It’s best not to procrastinate, or put things off until the last minute. When you procrastinate or postpone what you should accomplish now, you increase your stress level considerably at the time something is due. The quality of work you do also suffers when you procrastinate or unwisely delay doing your work. It’s better to start something early to give yourself some wiggle room rather than procrastinate or consistently put your affairs off until a later date.
