Why do now what you can do later?

Many of us are known for procrastinating, or putting off tasks that we just can't deal with right now. It seems harmless at the time, but one study found that procrastination makes us poorer, fatter and unhealthier.

According to MSNBC, there are a few reasons why some of us just can't seem to get through our to-do list:

All-or-nothing thinking: You feel like you have to do it all now rather than in little steps.

Perfectionism: You're afraid that you'll finish a project and it won't be good.

Learned it from family: Your parents procrastinated, or maybe you rebelled against a stern, demanding dad.

It's just your personality: If you are impulsive or have ADD, it's harder to sit down and pay attention to the task at hand.

Do you have any of these traits?

    Its apart of life. We tend to stray away from difficult or stressful things until doing it is inevitable. No way to fix it, its just how we function.

    Been procrastinating in school since I was in 6th grade, can't help it lol, I know it's a bad habit, but it hasn't failed me yet. I've procrastinated every writing assignment since then, and 90% of the time, I get an A. I'm usually the person up at 11pm finishing my essay.
