Procrastination Can Ruin Your Career

1751_tiredI am sure you remember that old saying “don’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today”?  For some people putting things off until tomorrow, the next day or the next is just a way of life, personally and professionally.

Procrastination is one of the most crippling diseases of productivity and it can ruin your career.  Many people do not even know why they procrastinate or will even recognize that they do it, even when co-workers or their boss bring it up to them.

Usually, they have plenty of excuses as to why they have not completed their assignments, or goals and what is amazing is they are the only one who really believe it.

Coming to grips with the fact that you do procrastinate is the first step to being able to seek help to stop it.  Being a procrastinator can eventually cause you to lose your job, unless you are the business owner. If that is the case then it is probably a good guess that your business is not running efficiently or becoming as successful as it could if you did not procrastinate.

Either way if you are an employee or a business owner you need help in breaking the procrastination habit before it breaks you and leads you down the path of a totally dysfunctional life at home and in the workforce.

The link below is to a great tool for those who procrastinate by “Mind Tools” that can help you get started in improving your life and start on a path of doing today what needs to be done.  The outline of the booklet is an easy one to understand and begin your journey to becoming an non-procrastinator.

Best wishes for your success in taking baby steps to overcome procrastination, your life will be much different and the people you work with will be much happier and more productive because you are.
