Low Motivation

People sometimes procrastinate because their motivation to act is low

Various issues can reduce people’s motivation, including:

  • Low-value outcomes
  • Delayed outcomes
  • Motivators that are extrinsic and controlled, rather than intrinsic and autonomous
  • Outcomes and actions that are incompatible with a person’s self-identity
  • Low expectancy of achieving positive outcomes, for example, due to imposter syndrome or low self-efficacy
  • Difficulty in associating tasks with their outcomes
  • Low achievement motivation- a weak innate drive to pursue one’s goals.
  • Underlying conditions, like depression.
