A: What makes procrastination so difficult is that most of us would rather do nothing than work. NOTHING! Now add in cat videos on YouTube, checking Groupon deals in email, and a myriad of other social media options and it seems like all hope is lost. But, the important thing to remember is that procrastination is a habit, and habits are difficult yet very possible to change, and all change begins from within. Make the commitment to yourself to improve your life, and make small adjustments daily and good things will follow. Why not start today? 😉
Hello. My name is Jay-Ram (Jay-ROM) and I'm an Indian-American who's been a pharmaceutical chemist and writer for many years. My fascination with science began as a nine year-old watching shows like "Bill-Nye The Science Guy" and "The Magic School Bus." Having a scientifically inclined thinking allows me to unconventional solutions to problems, which allowed me to help friends and colleagues. I believe that the spirit of science is to find truth and help others; as the great scientist and philosopher Carl Sagan once said, “Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality.”

Also, I think people procrastinate because they’re overwhelmed by the huge project looming overhead! A good tactic is to break it down into small tasks and make a checklist: say I do this ONE thing this hour, and then I can goof around for another hour, then onto the next small thing! Remember, when it comes to getting things done something is better than absolutely nothing! Progress, even in baby steps, feels good and motivates you to do more!
Solid advice! Thank you!
Great thoughts, thanks for sharing.
