Every wonder why you procrastinate?
Oh, you thought it was just you? Nope, not at all!
The truth is, procrastination has been around for centuries. In fact, way back in 700 BC, the ancient Greek poet Hesiod put it this way: “The man who procrastinates struggles with ruin.”
His point, dramatic as it may be, was that those who procrastinate are in effect destroying themselves (and their lives) in the process. Whatever the reasons, the difference between “later” and “too late” can have a direct impact on your life.
Now, bringing this back to the 21st century, if you’ve ever delayed in getting anything done, you’ll probably agree that there is some truth in this statement even today.
Unfortunately, for a long-time procrastinator, pointing that out is not very helpful. And getting a few tips on how to stop putting things off is not going to make much of a difference, either.
If that were enough, there would be hardly any procrastinators left on the planet, and that clearly doesn’t seem to be the case — even if things seem to get better as we grow older.
