So I just finished the last part of the last episode of “Breaking Bad”. My GOD … Really, my words can’t come close to describing and giving it justice. This series will assuredly go down as one of the greatest of all time. Furthermore I can’t even express how impressed I am of the creator Vince Gilligan for finding the best actors for every single part of the whole story making the best character development I’ve seen in a long long time, if not ever. None of whom I’ve seen or heard of before, may I add. I’m melancholic about the fact that is over… really! If you have not seen it. Do… This is a Masterpiece!
Here is a little introduction:
“Breaking Bad follows the life of Walter White – a high school chemistry teacher in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA – who is thrown a curve ball by fate and is forced to, as the show’s name suggests, break bad. When Walt is diagnosed with terminal cancer, he realizes that he needs to make enough money to ensure that his wife will be able to take care of herself, their handicapped son and their unborn second child when he will not be around to provide – money that cannot be made as a high school teacher. Therefore, he turns to methamphetamine production, in collaboration with Jesse Pinkman, a former high school student of his who he meets again under unlikely circumstances.”
Walter White (Bryan Cranston), Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), Flynn “Walter White Jr” RJ Mitte,
Skyler White (Anna Gunn)Hank Scrader (Dean Norris), Marie Schrader (Betsy Brandt),
Saul Gooman (Bobo Odenkirk), Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito)
Do you procrastinate?
I hate the word Later.
– Can you do your homework?
– Yeah later!
– Can we pay the bills now?
-Can you return the stuff I lent you a year ago?
-Yeah, next time around.
-Can you respond to the e-mail I sent you a week ago?
-Sure, I will.
Does this feel familiar?
You know later always really means another day, month, year… or not doing it at all. The procrastinator do not see the advantages in positive outcome of doing things when they are supposed to: On Time! To delay the process of pain? To drop something for something else more comfortable? To accumulate things…until later, later, LATER! We all know the task, problem, payment, debts or responsibility vanish … and the pleasure that derives from delaying or putting things off itself just brings pain and problems in the long run. So why postpone? Does it help? Nooo, it rarely does. It adds up pressure. You piss people off, piss yourself off and it builds up guilt. The incomplete work remains. So why wait until the last minute? Why cause others and yourself so much unnecessary anxiety and stress? Disorganized, lazy or too optimistic? I see the same patterns in the same people and it stresses me out…because it involves me, ruins my schedule and it´s just plainly negative behaviour. I’m the opposite and glad to be. I’m not saying I’m a better person… but I’m just organized and put a lot of value in keeping deadlines and promises that I make to others and myself! I feel the satisfaction of having finished the work is a very delightful and fair feeling.
Anyway, I just feel that it´s really a self-sabotaging behaviour, and I also think a lot of people are deceiving themselves when they think that theyhave good reasons for delaying getting on with what they have to do. The procrastinators are experts on the “victim” mindset. They waste their own time and other people’s valuable time. The problem will not vanish!! Take care of it NOW if there is no reason stopping you to do so. Really… Life is just too short. Today is the Day, not later, not tomorrow… at least for a lot of things that can be done ; ) So Yeah… Not later – NOW!
