Why we procrastinate

I started reading a book on procrastination. Unfortunately I kept putting reading more off :)

Now that I finally read more, we procrastinate -

  • Not because we are lazy
  • Because we might fear failure
  • Because completing the task might lead to more work
  • Because we feel that we are being forced to do the work - we talk to ourselves as if its not our choice
  • Focus on the end of the project - which is especially overwhelming if the project is large
  • We are perfectionists and are not willing to accept anything less than perfect - which raises the bar and makes us procrastinate

I wanted to write more, but I am feeling lazy,...
