Help with Procrastination in Fareham, Southampton & Portsmouth
Find yourself looking at emails when you should be completing a report or assignment?
Living a busy life? Putting things off that you should be doing for less important tasks?
What is Procrastination?
We all put things off from time to time, with so many things these days to distract us it is no wonder however, procrastinating can lead to lots of problems not to mention frustration.
Procrastination is when we put off important jobs or tasks in favour of more pleasurable ones. For example, you may have a huge report to write for work but find yourself checking emails, listening to music or even cleaning out your drawers instead of focussing on the task at hand. We all lead busy lives and organising them can be tricky. Procrastination makes things worse as we end up putting off the important things and getting those things done that weren’t essential.
Our minds are programmed to always move away from pain and towards pleasure. If we think a job is too big or difficult then instead of tackling it, we may find smaller jobs to take up our time instead.
Who is prone to Procrastinate and what effect does this have?
This has probably affected us all at some point in our lives. However, prolonged behaviour of procrastinating can lead to us not getting those things in life that we really want. Whether it be a promotion, a new job or even the house we have always dreamed of, procrastination can get in our way and stop us.
When we procrastinate we hold ourselves back from displaying our full potential. This has many effects such as anxiety and frustration. It may also affect those around us, our colleagues and those closest to us may also become frustrated with our behaviour.
What are the reasons behind Procrastination?
Some of the main reasons why this happens are as follows:
- Fear of failure- you may be worried that you will fail at the task and therefore do not want to attempt it in the first place. You may have low self-esteem and self-belief and therefore not believe in your ability to complete the job.
- Fear of success – this at first sounds a little strange but you could fear the success of completing the task and what pressures this may bring. So for example, if you complete that report and do a fantastic job are you likely to get more responsibility and more work to do? You may be scared that you won’t be able to cope with the added pressure and so put off the original task.
- Fear of the unknown- would completing the task lead you in to a state of uncertainty? Not knowing what may be around the corner. It may feel safer to stay were you are and not complete the task, this way you know what to expect and there is no uncertainty.
