If you never start, you’ll never have a chance to fail. But you’ll never have a chance to succeed, either.

Have a look at this infographic, generated by U.K.-based infographic design company NeoMam Studios on behalf of the writing services firm Essay.Expert, for 15 techniques to fight your tendency to procrastinate.
