PROCRASTINATION, your enemy towards success achievement

What is procrastination?

In psychology, procrastination refers to the act of replacing high-priority actions with tasks of low-priority, and thus putting off important tasks to a later time. Psychologists often cite such behavior as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision.

Procrastination may result in stress, a sense of guilt and crisis, severe loss of personal productivity, as well as social disapproval for not meeting responsibilities or commitments. These feelings combined may promote further procrastination. While it is regarded as normal for people to procrastinate to some degree, it becomes a problem when it impedes normal functioning.

In the following video, John Assaraf tells how to over come procrastination.

I have taken down notes and here are 3 things to remember:

PROCRASTINATION is caused by insecurity.

It is not the smartest people who become very successful but those who procrastinate less.

This habit will turn you into an ACTION person increasing your efficiency everyday.
