Chronic Procrastinator Mistakenly Thinks He Works Well Under Pressure
On Thursday evening, as he struggled to fill out forms with waves of anxiety coursing through his body, Mike Patel had an epiphany that can only be described as deluded. Mike believed that he was able to think of ideas and answers to application questions much faster at this late hour, than when he first skim read the forms three months prior.
It dawned on him that the reason for his lack of success wasn't because of laziness, disorganisation or his own sense of self-entitlement. Instead, he simply needed to put himself under severe time constraints to make his brain work at full capacity.
“I thought I had a fundamental fear of failure, or was just lazy. But one day before sending off something two minutes before it was due, I thought, hey… I was super efficient just then, maybe I work well under pressure.”
With this newfound confidence, Mike is planning on taking up some new hobbies and overcommitting to a variety of social engagements and leisure activities.
“I’m leaving my job on Monday, and need to line up some freelance work, so i’ll get cracking in a few weeks.”
We talked to Mike a few weeks later, despite sounding a bit unsure, he said he had committed to some really big projects over the year. None of which had anything to do with his real aspirations to be a writer.
