Me & Procrastination

Few months ago Mas Sidoe gave me form to test how I manage time, and how I do all my job. He said that it's all about a word "Procrastination".
Procrastination is the deferment or putting-off of an action or task, usually by focusing on some other distraction (compare temporisation). It is Latin for "foremorrowing," or making some such of tomorrow.
I read Riyono's blog, and then realized that he also wrote about procrastination. I hate it although I usually do that.

The allure of putting off an unpleasant task is pervasive in our society, a fact which has given rise to jokes and cliches such as "never put off until tomorrow that which you can put off until the day after tomorrow". Procrastination can be as benign as waiting until the last minute to file one's taxes, or never cleaning out the garage. But procrastination can be a persistent trait in some people, known as chronic procrastinators. In these people, it can be a self-destructive state where the procrastinator can get nothing accomplished on time, resulting in serious career struggles, persistent financial problems, and diminished quality of life.

Think that it a bad habit, that should be eliminated from our daily life. I believe we can do everything better and more effective if we can leave procrastination.
