Why do we procrastinate?

27 Sep, 2014 Productivity

Why do we procrastinate? Why do we let meaningless situations get in the way of our dreams? Why do we put off starting a new business, losing the weight, or taking that trip? What is really so important in life that we have to put our dreams on the back burner?

Here’s the good news; you are the one who procrastinates, and you are the one who can make it stop.

There are many reasons why people procrastinate, and most of them are valid excuses. Some may have a hard time concentrating, and find themselves with so much on their plate, they can’t focus on just one thing. Others may have anxieties about completing a project and doing it right, so they avoid doing it all together.

Our belief about ourselves is another reason why we may procrastinate. If a person doesn’t believe they can achieve their dreams, they will tell themselves so, and avoid trying.

For some, it could be the fear of failing. Why start out to accomplish something, only to realize you can’t do it after all—and then, there’s
always the possibility that someone won’t like it. Whatever the reasons for procrastination, there are ways to overcome it.
