Low Capacity for Self-Control

Self-control (also known as self-discipline and willpower) reflects people’s ability to guide their behavior in pursuit of their goals, especially when faced with harmful temptations. Being able to exert self-control is crucial to successfully self-regulating one’s behavior and avoiding procrastination.

Accordingly, procrastination is sometimes said to occur because of akrasia, a state of mind where someone acts against their better judgment due to a lack of sufficient self-control.

Various issues can lead to low self-control, like genetic predisposition, exhaustion, and decision fatigue
