I’ve been meaning to write about procrastination for a while… but yes, I put it off. The question is why????
So many people that I know and love, including myself, procrastinate. Not only do we procrastinate with
the projects/tasks we DON'T want to complete but surprisingly, we procrastinate with the projects we DO want to complete. I find this so fascinating that I decided to learn more about it. One of articles I read (“Why People Procrastinate” by Itamar Shatz) impressed me so much that I reference his 28 possible reasons in this blog.
I want you to think about one major goal you want to achieve but either haven’t started yet or haven’t finished yet. Is it starting a business? Is it finding a new career? Is it buying a vehicle? The question is why??? I believe it’s imperative that we identify the reason(s) we procrastinate because it’s only in acknowledging those reasons and finding solutions that we can take action and achieve those goals.
So I implore you to take this quiz and be honest with yourself about your responses. Here are the instructions:
1. Complete the sentence “I procrastinate on my dream goal/project because…” with each of the 28 options listed in the blog.
2. Classify your response my selecting only 1 of the following frequency options:
I procrastinate on my dream goal/project because…
