How to stop procrastinating

Do you leave everything to the last minute and work right up to the deadline?

Do you always have time to paint your nails, make a snack or take a snooze, but never to finish that job application or make that long-overdue phone call to your mother-in-law?

Yes? Then you are a procrastinator...
