The essence of procrastination is very well
reflected in this quote by Bernard Meltzer:
"Hard work is often the easy work you did
not do at the proper time."
Are you affected?
Have you ever seen your most important tasks
being put off until later and then later and
later, while you are getting busy with many
not so important activities?
Did you hope
that you may have more time and better mood
in the future to start the task and do it
properly? Does an approaching deadline mean
a crisis for you? Do you keep hesitating
every time you make a decision?
If you often see
yourself in such low productivity situations, then there is a
big chance that your life got under control
of the procrastination habit. And those
situations are only the most explicit
What is it?
A basic definition of procrastination is putting off the things that you should be doing now.
This happens with all of us time after time.
Yet, what makes a big difference for your
success is your ability to recognize
procrastination reasons and expressions in their different forms, and
to promptly take them under control, before this
bad habit steals your opportunities, damages your
career and pride, or destroys your relationships.
So why do not you do it now?
