“Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.”

As we all know, most people procrastinate because it offers them a type of comfort and some relief from having to do an unpleasant task or something that they do not want to do.  We have all had these "unpleasant tasks" in our lives and we all tend to procrastinate from time to time, as well.  I was surprised to learn that there is a such person that is called a "Chronic Procrastinator."  Obviously, this is someone who puts off things and has done so for many years.  It is difficult to change someone like this because they have their ways of doing things and have no desire to do something because it is out of their control.  It is possible to stop procrastinating, even though we may not see it as a problem- like chronic procrastination, it can turn into one.  Procrastinating is a behavioral problem and if we can change those behaviors, then we will  never have to worry about procrastination as becoming a problem.
