Are you a chronic procrastinator?
I can hardly think of another “bad” habit that will take such a toll on your productivity and forward motion in your career over the years.
Whether you are procrastinating finishing a project or report, procrastinating over preparing a presentation, procrastinating on asking for a raise or a promotion, procrastinating on looking for a new job when the one you’re in clearly isn’t right, or procrastinating on talking to that direct hire who just isn’t fulfilling your expectations — well, you get the picture — none of these are good scenarios that inspire greatness or thoughts of leadership and success.
In a very real sense, procrastination drags your life to a near halt. If you have it in one area of life, it’s likely you also have it in many others.
