"I'll do it later" seems like a harmless enough statement. The problem is that when later comes, that split-second decision you made to put off something can have lasting negative consequences. Occasional procrastination is usually fairly harmless. But procrastinating on a regular basis—ignoring important responsibilities and creating chaos for yourself and the people who depend on you—can be dangerous business. At a minimum, procrastination inconveniences you and others. At its worst, procrastination takes a serious toll on your finances, career, mental and physical health, relationships, and personal safety. If you've brushed off your procrastination problem as a minor nuisance, a silly habit, or even a charming personality quirk, then this book is your wake-up call.
