As the work week has kicked off, we've made it through at least one day of new tasks and another stack of things to add to our to-do lists. I write this as I stay up tweaking a presentation while watching Monday Night Football, the temptation has surfaced more than once to shut the computer down, crack open a beverage and just soak in the game. I can always get up early tomorrow morning and finish it all up right?

Won't do it.

I definitely believe little victories against procrastination continually build upon each other for long term success. It's why I'll get my stuff done now, write this blog post before going to bed, and get up early tomorrow morning for a run. Getting stuff behind me today will help make tomorrow that much more enjoyable.

I've written about how to make procrastination somewhat productive. However, there has to be a line drawn in the sand at some point. It's a battle we all fight, no matter how cool you think you are. It's just the way we're wired as humans. We all just have different ways of fighting (or embracing) procrastination.

How do you deal with procrastination in your day-to-day?
