Why do you procrastinate?
Marissa Brassfield, @efficient, an effectiveness coach for teams and solopreneurs, made this statement:
If I’m procrastinating, I usually don’t have the resources, knowledge, or skill proficiency to do it well.

Job seekers are prone to procrastination, I feel, because there are so many things they don’t know how to do or haven’t done before! If you’ve never had to call someone and ask for a meeting, you don’t know what to say. And if you don’t know what to say, you don’t make the phone call!
