How many times have you told yourself, “I’ll do my (insert task here) in 30 minutes,” but end up putting it off until the last minute? Before you know it, you've already got a pile of work sitting idly on your desk, and you’re racking your brain trying to figure out how to find the time to finish everything.

Procrastination is never a good thing. Although you get an adrenaline rush from finishing a task just in the nick of time, you end up more stressed than you should be. In fact, we have an annual reminder to avoid the stress and unnecessary drama that go with it. September 1 is Fight Procrastination Day,” which according to AllBusiness. com is the brainchild of Ethel M. Cook, a productivity consultant and coach based in Massachusetts. Cook wanted to allot a day for people to catch up on backlogs, and to have the right attitude with the start of the American school year. It is celebrated on the first Wednesday right after Labor Day, which is celebrated in the States every first Monday in September.

But we don't think one day out of a year is enough. If you're going to be productive about work and life, you will need to keep procrastination to a minimum every day. So gear up by checking out FN’s 10 tips to curb procrastination in the slide show below.
