Procrastination - The Thief your Time

Procrastination is the act of delaying or putting off tasks until the last minute. 

Why does it happen?

Either the task is boring or very difficult or you are just busy with something else.

The Procrastination Cycle

You decide some tasks for the day - You get distracted- You put off some tasks for later - You promise to do them tomorrow - That tomorrow never comes - You realize that you have wasted your time - You regret - You are sad the whole day thinking about it - You waste the whole day mourning your wasted time - You realize you have wasted another day - And it goes on forever
