Time is money, and when we put those pesky, boring and yet important things off at work or in life, as we know, it
can eventually cost us big time (think: that report that needs to be filed to the accounting department; your kid's health form that you need to fill out and send to their day camp).
Fortunately, the Washington Post had a meaty article yesterday about procrastination, and how we can strive to keep ourselves from putting things off.
