From Fast Company:
There are many reasons why you procrastinate. You might find it difficult to face your fears of not doing a specific task well enough. You might be put off by the unpleasant feelings you associate with tackling a specific project. Or you might convince yourself that because you work better under pressure, you might as well wait until the deadline is closer.
But while everyone procrastinates at some level, chronic procrastination can have serious consequences. Not being able to tick something off your to-do list doesn’t always mean it’s the end of the world, but if you consistently fail to meet deadlines, or ask your boss for an extension every single week, they’ll probably hear alarm bells and may even start thinking about disciplinary measures.
