Is procrastination your way of life?


The word ‘procrastination’ is not often used, and still a lot of people procrastinate every day of their lives.
Longman dictionary gives the following definition: to procrastinate — to delay repeatedly and without good reason doing something that must be done.
We often try to put off difficult tasks, unpleasant things, confrontations. How often do you put off doing something?
Of course we always find a lot of reasons:
– I don’t have time
– It’s unpleasant
– It’s difficult
– I have a headache
– I’m tired
– I have too many other things to do
– I’m too busy

– Let me have a cup of tea first
– It might not work
– I’ll do it when I can concentrate on it
– I should take a break
Procrastination is a bad habit

Procrastination is a bad habit


Scientists say that the main reason for procrastination is fear or worry. We are afraid of doing something and hope that the problem will go away by itself. Sometimes procrastination creates more fear and worry and more problems. People are afraid of two things – failure and success (!).
Scientists insist that subconsciously we can be afraid of success. Success has a price: people may be jealous, your friends may feel you think too much of yourself, success can bring you more responsibilities.
Try to concentrate. If you fail, it won’t be the end of the world. Success is not a bad thing (even if it has some unpleasant side effects).
