Why should you stop procrastinating? Because procrastination will cost you money and damage your reputation. Think I’m exaggerating? Ever put off getting gas and have to stop at the most expensive gas station? Ever hit the snooze button so many times you’re late for work? Exactly.
Five bucks says you’re procrastinating right now while reading about procrastination. What’s not getting done? Housecleaning, book reading, bill paying? Believe me…I can think of a million other things I’d rather do than something I don’t want to do!
What I know about myself is that the number one reason I procrastinate is not knowing how to do something. I will find forty non-important items to check off my list and call it a day.
Why do you procrastinate? Are you a perfectionist? Unmotivated? Whatever the reason, it’s time to change that nasty little habit…today…not tomorrow.
