Are there a tonne of things that you know you should do today, that you also know you'll put off until tomorrow?
If the answer is yes, you're not alone. According to a study out today, the average person wastes 69 minutes a day procrastinating, which adds up to 3 years over a lifetime. Women are more likely to be guilty of putting things off than men. However, we apparently begin to kick the habit as we grow older.
But it's not all bad news. Writing in The Times, Frank Partnoy, author of Wait: The Useful Art of Procrastination, reckons that there can be real benefits to putting things off. He says, 'Not every e-mail requires an immediate response and not every closet has to be cleaned every day.'
So do you think you should always try and avoid procrastinating? Is it bad for you? Are YOU a procrastinator? What do you always find yourself putting off?
