Would you like your goal personalised on your mug?

This mug is perfect for procrastinators. Those who have important things to do, but who find every excuse under the sun not to do them.

 I'm looking at you pen alphabetiser!

You tend to procrastinate because the task at hand is too big, too boring, too unclear or you are scared of the potential consequences. Putting off what you have to do feels good because you get to avoid all those negative emotions (for now). In fact, procrastination is a very effective strategy for relieving stress, but unfortunately, after you've done all the laundry, cleaned the car and phoned your mum,  the task still has to be done.

The secret to combatting procrastination is to do it, even though you don’t feel like it.

To start even though it is hard and horrible and confusing.

To make the decision to experience pain in the short time in order to get the gains in long term.

Repeat after me:

Short term pain, long term gain
Short term pain, long term gain
Short term pain, long term gain

 
^^ Your new procrastination mantra
