I am proud because he dedicated this presentation to me, which is indeed honoring. The presentation draws analogy between procrastination on tasks and procrastination on opportunities. The two originates from the same problem: sticking to the familiar and enjoying the comfort zone. Denial of tasks and denial of opportunities are the consequences of such acts. Dr. Anani draws comparison with the stock market where denial of facts leads to miseries. So are denial of changes and the accompanied loss of opportunities. The presentation concludes that those people who procrastinate on important tasks are the most likely to procrastinate on opportunities. Procrastination on opportunities
