We’ve been surprised at how many people are dealing with procrastination! So, you have some important yet not-so-enjoyable things on your to-do list? Wisdom says “get it done!” Then, you are free to enjoy your time doing other stuff, right?
When you procrastinate, you might be telling yourself that you’d rather be spending your time doing what you enjoy, so you justify procrastinating the nasty tasks you hate.
Not so fast. With annoying stuff to do hanging over your head, you don’t enjoy yourself fully even when you are engage in “fun” diversions.
Also, procrastination leads to feelings of overwhelm, guilt, anxiety, incompetence, low self-esteem and failure. In short, procrastination serves as a tool to keep these negative emotions alive.
