The Prepared Don’t Procrastinate

We often debate the cause of procrastination. While doing so you inevitably ask yourself, “Why am I putting this off?” The most common answer is probably a lack of purpose.

    However, what may really be the problem is a simple lack of planning.

    We know what it is that we want, where it is we want to go, but because we don’t know how to get there and which route to take, we by default procrastinate. Procrastination therefore, is a natural “side effect” of a lack of having executed the necessary preparation and planning.

    And this makes a lot of sense. Why would I postpone finishing something when I have, essentially, already started it by planning?
