30 years ago, just 5 percent of Americans were self-described “chronic procrastinators”; today that number is up to 26 percent.
Blame technology (again). Men procrastinate more than women; the young procrastinate more than the old.
And what does all that procrastination get procrastinators? Nothing but trouble.
“Procrastinators tend to be more miserable, less wealthy, and less healthy than those people who don’t dilly-dally,” says psychologist Piers Steel.
