      Loved the article.

      I’ve been guilty of this topic many times. And have always looked for advice on “the cure”.

      One thing I noticed the site hosting this piece is notorious for its click bait side bars. Felt my eyes floating to those while reading , which in a way was enforcing the gist of it all.

      Hey Mary,

      Everyone procrastinates at some time in their life. I have learned that there are many reason why I and others, procrastinate and understanding these reasons has given me a new perspective on how to put an end to procrastination. Complex projects often seem daunting and cause many people to procrastinate.

      When faced with a project that seems overwhelming in its complexity it is advisable to break the project down into smaller components and tackle each component individually.

      The inability to make decisions also contributes to procrastination. Many people simply spend too much time trying to make decisions about their projects. Eventually, thanks for sharing your experience with us.

      With best wishes,

      Amar kumar

      I agree with Professor Tim Pychyl that procrastination can affect the grades. I used to order papers from writing services when I studied at college. I picked one based on best essay writing services review and ordered. My professors were satisfied but it affected my knowledge. And when I came to my job I had to study more things, therefore I spend more time. I advise students not to spend time on partying. Learn, so you can rest at nights after work.
