Do you sometimes busy yourself with a bit of “procrasti-working”? Working on unimportant tasks in order to delay working on important ones?
We often think that procrastination, perfectionism and paralysis are driven by laziness or lack of motivation or A-type behaviour.
But the truth is that we procrastinate, perfect and stop taking action on our goals and habits because we want to avoid negative emotions.
For so many of us, we think that there must be something wrong with us when we can’t stick to our plan, spend too much time perfecting or procrastinate often.
