The Cost of Procrastination

Procrastination feels good for a while, but when the task returns, it comes with a delayed and enhanced sense of guilt and unhealthy urgency. Waiting until you absolutely *have* to get something done actually handicaps you. You give up the flexibility to work when inspiration is there.

You give up the ability to field emergency client needs when they arise.

You move every other priority in your life down a notch to make room for it, bumping things like family and your health out of positions they should never give up.

Procrastinating delays what needs done, but at a price. Doing your job at a steady, less-than-urgent pace, however, keeps your life in balance and equips you for growth.
