Do you struggle with procrastination? If you are like the majority of people, the answer is probably yes!
We all find that we put off doing some activities. Whether they are things we find difficult, boring, we don’t like or ironically contribute to our success.
Procrastination can make us feel frustrated and demotivated. It can send us into a spiral of inaction and negativity which can result in us not achieving our goals within the timeframe, or at all. It negatively effects our self esteem and impacts our productivity at work.
