  5. I’m trying to not be lazy and procrastinate. Sometimes though, it takes over but I always end up getting it done. I also sometimes procrastinate my procrastination. I’ll start working on one thing, then move on to something else so I don’t have to do that first thing for a while. Anyone else do that?

  28. I am always working on something. It’s just the fact of getting it all done doesn’t always happen. Old age is creeping in on me. So I just try to make the best of everything that I can.

  29. Another reason why some people choose to procrastinate is when they see all the negatives first. It’s hard to this because of this or I don’t today is the right timing, etc.

  30. I need to use my special talent and skills in seeing the big picture, being organized, and being customer-centric to focus on myself, love myself, believe in myself, and take action now to realize my dream. Thank you for your insightful ideas for overcoming procrastination.
