Why do we procrastinate?
Even though we know it is against our best interests? How can we overcome it, preferably without hating ourselves or the techniques we use in the process? About 95% of people admit to putting off work, according to Piers Steel, author of The Procrastination Equation. On a neurological level, procrastination is not the slightest bit logical — it is the result of the emotional part of our brain, our limbic system, forcing the hand of the reasonable, rational part of our brain, our prefrontal cortex. The logical part of our brain surrenders the moment we choose social media over work, or decide to binge-watch another episode of our favourite series.
But there are ways to give the logical side of our brain the upper hand. The employees will learn about these techniques and other useful information in combating procrastination.
