Inside: Fun + Motivating Procrastination Quotes 

Procrastinating is something I’m constantly fighting. I get easily distracted, and most of the time I just find something better, and more entertaining to do.

To be honest, I’m not as bad as I used to be. I have learned how to control it and how to set up my to-do list so I won’t feel the need to procrastinate. It can be hard at first, but you can totally work on that.

One of the ways I like to combat procrastination is by displaying my favorite motivating quotes around my desk. I like to write them down or print them off as little reminders to stay focused and motivated throughout the day.
