‘Why put off until tomorrow what you can put off until the day after?’ is, of course, the old joke about procrastination. Logically, why would people want to keep things on their to do list until tomorrow (or the day after) when they can get them out of their way today? But procrastination isn’t about logic. It’s partly about habit and partly about emotions. Some people procrastinate because that’s what they have got used to; it has become their norm. Other people put things off because of anxiety or other feelings that get in the way of their efficiency and effectiveness. For very many people it is both; it is a combination of habit and emotion.
But those habits and those emotions come at a high price, as procrastination – very common though it may be – causes significant problems. It distorts our priorities; it creates unnecessary delays; it can lower morale and reduce our credibility in the eyes of other people who come to see us as unreliable.
This guide offers the answer. It looks at some of the main reasons why procrastination happens and provides some important and helpful guidance on what we can do to avoid this modern plague. If you are prone to procrastination, this e-book is for you. You’d better act now before you get bogged down in other issues. So don’t procrastinate! Buy it now!
