Procrastination Self Test

Quiz Image

I am sure you will agree with me that we all encounter postponements that keep us from doing what is critical for our success. We cannot always control what happens to us but we can always exercise control over how it will impact us. We do not have to let delays defeat us. We don't have to give into these energy suckers and become a victim of procrastination. Why should we leave ourselves at the mercy of "˜The Guilt of the Incomplete'? But first the question arises, why do we do that?

FROM INACTION TO ACTION After acquiring all the tools, techniques and strategies, why do people not put into use what they know? Why do people choose inaction instead of taking action? We have identified some psychological fears. These fears suppress your inventiveness; your talents and resources remain hidden, undeveloped and untapped that is the whole idea behind this quiz.
