Everyone procrastinates. Procrastination doesn’t just show up in our work life – it’s thriving in relationships also. Our marriage relationships are filled with the poison of procrastination. What happens? Procrastination becomes a real barrier to a life filled with meaning. It also shows up – over time – as a poison that kills our marriages.
There are 9 reasons we all procrastinate:
- – we fear failure – or success,
- – we don’t know where to start or how to finish,
- – we’re bored,
- – we’re striving for perfect,
- – we’re saving our energy for something else (otherwise known as laziness),
- – we’re too tired,
- – we’re rebelling,
- – we don’t have the motivation to keep going,
- – and we’re distracted by a million other things.
In this book, the nine reasons we all procrastinate are spelled out in detail as they appear in marriage, and solutions, and strategies are suggested for each area.

Lori Ferguson, the author, has been writing about encouragement in marriage for more than 8 years at EncourageYourSpouse.com.
She’s invested in helping husbands and wives encourage each other to live with purpose: to be a team, to make a difference in each other’s lives, in the lives of their children, loved ones, communities and countries. Procrastination is a huge barrier to this purpose for husbands and wives, so that’s why she’s written this book.
And she’s not just the writer… she’s a procrastinator herself, so she knows the pain and consequences. (Fortunately she was able to finish this book – and conquer one project, to the delight of her husband and adult kids!)
