“According to psychologists, procrastination is the act of wanting to feel good now. Basically, procrastination is the adult version of a three-year-old’s ‘I don’t wanna!” tantrum.

Procrastination can make life miserable. If we put off projects, phone calls, emails, or whatever the task may be, we end up working at breakneck pace in order to complete it at the eleventh hour. It’s unnecessary stress that we bring upon ourselves. …

The research shows that overcoming procrastination comes down to thought control and self-regulation. It’s all about mind management. Realizing that you’re dragging your feet is the first key. Once this realization occurs, you’re ready to play some strategic mind games with yourself.”
