Generally, when “doing stuff” your actions can fall into three different categories.
Stuff you should be doing, stuff you want to do, and stuff you do instead of either of the first of those two.
This is the realm of procrastination. The challenge of putting off doing things that we know are good for us, or that we need to do.
Whether it involves half an hour of procrastination by mindlessly scrolling through social media because you don’t want to get your day started, or longer-term procrastination such not getting that rattling noise in your car fixed until the car breaks down, or putting off making a large life decision like studying or quitting your job. I am certain that almost everybody has experienced the mysterious phenomenon of procrastination to some degree in their life. So, why do we experience it and how do we overcome it? I hope to outline these topics in this article, however it’s important to realise that the way you overcome procrastination might look completely different to the way someone else does. So, feel free to take what resonates for you here and then figure out what works for you.
