Dealing With Procrastination Before It Ruins Your Career

Saturday, September 26, 2009 | comments

Whenever something needs to be done then the best time to do it is immediately. By postponing you are bound not to accomplish much since you will never run short of tasks that require your attention. In addition, when things to do pile up, it usually results to confusion.

Therefore, do not shelve duties that need attention today, claiming that you will focus on them tomorrow since it may be too late by then. Procrastination can easily ruin your career, for example, at your place of work you are expected to perform your duties diligently and also finish on time without being pushed to do so though sometimes these tasks may be tedious.

When you procrastinate then your performance at work will definitely be below par and as a result your employer will always be unsatisfied with your performance. I therefore do not need to inform you that your boss will find it hard to recommend you for a promotion.

The time to deal with procrastination is now because if you do not then you are in the process of ruining your career. Your boss may just start by verbally reprimanding you but sooner or later he may get tired. I love the way William James puts it when he says “Nothing is as fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task”.

I hope now you have resolved to always attend to your duties on time. It would even help to report early at work and attend to anything that is pending. Avoid postponing what can be attended to today; it would really help if you prioritize your duties. “There are a million ways to lose a work day, but not even a single way to get one back”. Tom Demarco.
