On Euphemisms, Part II: Anxiety & Procrastination


Doing away with euphemisms can help one to be honest with oneself, and perhaps tackle the actual problem at hand more directly.

Anxiety and procrastination have got to be two of the common forces that take away from productivity, yet the labeling suggests some level of self-importance, as if anxiety is associated with part of the process for preparation, and procrastination is associated with letting your thoughts gel in your head. But these are euphemisms.

Let’s be honest with ourselves: anxiety is not preparation, and procrastination is not thinking.
