Why We Wait 10 Days to Do Something That Takes 10 Minutes

procrastination-1280x640.jpg

Studies say humans are bad at prioritizing long-term goals over instant gratification. It doesn’t take a scientist to explain why I might put off other things, such as doing my dishes. Those are annoying and kind of gross, and the primary reward is just being able to use them in the future. Still, at a certain point, the anxiety of not having done these tasks surpasses the annoyance of doing them in the first place. That’s an entirely predictable cycle that many otherwise productive people find themselves in when it comes to simple household jobs: A chore that I could feel good about completing in 10 minutes instead stresses me out for days or weeks.

Ever catch yourself doing the same? Learn why here.

If you are looking to sell this year, waiting until the spring to list your home means you will have the greatest competition among buyers. However, that does not mean buyers are not ready before March/April. Many are out there even in this cold weather hoping to catch something great before the Spring rush.

Beat the rush of housing inventory that will enter the market by listing your home soon. Read why at this Keeping Current Matters article.
