There are a number of reasons people procrastinate: Poor Motivation - analyze your reason for doing things. Sometimes "it needs to be done" is not enough. You need to link it in to things you find truly important. Impulsiveness - impulsive people are much more likely to procrasinate and will probably be tempted to more often Easiness - it is often easier ...
