Procrastination is that word we use to express the art of putting things off.  But, it goes by many names.  Names like Avoidance Behavior, Resistance, and Taking a Break to name a few.  What is Procrastination and why do we embrace it with such reckless abandon?  Lord Chesterfield said “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today” about Procrastination.  Conversely, Mark Twain said “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.”

What is it that enables us to avoid the important “stuff” we should be doing?  Stuff which might take only moments to do, often with very little effort, and would instantly relieve the pressure building in our brain?  Why do we choose Stress over completing a task?

In this episode, Mordant & McFall explore the different forms Procrastination can take - Avoidance Behavior, Resistance, and the perceived need for Relaxation to name a few.  If you’ve ever tossed your dreams or duty to the wayside, all for the sake of calming the restlessness assailing you, then this is the show for you.  Don’t delay - listen in and learn why “Procrastination is opportunity's assassin” and how you can protect yourself and your dreams from its insidious assaults.
