Some of the biggest problems in my adult years, surfaced during my childhood. As a teenager I developed the habit of procrastinating. I would wait until the last possible moment to study or write a school paper. According to Procrastinators Anonymous, "Procrastinators do not have a problem with time management. They have a problem with compulsive avoidance."
Procrastination is one of the biggest problems in American society and it is especially disruptive to males. Rather than investing their time in productive activities, too many males waste time on video games and pornography. These time-killing activities can prevent them from reaching emotionally maturity and may harm their relationships.
Dan Commer has compiled a list of ten pieces of advice for teen males that are worth checking out.
Here are two of them:
- "Control your sexuality or it will control you."
- Whatever you’ve been asked to do, do just a little bit more.
I wish I would have mastered both of those as a teenager.
