Procrastination is defined as putting off or delaying something until another day or time. I think we have all experienced procrastination in our lives at some point or another; whether we are feeling overwhelmed, time-crunched, frustrated, or bored, I don’t believe any of us are immune to it.

The difference is in how we handle procrastination when it does happen. Recognizing the pattern of occurrence and activating some clear strategies can help you get back on track to getting things done when it matters most.  Read more here

    I struggle with procrastination on a daily basis! Especially now that I work from home. I’ve learned that setting deadlines for myself really helps me to stay on track, and more focused with my work!

    I am the queen of procrastination, but I can actually say I have already eaten the frog this morning. It is 9:00 am and I have already posted my monthly menu planner worksheet that I said I would do later this week and I did 20 minutes on the elliptical. So, I’m working on the whole procrastination thing slowly.

    Oooh yeah, I procrastinate quite a bit. I’m procrastinating right now (should be studying!).

    Too funny! I actually typed this comment around noon, typing on my laptop while sitting in the car waiting for my hubby to get out of classes. Apparently the computer read my comment, and said “I’ll force you to not procrastinate!” because it ran out of battery before I could hit submit. Yep, I did indeed get my studying done. :P

    Yes, all of us have encountered this. To be be frankly honest, I do it all the time and it caused me to put more time and effort to my work so that it would look like a detailed output. It is hard when you start to procrastinate, you feel like you can do anything at another time, but trust me. You just can’t. =)
