We all procrastinate ,Procrastination is the act of putting off work for no particular reason. I really use to do this alot especially in secondary school when I was giving the projects and assignments and there is this particular saying that make it feel good ‘’if tomorrow is not the due date then today is not the do date’’ funny right 😂😂…but I realized it was a really wrong ideology when I got to the university and I needed to stop procrastinating so I did some work on myself
I would share some benefits of stopping procrastination,the challenges you might face and some tips to stop procrastinating
Benefits Of Stopping Procrastinating
Lower anxiety: The more we procrastinate and the longer we wait to get started with important things, the more anxiety and stress we have.
Higher self-discipline: One of the biggest reasons we procrastinate is low self-discipline. The main benefit of beating procrastination is that you automatically increase your self-discipline.
Better work: People who don’t procrastinate accomplish better work. When you work with less stress, anxiety, and high self-discipline, you give yourself the chance to do better work.
Common Procrastination Challenges
Fear: There are many kinds of fear that make us procrastinate. Fear of failure, rejection, novelty, success, suffering, hardship, you name it. To overcome fear, we must focus on the present moment
2. Lack of knowledge: If you don’t know how to do something, learn how to do it. But if you think you can’t do that, you’ll never start. That’s one of the key characteristics of a passive mindset you don’t even bother trying. But to beat procrastination, we must adopt an active mindset.
