Procrastination

This, and the previous post were written by my younger brother.

It is undeniable fact that goals set through motivation and mental strength are the driving forces of humanity. A world lacking a driving force pushing itself to the next objective is a world that lacks expansion. It’s a world standing still. No improvement, no progress, nothing. Especially in today’s world where we are using fundamental resources necessary to survive are used faster than they are replenished. It is unsettling to me that through millions of years of evolution and cognitive growth that the human trait of procrastination has not been weeded out. I believe for the point I am trying to make it is acceptable for me to associate motivation with work and procrastination with an absence of work. Understandably, for most people, not doing work severely trumps doing work. I have not poured through the data myself, but I suppose it’s fair of me to come to this conclusion without doing considerable research. So for the expansion of humanity, I have come to question why, if motivation and the process of doing work enhances civilization, still is outweighed by the activity of procrastination. At some point it seems like the lazy minding individuals would be somehow stripped from the gene pool effectively eliminating that restricting characteristic. Maybe someday it will be, successfully pushing humanity into a frenzy of growth and development.
