If you’ve ever wondered why you’ve been procrastinating then one of these three categories may help you to better understand it. Sometimes simply knowing why will help you to overcome the hurdle.
I’m not a habitual procrastinator but when it comes to life changing goals I tend to put them off. It didn’t even occurred to me that I was making excuses to procrastinate until many many years later. It wasn’t until I realised why I was making these excuses that I could confront it. It being the fear of failure (I go into this more in my book ‘Successfully Done’).
A lot of people get stuck because they don’t know what’s holding them back. You know what they say about knowing your enemies – so you could deal with them better. And if you don’t deal with the reasons why you procrastinate then you can’t move forward.
