Stages of anxiety and procrastination - Deepstash

Stages of anxiety and procrastination

  • You give a task the power to determine your worth and happiness
  • You use perfectionism to raise the stakes of a mistake. You make it seem that any mistake equals death
  • You feel frozen with anxiety because your natural threat assessment system produces adrenaline to deal with threats to you
  • You use procrastination to escape your dilemma
  • Finally, you use a real threat such as a deadline to overcome your fears and start the task.
