Everyone procrastinates, but not everyone is a procrastinator. According to psychologist Adam Grant , moderate procrastination can help give your brain time to mull over a task or problem, and create space for greater creativity and innovative ideas. This, he believes, is the primary work zone of innovators and original thinkers. For example, studies show that approximately 80%–95% of college students engage in procrastination to some degree, approximately 75% consider themselves to be procrastinators, and approximately 50% say that they procrastinate in a consistent and problematic manner. Post hoc analysis revealed that procrastination was highest in the youngest group (14 to 29 years) declining across the older age groups.
Introverts tend to think things through more before getting started but that, in itself, is not procrastinating. Procrastination might be worse if you're suffering negative feelings like self-doubt, low self-esteem, anxiety or insecurity. The fight against such phenomena is the purpose of this Day.
