What does procrastination cost?

When I was heading to that url, I was happy that someone finally put a lot of effort into the study of procrastination costs and published it on the web. Not really. They are just using a catchy title to show people that the later they start saving, the more they will loose on the interest.

That's not exactly what I would call the cost of procrastinating, but well, to be fair, I can recognize there must be some people out there having a problem of putting off the implementation of their savings and investing strategies. If you are one of them and few simple numerical arguments can persuade you, head to New Zealand's Stuff.co for an article.

Children's procrastination

Parents always want the best for their child. But even with the best intention, they very often manage to introduce even more problems instead of helping their child. That's especially the case when it comes to procrastination, one of the most misunderstood problems some people are experiencing in their lives.

Doreen Nagle doesn't come with any earth shattering news in that matter, but her small "Stop your children's procrastination by getting organized" article offers some basic yet valuable information. "Stop rescuing your children" is perhaps the most important message there.

I would add one more. Don't command or manage your children too much, help them develop their own decision making skills instead.
