Are you frequently putting things off until the last minute? You may be a procrastinator. This sort of behavior is frequently associated with college students -- though many older adults end up regularly putting things off, as well. 

For Entrepreneur Network partner Jeff Rose, procrastination prevents productivity and living life to the fullest. For Rose, taking steps to set a time to start a task and the amount you want to finish is a great start. This decision is equal to showing commitment -- a great start of moving away from procrastination.

Furthermore, when you add things to your calendar and make an effort towards something on a frequent basis, this can not only help you with putting things off but also add to your capabilities. Acquiring new skills and getting used to exercising these skills is a step toward no longer being afraid to start a new project. Eventually, that big project simply becomes part of your daily life.
