Procrastination is like a credit card: It’s a lot of fun until you get the bill
– Christopher Parker
_ EAT-IN _
Procrastination is a disease we all must deliberate about in order not to be infected by it. People who suffer from this disease are like clouds – difficult to catch and pin down. They can hardly sit behind their desks for a reasonable length of time to accomplish any tasks and usually “post-date” activities to be done.
The “this can wait” syndrome can be prevented by developing a plan of work and being disciplined to get through it. Especially at a time like this – when we are all required to work from home, you must be true to yourself and ask yourself the following questions:
– Am I truly working from home?
– Are there things I can do now to reduce my backlog once I resume back to work?
– Have I been productive enough during this time?

The antidote to procrastination is to ACT (Action Changes Things)
