Help yourself -Overcome your procrastination

Procrastination is the act of delaying or postponing something. It is often associated with laziness or a lack of motivation, but this is not always the case. Some people procrastinate because they feel overwhelmed or anxious about the task at hand. Others may procrastinate because they are perfectionists and want to make sure that everything is perfect before they start.

Whatever the reason, procrastination can be a major obstacle to success. It can lead to missed deadlines, lower grades, and even job loss.
