PROCRASTINATION

Katy Guevara y Martin Ramirez

The Problem

Procrastinators delay doing tasks that they know must do by doing other things in order to avoid the important tasks. They often complete the task only when there is no more time left to put the task off.

How It Affects People

Procrastination is a behavior that leads to stress; plans and wishes fail at a point where fulfillment should have been achieved. Procrastination threatens happiness. It can cause careers to crash, goals, health, and productivity to fail.

Four Solutions

  1. Make a "TO DO" list.
  2. Establish a routine.
  3. Reward yourself.
  4. Break larger tasks into smaller units.
