Are You Just Behind Or Could It Be Procrastination
Are you constantly behind on your work or projects? Do you have a messy desk with several little stacks on it? Is there never enough time to finish all you have to get done? If the answer is yes, you could be suffering from procrastination.
I am sure you remember that old saying “don’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today”? For some people putting things off until tomorrow, the next day or the next is just a way of life, personally and professionally.
Procrastination is a crippling disease. If you are not productive at work it can ruin your career. Many people do not even know why they procrastinate or will even recognize that they do it, even when co-workers or their boss brings it up to them.
Usually, they have plenty of excuses as to why they have not completed their assignments, or goals and what is amazing is they are the only one who really believes it.
Coming to grips with the fact that you do procrastinate is the first step to being able to seek help to stop it. Being a procrastinator can eventually cause you to lose your job, unless you are the business owner. If that is the case then it is probably a good guess that your business is not running efficiently or becoming as successful as it could if you did not procrastinate.
Either way if you are an employee or a business owner you need help in breaking the procrastination habit before it breaks you and leads you down the path of a totally dysfunctional life at home and in the workforce.
The link below is to a great article by Psychology Today. An interesting fact about people who suffer from procrastination is that they are not born that way. Procrastination is learned, it is difficult, but if one wants to stop, there is something you can do.
There is no magic wand to wave to overcome procrastination, but if you begin to take small steps your life will be much different and the people you work with will be much happier and more productive because you are.
