Psychologists on Why You Procrastinate; and How to Stop!- Time Magazine
From time to time, everybody leaves a task lingering on their to-do list for a few hours -- or days, or weeks -- too long. Procrastination is a normal, near-universal phenomenon -- which makes it all the more important to understand why it strikes and what to do about it. "Procrastination is not just avoiding or delaying a task," says David Ballard, head of the American Psychological Association's Center for Organizational Excellence. "It also has to include an aspect that's counterproductive, irrational or unnecessary."
