We all know the feeling of procrastination. That feeling of dread when you know you should be doing something, but you just can’t seem to get yourself to do it. It’s a common problem that affects people of all ages and backgrounds, and it can have a serious impact on our lives. But why do we procrastinate? What is it about our Behaviour that leads us to put off important tasks? In this blog post, we’ll explore the mysteries of procrastination and uncover the underlying causes of this common problem.

What is Procrastination?

Procrastination is the act of delaying or postponing a task or activity. It’s a Behaviour that can have serious consequences, as it can lead to missed deadlines, lower productivity, and even feelings of guilt and shame. Procrastination can be caused by a variety of factors, including fear of failure, lack of motivation, and even boredom.

The Causes of Procrastination

There are many potential causes of procrastination, but the most common is fear of failure. When we’re afraid of failing at a task, we’re more likely to put it off. This is because we’re afraid of the potential consequences of failure, such as embarrassment or criticism. Other potential causes of procrastination include lack of motivation, boredom, and even perfectionism. Perfectionists often procrastinate because they’re afraid of not meeting their own high standards.

How to Overcome Procrastination

The good news is that procrastination is a Behaviour that can be overcome. The key is to identify the underlying cause of your procrastination and then take steps to address it. For example, if you’re procrastinating because of fear of failure, you can try to reframe your thinking and focus on the potential rewards of success. If you’re procrastinating because of a lack of motivation, you can try to break down your task into smaller, more manageable chunks. Finally, if you’re procrastinating because of perfectionism, you can try to set realistic goals and focus on progress rather than perfection.


Procrastination is a common problem that can have serious consequences. But by understanding the underlying causes of procrastination and taking steps to address them, you can overcome this Behaviour and achieve your goals. With the right strategies and a bit of determination, you can learn to manage your procrastination and take control of your life.
