I can't agree more - but procrastination is related to impulsiveness and we are creatures of NOW - we are genetically wired to live in the present not to wallow in delayed gratification. It's a nasty habit, but we have to understand it.

Thank you for your answer, but it is a common misconception to think that procrastination is a plight of perfectionists. It is the other way around.
This is still a problem for me more than I care to admit but I'm getting better. You see the reasoning is that if it is not perfect, it is because it is not finished and therefore it couldn't be perfect because it is not completed. Crazy but true
I can say this much - I had a tendency to procrastinate (maybe it was somewhat my personality trait, but not as overpowering as it became now) and I was responsible and capable of doing things, completing them. Then I got sick - everything changed.

Since I cannot promise to deliver a good hub on procrastination (due to my own procrastination!), I can recommend a book - Piers Steel "The Procrastination Equation". I started reading it - it all makes sense!

Democrats and Republicans are just two sides of the same corrupt capitalist coin. And it's sad that very few people in America even notice the exclusion of Third-Party candidates from the Presidential debates; much less outraged by it.
Ladies and gentlemen - you are not alone, it has been studied, there are plenty of us who procrastinate and there are reasons for it - I can't promise I will write on the subject, but I might!
