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.
