Procrastination is like a credit card: it’s a lot of fun until you get the bill.

Christopher Parker

I am not sure if I agree with this statement: my experience has taught me that procrastination is not only ‘fun’ but also gives you a ‘feeling of guilt and discontentment’. Maybe that is the bill Parker is talking about. I have the idea I get the bill already before the fun starts.

Do you recognise it: procrastination? Marieke sent me a couple of blogs. One explains why we procrastinate, the other what you can do about it and the third how the Eisenhowermatrix can really help you.

If you want to hear a story of monkeys and panic monsters, don’t miss out on these blogs.

Don’t fancy reading? The writer also had a TED Talk about the same subject, I shared it with you once before.
