What is procrastination
Procrastination is when you postpone doing a task or project until tomorrow or the day afterwards. I mentioned in my book “the ultimate guide to achieve your goals“ that you have to realize when you procrastinate, you are accomplish nothing and your day is basically wasted.
I’m sure you know many people that spend 2 hours a day watching television instead of finishing the task and the work that they need to accomplish.
Are you a procrastinator?
To determine whether you are a procrastinator or not, ask yourself the following questions, which determine the seriousness of this disease called procrastination.
1. Am I one of the those people who always come up with excuses to postpone my work?
2. Do I do whatever it takes to accomplish your work and projects on time?
If you answered “yes” to most of these questions, then you have to realize that you are a procrastinator and need to work on overcoming procrastination.
3. Ask yourself, what are the problems that could happen if I procrastinate? Make a list and write down the answers.
The best way to deal with the tasks that you tend to procrastinate is to always start working on them immediately. Always remember what Napoleon Hill says, “Procrastination is the bad habit of putting off until the day after tomorrow what should have been done the day before yesterday.”
