💪 How to be a slacker

Published On: July 28th, 2023

Slacking off, procrastination, or just straight-up avoidance – there’s a lot of ways to say “I ain’t doing it now”.

The thing about perpetual procrastination is it often takes more effort to think about delaying a thing than it does to just get it done. Maybe you overthink and under-do? I’ve been there!

Science says not all slacking is bad – putting off a purchase or rethinking a contract can be a financial win! But delaying a decision to save for retirement or pay down debt can be costly.

So today we’re talking about tomorrow, yesterday, next week, and last year. Whether it’s noon or night, there’s always time to procrastinate. Picking a perfect day to get started happens now.
