Admit it, we’ve all been there. That project that you haven’t started yet the deadline is looming, that phone call that you need to return but just keep putting off – and let’s not even talk about your neglected intention of exercising at least three times a week.  In an article posted by Heidi Grant Halvorson, a specialist in the field of motivational science, she points out how much less guilt and stress one would feel if one simply got on with the job at hand without procrastinating, not to mention how much happier and more effective we would be. 


Halvorson maintains that you can get over the tendency to procrastinate, simply by using the right strategy. But first – you need to find out why you’re avoiding that task in the first place.
