With all the craziness that is happening in the world today, the first thing I have been doing on waking up these past few days, is to check my Facebook account.

The 5 evils of procrastination and 5 ways to overcome them!

I actually wanted to name this post as, 'getting myself acquainted with the evils of procrastination and coming up with a list of tools to help me not to procrastinate' but this was too long a title and so I had to condense it to something that still conveyed more or less the same meaning.
