Effects of being a procrastinator
The main effect of being a procrastinator is that it can lead to low self esteem.
If we can’t complete the tasks we start, if we can’t accomplish our goals it can make us feel tense, stressed, anxious or resentful. The obvious effect of procrastination is in missed opportunities and lack of progress in work BUT It can also lead to unhealthy and uncomfortable relationships. People close to us feel we don’t care enough for them
Procrastinators are likely to suffer from social phobia, anxiety and also have higher incidence of depression and substance abuse.
Overcoming procrastination is a skill which can be easily learned online. Procrastination is different from being lazy. Lazy is what you have probably been labelled as for as long as you can remember. The word procrastination is derived from the Latin word “pro” which means forward, and “crastinus” which means “of tomorrow”.
To understand the components of procrastination, this definition is useful: “Making a decision for no valid reason to delay, to complete a task or a goal you have committed to, and instead, doing something of lesser importance, despite there being negative consequences to not following through on the original task or goal.”
The key elements of procrastination are:
- “No valid reason” to postpone.
- “Do something of lesser importance” to get rid of the discomfort stemming from procrastination.
- Negative consequences of procrastination.
Becoming aware of these components and how they feed into a procrastination cycle will help you break the chain.
