Wonder why you postpone everything until you get stressed? In any case, you are not alone, about 20% of people suffer from procrastination. There are indeed disadvantages, but you can also see it from a positive side.
We all sometimes postpone preparing your tax return or a test. You can do that tomorrow and if you prefer to redecorate your house or room today, there is no one to stop you.
It is often thought that procrastination is related to perfectionism or fear of failure, because yes what you cannot do don't fail either right? It has also been linked to laziness, but unlike a lazy knife, the procrastinator wants to do something, just not what needs to be done.
Most researchers argue that procrastination is mainly a result of impulsivity . Impulsive people live day by day. Plans can be changed at any time. They are easily distracted and fool themselves into thinking they still have plenty of time to arrange what needs to be done. In the end, they meet the deadline, but not without stress, and they often do not meet the deadline.
However, that impulsivity can also provide nice moments in life that pass the planner. People with procrastination are often creative because they create space for everything that comes along and thus distracts them. Leonardo da Vinci was also a procrastinator. He spent sixteen years on the Mona Lisa. Steve Jobs also had a hand, but they both managed to do it.
Do you suffer from your own procrastination? Then think carefully about why you procrastinate. Make a to-do list every day and start with the task you don't feel like doing. Check off the list and reward yourself, you will find that it will be satisfying and you will experience less stress.
