Not having self-control

There are definitely varying levels of self-control. However, there is a point in which your self-control can get in the way of productivity.

Procrastinating comes easier to people who naturally do not have the discipline to complete tasks in a timely and organized manner.

If you put something off and then forget to write down that you need to do it later, it’s possible that you could entirely forget about the first task.

Almost everything we do can be broken down into little manageable parts.

It’s totally okay for you to sometimes lounge around and watch TV rather than mow the lawn. Just don’t let that behavior become habitual.

Procrastinating a task does not always equate to worse work. Some people work very well under pressure and can produce very good work.

It can be discouraging when a project takes you two weeks to complete when you thought it would take one.

You cannot fail at something when you don’t do it at all. Facing your fear of failure will help you eventually overcome that fear, or learn to manage it.

It can be tempting to put things off or delay completing tasks simply because you’re worried about the outcome being less than perfect.

By procrastinating, you hold the most control over whatever task you’re working on. However, this also means, obviously, that that particular task isn’t being done.
