If yes Congratulations, you are a Procrastinator! don't worry you are not alone, I'm also writing this blog after procrastination got hit me back.

Procrastination is a global thing that may affect everyone from students to professionals, you and me, and everyone in general.

  •  To get an Adrenaline-rush: it is found in facts that some people do procrastinate to get an adrenaline rush when the tasks are completed on time, it's strange that they even get high doing so.

  • Spiritless or lack of Motivation: low self-confidence and less motivation probably make the individuals do the tasks in less time or it may create a negligent attitude towards the tasks these people think they can't do the task and they are not fit in for the tasks.
