What my embarrassing day taught me.

The Faces of Procrastination

1. The motivation-seeker

“Time you enjoy wasting is time not wasted.”

2. The procrastinating event organizer

3. The plain lazy ones

4. The easily distracted

But now that procrastination lives in my system, I’m dreading it to the core.

What causes severe procrastination?

1. Interest hopping

2. Fear of failing

3. Inability to take on obstacles

How do we overcome procrastination in life?

1. Set deadlines.

2. Shrug off opinions.

3. Honor a downtime.
