The cost of procrastination is just too high that we all need to work on making sure we counter it. It has been noted that 50% of the time we are online we are postponing issues. Maybe you have been intending to read your emails but two days later you still have not done it. It could also be that you are delaying to start that small online business but you claim that you are too overwhelmed with employment.
To achieve success in life and make money you need not only to make decisions but also follow up and implement them, procrastination could easily mean you loss on a few dollars. Delaying can be the difference between making your first million in a short time and making money no at all. There are sure issues that come up in our pursuit of success, but we should not allow them to hold us back.
Procrastination results in the wastage of time and we all know that time is money. The main problem of postponing is that it brings about guilt and thus results to low self esteem. People who end up being obese, impulsive gamblers or land in huge debts are those that keep postponing taking action to change their lives.
As much as there is no tangible answer to why someone becomes a constant procrastinator, we should work towards self motivation in order to overcome the habit. Self regulation is the answer; whenever you set to do something make sure you also take steps to achieve it by having deadlines. Be confident of yourself in whatever you do and you will avoid procrastination.
