In goal setting, procrastination was mentioned and it was suggested to use it for the unimportant tasks. In a regular day, where does procrastination usually come in? Most of the time, when we procrastinate, the tasks that lay victim to our act are the important ones. Specifically, what are these tasks?
Usually, these are not just important but are also tasks that need to be accomplished right away. For example, if you are in school, the tasks that you are most likely to procrastinate on are your homework, take home exams, and projects. Commonly, the usual scenario is you put off doing it until the last minute and then you end up cramming to accomplish them. You then deliver a hurriedly finished paper that could have been better if only it were given more time. Thus, you only get a so-so grade instead of a supposedly high mark.
