2. Let’s procrastinate


So now it’s time to procrastinate. We’re all going to die sometime, so why does it have to be today? You’re in control so you can take all the time you want.

Even people on death row get some time before the execution takes place. I think you at least deserve that too. Why not “live a little” before you die?

Really what I’m asking for you to quiet the urgency.

What have you learned to use in the past to delay gratification? How you get yourself to wait or be patient?
