Are You a Procrastinator? Check Out Which Type You Are

are you a procrastinator

Be honest, are you a procrastinator?

I think a lot of writers suffer from procrastination.

You too?

Maybe you’ve promised to write something—but only start a day before the deadline.

Or maybe you’ve been planning forever to write a book—but have just got started.

Okay, I admit that I sometimes procrastinate.

Especially with any task connected to taxes…

Can we overcome procrastination?

There’s an interesting new study about how to overcome procrastination.

Researchers at the University of Southern California found that the trick to overcoming procrastination is to think in small units of time.

Apparently, if we think in terms of small units of time, we’re more likely to achieve our goals.

For example, if a deadline is in three days’ time, it’s better to think of it as 72 hours out.

Or, if you have longtime goals, determine the time frame in weeks, instead of years.

But it all depends on what type of procrastinator you are.

Check out the infographic below to see what type YOU are.

You’ll find some valuable suggestions on how to combat your type of procrastination.
