Do you put things off?

Why do you procrastinate?

Fear and anxiety get in the way. Worries about failure are prominent. Sometimes there’s a fear of achievement.

What projects are you putting off? Why are you putting them off? Looking at these aspects may get you moving more than someone telling you to just do it.

Procrastination is so common that we may need to become a little more tolerant of it. We’re all human.

You may be able to trick your procrastination by putting out your tools before distractions occur. This may help you get your workout in or your lunch made before something more interesting takes your attention.

Listen as Andrew Santella joins Melanie Cole, MS, to share how common procrastination is.
