What’s Your Excuse for Procrastinating

Procrastination. I know, almost all of us have procrastinated in our lives and some have done it not just once, some do it on a daily basis.

Students are one of the persons who are prone to committing procrastination. Doing their homework days before the deadline even when it is given early. Buying materials for their project a night before even if they had other days that were available.

For some, they procrastinate other tasks especially if they are hard to do to give away to the other tasks that are much easier to do.

Some even say that their creative juices release when they are pressured or in a hurry or in what they call ‘cramming’ so they just procrastinate all the time.

While for some, they procrastinate their tasks to be able to have some time first to rest. Although it is important to rest before doing something, it is different from purposely resting to delay your task.

Me, I procrastinate because I’m too lazy to actually brainstorm ideas and spend a lot of my time starting a task so I just either end up doing my hobbies or sleeping.

But procrastination shows an impending problem within your management of yourself. As said by Dr. Fuschia Sirois, professor of psychology at the University of Sheffield, people engage in this irrational cycle of chronic procrastination because of an inability to manage negative moods around a task.

Not only does procrastination result in negative results for your tasks but it also has an impact on your psychological being.

No matter what reason you have, there isn’t really an excuse for procrastination. It does not lead to anything beneficial for you as it only becomes a habit that is hard to surpass over time so good luck on that.

How about you? What’s your excuse for Procrastinating?
