"This software rocks golden. Have been looking for this thingy a long time now. My search is over."

" Although I use Microsoft Outlook I found that the task tracking in your software has a better view and layout than Outlook. I like the way that icons can be used for different categories, and the different colours that are used in the main task list make it easier to get an overall picture of outstanding issues."

Beat procrastination. How to avoid procrastination and laziness

What Is Procrastination?

Procrastination is a bad habit of putting away things that you should do now or that should be done already. It happens with all of us from time to time. But if it happens too often, procrastination and laziness can destroy your career and steal your good chances that come into your life. So it’s very important to recognize procrastination in its various symptoms and get rid of this bad habit as soon as possible.

How To Recognize Procrastination

  • If your most important tasks are put away until later;
  • if you exceed time limits or perform your tasks at the last moments;
  • if you wait for another time or a special mood to start the task;
  • if you hesitate when making decisions;

then there is a big chance that you are affected by procrastination habit.

First of all it means that your time management skills and self-discipline are not on the proper level. If you revise your workflow organization, you may notice that:

  • Your goals are not clear enough
  • Your tasks and standards for outcomes are ambiguous
  • You feel that the tasks are imposed on you from outside
  • You underestimate the difficulty of the tasks and time required to complete them
