I'll try again next month =)

What can I say, I've been busy...

Need I mention assignments? Practical? Audition? Transportation? And yet still, the greatest enemy is still myself .

For those who don't know, I have a big problem with procrastination. It means I love to put things off until the last minute [especially important things]. It has been the thorn in my side for as long as I can remember. It sometimes feels that I can't help it. Things just seem to pop up and distract me from the task at hand. Things that are very superficial, and yet, seem significant at that moment. Often, when I find myself running out of time, I realize that there are alot of things that I wasted my time doing, that took the place of the things that are meant to take priority in my life.

So, consequently, I have failed to blog every day of this month. But I see here not a failure, but an opportunity, to share with you something that I have read recently.

Failure is good for you! And here's why..

1. Every failure is an opportunity.
See each failure as an opportunity to do better. The very fact that you have a chance to improve is a blessing in disguise. Don't miss it!

2. Great people throughout history have ALL failed before.
Einstein: Called a retard by his teacher at school. Became Man of the Year, 20th Century.
Edison: Failed at least 1000 times to perfect the incandescent light bulb. Now, we all have lights.
Beethoven: His music teacher once said " as a composer, he is hopeless". Did I mention that he lost his hearing? and yet, he managed to produce great music. - a deaf man composing music, ironic isn't it!

3. The lessons we learn from failure help us to succeed.
We learn the most not from our successes, but from our failures. If we succeed in something, we'll most likely just repeat the same formula, expecting the same great results next time. But if we fail, we try harder to improve, and come up with something better. So in terms of how far forward we move, failure kicks success's butt!!

4. Success after failure is SWEET as. 
nuff said.

I hope that my sharing has encouraged you in some way. I'm gonna try for NabloPloMo again next month. Stay with me, alright? Keep reading, and don't give up on me!! I'll succeed, and beat procrastination one day!!
