What type of procrastinator are you? [infographic]

“The two rules of procrastination:
1) Do it today.
2) Tomorrow will be today tomorrow.” ~Author Unknown

There are a million and one* quotes on the internet about procrastinating (*this is a non-scientific figure), if not more. There was no time to count them all.

In truth, procrastination seems to be a core part of human nature. Philosophers, authors and other notable figures throughout history have directly addressed it. Benjamin Franklin is rumored to have said: “You may delay, but time will not.”

Admittedly, there’s a lot to do at work and around the house. It takes time to read all those business books. There are CE credits to secure and marketing plans to produce and social media initiatives to undertake.

But no matter how efficient we are, we never seem to get it all done. Why is that?

An infographic from NeoMam, a U.K.-based company that specializes in creating infographics, introduces four types of procrastinators, with an infographic that you can follow below like a quiz (click to enlarge).

As you view your results, remember that it’s like another unknown author said: “Only Robinson Crusoe had everything done by Friday.”
