Procrastination. We all do it. Put things off until later. Then later, we realize just how many things we’ve been putting off and just how big that “to do list” has become. Sound even remotely familiar? Well, today’s the day to quit procrastinating and take control of your life again.
Why do we procrastinate?
We procrastinate when tasks come up that we:
- don’t enjoy,
- find complicated,
- aren’t very good at,
- think will take a long time,
- or, my personal favorite, just don’t feel like doing right now.
That’s right, I, Susan Baroncini-Moe, Guinness World Records titleholder and author with a massive 96% average productivity rate, have been known to procrastinate. And it’s almost always because “I don’t wanna right now.”
