How many times have you said those words in recent memory? Putting off tasks and assignments until the last minute is a commonly recognized habit of teenagers and college-aged students. But how prevalent is procrastination in adulthood?
Very prevalent, it turns out. Research has shown that 1 in 5 adults are chronic procrastinators. Whether it’s putting off filing your taxes, scheduling your annual physical, or responding to an email that’s been sitting in your inbox for weeks, procrastination can be a daily struggle that lasts well past your days as a student.
