Are you a Procrastinator?

You have never paid your bills on time, you’ve never got the concert tickets before they ran out of sale, you’re never been on time for social gatherings, you miss the doctor’s appointments because can never start on time from home or you always end up looking into your fridge with nothing inside it because you never stocked it up. If you do all these things, you’re a procrastinator. And here are further more signs of procrastination. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Living Deadline to Deadline

It is good thing to not hurry and take it slow. However, it’s different altogether when you wait until the very last minute. Whenever procrastinators face a deadline, they react only at the last minute. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Never Finish on Time

Irrespective of the importance of the tasks, delaying finishing things up is a mark of a genius procrastinator. This is not an issue of time management, but chronic procrastination. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Have a Tough Time to Get Started

If you are one of those who find it difficult to get started with things (particularly with things that you don't enjoy doing), it is one of the signs of procrastination. Even if they get started, they lose interest and end up not finishing the task (Image source:Gettyimages)

Always have an Excuse

“It can wait another day”, “let me finish this first” or “I have to do more research before taking this up” is plain procrastination. You will always have an excuse to wait and do the important thing you should be doing on priority later when it is not of any use. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Postponing Date or Time

Holding off from doing something can be okay, but you’re a procrastinator if you do it repeatedly. You make plans, postpone them and always find yourself making plans for a later date. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Not finding the “Right” Moment

Procrastinators wait all day for the ‘right’ moment and sometimes spend the entire day waiting. They’ll always tell you that they are not able to find the right moment because the ambiance is not right or there are distractions. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Scrolling all Day for Updates

Even at night when nobody is going to share a ground-breaking status, a procrastinator scrolls up and down for Facebook updates. Procrastinators are never disconnected from the world, whether at work or when doing something important. (Image source:Gettyimages)
