Procrastination is like stopping a train that left the station: when we procrastinate, we hold others up.

I read about a simple technique that might help (see ADHD CoachBlog, www.additudemag.com). The author mentioned that at times, it is hard for her to get off the couch and go to bed late at night when she is tired. She focuses on the TV shows, even though she would rather go to bed and get a good night’s sleep.
