Are you a habitual dawdler? Do you put off important tasks until the last minute? Maybe it’s how you feel – rather than how well organised you are – that’s behind your tendency to procrastinate, writes Sam Kemmis for Fast Company.
Latest psychological studies conclude that it’s more likely to be your mood rather than your lack of willpower or poor time management that stops you getting on with work you know must be completed.
Kemmis, himself a serial procrastinator, welcomed reports that tell him he isn’t simply “lazy, unmotivated or distracted”. Now he has examined their theories to try and pin down the actual issue and find potential solutions.
