Thinking Space Paper No.41: Effective strategies for NEETs to fight procrastination

The word “Procrastination” comes from the Latin word procrastinatus. The prefix pro means “forward” and crastinatus stands for “tomorrow”. Today, when we talk about procrastination, we refer to a situation where we find it difficult to persuade ourselves to do the things we should do or would like to do. Instead, we perform useless activities and feel guilty about it afterwards. Procrastination can be a major stumbling-block for NEETs hindering them showing up for trainings, starting to apply for a job or getting important paperwork done.
