AAAh! Procrastination.  There's a word that most people can relate to at some point in their lives.   Who are the worst procrastinators, men or women?  I guess it depends on whom you talk to, question is does it really matter? From personal experience, procrastination can be your greatest enemy when you allow it to stop you from making immediate decisions about important issues.  Yet, it can also be a friend when postponing decision-making can work in your favor and allow you to take some time to rethink your strategy where making final decisions are concerned.  

However, procrastination can also truly be the death of you.  When I decided to research the definition of procrastination, its definition in the online website of "Wikipedia" is the one that stuck out the most for me because it gives a closer definition to what I have experienced due to my procrastination, on all levels.

According to Wikipedia.org, procrastination: "is a type of behavior which is characterized by deferment of actions or tasks to a later time. Psychologists often cite procrastination as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision. [1]
For an individual, procrastination may result in stress, a sense of guilt, the loss of personal productivity, the creation of crisis and the disapproval of others for not fulfilling one’s responsibilities or commitments." [Online] at this website  -

Before curing myself of this problem, I said many times to myself "why didn't you just do this or take care of this right away, you would have prevented so much stress and guilt free and worry free" if that's possible, yet because it is almost like an addiction of sorts, I kept on doing it over and over again until finally the stress factor got so bad that I was forced to change and say "enough."  Do this and do that when it needs to be done and get it over with.  Consequences will come about no matter what, so why not deal with it now then deal with it tomorrow or next week or next month or even next year.

Procrastinators stand up and know that whatever it is that you're putting off can be done today.  Maybe even tomorrow but don't put it off until next week or next month or next year, because the anxiety of it all will leave you feeling anxious and weary, unless it's that thick, rich piece of decadent chocolate cake that you're been dying to eat for the past week, maybe then procrastination would be your best bet.

Can you relate?
