Surprising  Causes of Procrastination: Why We Leave Things On Tomorrow

By Divya Toshniwal

Procrastination is the act of delaying or postponing tasks, often due to a lack of motivation, interest in the task at hand, or maybe sheer laziness.

Procrastination is a complex behavior that can stem from multiple causes and might vary from person to person. Here are a few causes of procrastination that you should be aware of :

Too many distractions: We are so involved in the world of digital media and they are so well designed to keep us hooked.

Fear of failure: When we fear that we will fail, we tend to avoid doing the task altogether.

Lack of motivation: Unless we are motivated enough to do a particular task it will be put off for as long as we can.

Perfectionism: Some individuals may have high standards for themselves and may procrastinate because they are unable to start a task until they believe they have all the information they need to complete it perfectly.

Instant Gratification: The need to be instantly gratified is a major cause of procrastination. Instant gratification is the desire for immediate satisfaction or reward.

Emotional and psychological issues:  Some people may procrastinate as a result of underlying emotional or psychological issues, such as depression, anxiety, or ADHD.

Poor organization and time-management skills:  Some people do not procrastinate purposely. It is just their poor management skills.
