What’s it called? That thing that you do when faced with a task that you really don’t want to do. When you really need to have that serious talk with a friend, but you put it off. You want to begin that exercise program, begin that novel, go on a cruise, visit another country, or begin working towards that new career you’ve always wanted. You always say, “I’ll do it tomorrow.” What is the word for it? That’s right, procrastination. Procrastination must be the simplest and most popular form of self-sabotage known to man. It keeps us from becoming what we most want to be and, if you think about it, it poisons our dreams.
In this episode, Mordant & McFall tackle a subject we would all like to put off until another day. With the help of the “Success Freaks” segment, discover why you put some things off as well as ways to overcome these self-imposed procrastinating tendencies.
