I decided to talk on procrastination because it’s a stumbling block which cost many people a huge amount of time. Worse; it can leave people demoralized and depressed, which in turn makes it harder to read or write.
Procrastination is simply the act of delaying postponing what is urgent. It is the avoidance of doing a task that needs to be accomplished. It is the practice of doing more pleasurable activities, or carrying out less urgent tasks instead of more urgent ones. You will agree with me that we are often caught in the web of this most time.
Procrastination in large part reflect our perennial struggle with self-control as well as our inability to accurately predict how we’ll fell tomorrow, or the next day not doing what we are suppose to do.
Procrastinators may say they perform better under pressure, but more often than not, that’s their way of putting things off. Procrastinators love planning, quite simply because planning does not involve doing, and doing is the procrastinators kryptonite.

Whenever a procrastinator plan, they like to do it in a vague way that doesn’t consider details or reality closely. Their planning sets them up to fail in the actualization of their plans.
How to stop procrastination.
1. Make the task more achievable.
2. Decide and design your future actions.
3. Make the consequence of procrastination more immediate.
4. Make the rewards of taking action more immediate.
We all have one problem or the other in our life that is begging to be attended to. The solution of some of these can be found in books if we would read a book and stop procrastinating.
The year is gradually drawing to a close, is high time you ask yourselves how many books you have read and how many of the principles learnt have been applied so far. Procrastination can hinder you of both of the above.
Stop saying you will do it and start doing it. The truth is that you can be more better and give better result if you start doing all that you are postponing right now.
Fellow readers, start reading and start writing; Just start.
