by Salary.com Staff - Original publish date: October 23, 2015

"I'll get to it later."

Who among us hasn't uttered those fateful words? It could be a daily occurrence or perhaps it only happens on big projects or the weekly task you despise most. But however procrastination finds its way into our lives, it can be a destructive force if you let it take up permanent residence. Especially in the workplace.

Dr. Piers Steel, author of "The Procrastination Equation: How to Stop Putting Things Off and Start Getting Stuff Done," is this week's Salary Talk guest and he's laying some hard truths on Aaron and Wendy. Dr. Steel maps out the characteristics of a serial procrastinator, gets into the reasons at the root of our procrastination, and dispels Aaron's notion that he actually works better when he waits until there's no time to spare. Make sure you listen until the end, at which point Dr. Steel dishes out some free advice on the best ways to break your procrastination habits and start owning your time again.

Don't even take the chance of telling yourself to bookmark this and listen to it later, and let this be your first step towards ending your procrastinating ways for good!
