I’ll Think About That Tomorrow

We all know one—somebody who puts things off to the last possible moment—The Procrastinator. Some people put off little things, like organizing a closet or tidying up the garage. Then there are those who put off the big stuff—filing taxes in August instead of April, not paying bills on time, or postponing yearly medical check-ups—and that’s when serious consequences can ensue.
