Do you struggle to find enough time for work, your loved ones and for your own hobbies and passions? If the answer is yes, procrastination may be the culprit.
Procrastination is the time taken between deciding to do something and actually doing it.
It can sometimes be beneficial to pause before starting a task to think things through, but it can also be a way of putting off a necessary task that you don’t want to do. Eventually this can have a big impact on both your time management and your energy levels. And this can throw your work-life integration off balance.
Here are a few tips to help you beat your procrastination habits…
