Congratulations on being a member of the most popular club in the world. You’re a procrastinator, putting off for tomorrow what should be done today. You are not alone. At some point, everyone joins.
September 6 is Fight Procrastination Day and it’s specially brought to you by the naggers in your life that want you to get out of the club and fight it for just one day.
If your Christmas tree is still up or your attic is bulging with twenty years of junk or the fines on that library book have accrued into triple-digits, you are a champion procrastinator.
Our tendencies to “put things off” began during childhood, from putting off cleaning our rooms to putting off writing book reports. In college, parties out ranked completing term papers.
As adults, we don’t rise and shine when the alarm tells us. We’re late to work and piles get relegated under more piles. At home, tools needed to repair the drain are buried under piles of junk in the garage.
To celebrate Fight Procrastination Day make a firm decision to finish those tasks. Now go mark your calendar. Write it down, right now. Oh, wait! That pen you’re looking for is buried under a pile on your desk.
