Many people come to us to get over procrastination. Many people refer to themselves as “procrastinators.” This is an unfortunate self-labelling that often does not serve the individual. There could be many reasons why people procrastinate, but being lazy is not generally our first port of call. From our perspective people procrastinate for a range of different reasons. Some procrastinate because they simply don’t want to do the task or simply don’t have the process (or series of steps) they need to achieve the outcome. Strangely, if you lean towards being perfectionistic, you are much more likely to procrastinate because you don’t want to get wrong.
Sometimes people procrastinate because they simply don’t know the first step. Sometimes they know what the next step is but don’t know how to implement it or simply don’t like it. And at other times it is deemed too costly either emotionally, financially or from a time perspective. Others get stuck because they simply don’t have the skills or foundational knowledge to complete the task. Obviously we don’t know what’s happening for you, but we are confident that the issue is not something as simple as you being lazy or a procrastinator.
No matter what it is, and how complex the underpinning issue is, we can definitely do something about this.
