of least resistance; or at the very least what appears to be so at the time. Because of who we are, we are very easily taken in by first appearances without looking deeper.
So the next time you are pulled to “put something off” till later, stop and think if that is really the best thing to do. Take a real long look at all you have on your plate, both at the moment and for the “later” time to see just how that will affect you and getting everything done.
