Procrastination and Wet Dreams

Procrastination and Wet Dreams

Our generation has led us to become prone toward some certain things like insomnia, procrastination, long lasting crippling depression even after our puberty and generating memes to be exact in some senses. Adversities of nature don’t usually hit us hard, and we’ve grown less aware of our existence’s extinction. Procrastination has got into our lives without procrastinating. Had it come to a generation later! Oh dear oh dear! The whole scenario would’ve been a golden portrait. But let’s be thankful in a way that procrastination has been procrastinating since the beginning of the human race because had it come any sooner, we could’ve been living in the 70’s right now.

The person writing to the readers have also been procrastinating for this very article as he’s no different from others of this generation or is he? Or are you? We’ll leave the thinking part ‘for later’. It’s not procrastination in general sense as the thinking progression requires the reader’s brain’s consent to stick to a fact after gathering of information. So if you’re thinking procrastination isn’t letting you in through your dreams, you’re right. Richard Paul Evans quoted his famous phrase,”Procrastination is the thief of dreams”. From our infant stage to our age at this moment we’ve been told by the elders that dreams are of two kinds: the one we see with our eyes closed and the other we see our eyes open. Paul Evans has been pointing to the type we see with our eyes open. The dream to become the cherished character we all individually want to conquer. So what’s with the wet dreams? It’s a part of us which doesn’t procrastinate regardless the surroundings and environment despite being the best in procrastination. It’s going to sound gross to take inspiration from wet dreams but to be very honest, our generation and our way of thinking have pushed us to the edge. Had the dreams been less sensual! Had the ejaculation stopped so you wouldn’t wake up with a wet patch on your pants! But our body doesn’t procrastinate. Procrastination can win and conquer only then when we live in perfection bounded by procrastination or in total imperfections.

There are no more elegant examples of the cyclical self-torture of procrastination than the lyrics to a song from the musical ‘You’re a Good’ Man by Charlie Brown. Our hero has a book report due. He sings in a halting, panicky monotone: “If I start writing now…when I’m not really rested…it could upset my thinking which is not good at all…I’ll get a fresh start tomorrow…and it’s not due till Wednesday…so I’ll…have all of Tuesday unless…something should happen…Why does this always happen…I should be outside playing…getting fresh air and the sunshine…I work best under pressure and there’ll be lots of pressure if I…wait till tomorrow…I should start writing now but if I…start writing now when I’m not really rested…it could upset my thinking…which is not good at all.”

Ring a bell? It’s a monolog we all experience in some form, an agonizing internal conversation that feels the best of us. And that’s where things start to get interesting: Procrastination is so relatable, so universal, because of the human brain, it turns out, is wired for it. Science explains Charlie Brown’s seesaw sensibility as a fight that is sparked between two parts of the mind when it’s faced with a distasteful activity: a battle of the limbic system (the unconscious zone that includes the pleasure center) and the prefrontal cortex (the internal “planner”). When the limbic system wins, and that’s pretty often, the result is putting off for tomorrow what could (and should) be done today.

Here’s a bit more scientific backup, so you can stop blaming yourself (or your parents, your birth sign, the weather) and start chalking up procrastination to biology. The limbic system, one of the oldest and most dominant portions of the brain, is on automatic. It tells you to, says, pull your hand away from a flame—and also to flee from unpleasant tasks. In other words, it directs you to opt for “immediate mood repair.

Well, if we come to the bottom line of this, we all can come to the same opinion of overcoming procrastination. But as the best among creatures and for possessing the capability of optimizing and utilizing almost everything, we have great advantages to overcome our obstacles. And as a procrastinating human myself, suggestions to overcoming this phenomenon would be difficult but why not be optimistic? Let’s integrate our lifestyle into fragments and go hitting the scenarios we’re given ‘ONE AT A TIME’. Be it small, be it tiny, be it a minute but at least the work is done. Let’s just be optimistic for the time is not for the future; as it never looks back, neither it dreams of the past.

Let’s take a deep breath, think what we’re capable of and hit the fire button to launch the missile to burn all our tiring brains’ procrastinations to ashes. We surely haven’t used even half of our brain’s processor. Let’s not keep it intact.
