On procrastinationEstimated reading time: 1 min
I learned recently : if I am procrastinating then I may have a challenging problem somewhere that I am avoiding.
I tend to be pretty good at knowing when I procrastinate. Certain habits or certain rituals – I just know that I am procrastinating.
For me, it gets tricky when procrastinating is me working on a personal project. I like creating; it keeps me busy; and I am following my passions. How can that be procrastinating!? Some activities do not seem like a procrastinating activity at first.
So instead of being mad at myself for procrastinating I started to ask myself why I am procrastinating. As a result, this enables me to :
- catch myself in the middle of procrastinating
- figure out what it is that I am avoiding
- decide if to continue procrastinating
Procrastination doesn’t have to be negative.
