- defined as performing a less urgent task avoiding more urgent ones. This practice is often counterproductive and the individual makes a conscious and voluntary decision to engage in this behavior. Procrastination is not laziness. The psychology of a procrastinator is most likely a person who is impulsive, lacks discipline, with little or no self control.
- is not laziness. Labeling procrastination as laziness can have a devastating effect on a person’s ego and self worth. It can also alienate the relationship you have with the person you say is procrastinating. Hypnosis allows the procrastinator to access their subconscious mind where they are able to focus and concentrate on the issue.
- can be a learned behavior and doesn’t always have devastating results. Sometimes a person will put off doing something simply because they find the task boring or unpleasant. Doing a more pleasant task in lieu of a more urgent task can easily be justified or rationalized.
- has devastating results when the practice becomes chronic and one minimizes the consequences of not doing what they should be doing. Bottom line, chronic procrastination is a way to deny responsibility and breeds a false sense of self worth.
Everyone Procrastinates; What’s the Harm?
While it is true everyone procrastinates from time to time, it is a practice which can increase anxiety and stress. Ultimately the increased pressure can affect your job performance. When a deadline is at risk of not being met, panic sets in. Rushing to meet a deadline coupled with panic is a recipe for disaster.
