Are you a procrastinator, always putting things off until the very last second? Most of us are fairly good at procrastination. It is part of our nature.

As human beings we have the unique talent of being able to procrastinate. We put things off, things we know we should be doing, to first handle those things that are squeaking the loudest.

Our procrastination comes from a place of: “I don’t know if I can do that”; “I don’t want to do that”; “I don’t like doing that”; or “I’ll get to it.” And because procrastination is a part of who we are as human beings (we like being in our comfort zones), we have to put systems of accountability in place to help manage our procrastinating ways.
