Procrastination: The Inside Story
Everyone procrastinates about something. For me it might be folding the laundry. For you, it might be throwing away junk mail. For some, it is much more than one thing, it is a pervasive pattern that takes away self-esteem and quality of life.

On this show Dr. Lisa Juliano, clinical psychologist, psychoanalyst and Psychology Today Blogger considers the “ inside story” of procrastination. She invites us to consider that we have our own procrastination profile that has meaning for us. Using interesting examples she discusses with host, Suzanne Phillips how history, rebellion, perfectionism, anxiety, mood etc. drive the avoidance and distraction from that we need to do.

She discusses ambivalence, time challenges, family impact and the no win situation that procrastination creates. Throughout she provides interesting and effective strategies for change. Set up a reminder on your cell phone—Don’t miss this!
