I bought a book on procrastination - Never got around to reading it.

Each of us from time to time comes across things that we don’t want to do. For example, cleaning the house or visiting a doctor for a routine check-up. People often postpone unpleasant but necessary things “for later”. And such procrastination often becomes a habit.

This is by no means a new problem. Even ancient philosophers paid a lot of attention to it. The word procrastination first appeared in the Oxford dictionary in 1548. They thought of the word a few decades before - it just took a while to get around to adding it! 

Dealing with Procrastination

It's the end of the semester and you have a paper due in two days. You've been meaning to start it for weeks, but somehow keep finding other things to do. If this sounds familiar, you're not alone. Procrastination is a common problem, but there are ways to avoid it.

Start by identifying why you're procrastinating. Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you not know where to start? Once you know the reason, you can take steps to fix it.

If you're feeling overwhelmed, break the task down into smaller pieces. Write a list of everything that needs to be done and then tackle one thing at a time. You'll feel more accomplished and less stressed as you check items off your list.

Not knowing where to start is another common issue. Again, make a list of what needs to be done.
