Procrastination is something we have all experienced to some degree in our lives at one point or another.

It is human nature. It’s an internal fight within ourselves that most of us battle. What I find comforting is that even some of the greatest inventors and geniuses of our time also encountered this disingenuous temptress.

The good news: if they can overcome it, we can too!
