Why Can’t We Stop Procrastinating?

Stop procrastinating

Procrastination is ruining my life.
I can’t and will not sugar coat my plight. If you are reading this post, you may be another procrastinator looking to get rid of the dirty habit. We are in this together, I am tired and pretty sure you are too.

If you want to know if I fought the habit since I had a post ‘Still fighting Procrastination‘ published in 2017. Well, I did not. This post wouldn’t be up if I did. Dear extreme procrastinator, This issue is an age long battle that we must win.<

Procrastination Is Ruining My Life

I can’t stress this any less, neither can I keep being mute about it. Procrastination is not only ruining my life, it’s doing the same to a lot of people. Dear fellow procrastinator, we have a lot at stake.

I have lost a lot over the years and made so much mistakes. I am pretty sure that there are more mistakes to make if this worthless habit stays put. What do I do to stop procrastinating? This question has become more rhetoric than answerable.

Procrastination is ruining every atom of productivity I have. I’d likely call myself a victim of severe procrastination, the last minute lady. 99% of my ideas have gone down the drain and forgotten. No, I don’t derive pleasure calling myself names and I can not blame depression for this dirty habit. I won that already.

The Fight Against Procrastination Huh? It is 2019, yet you are still fighting this thing! If you told me I’d be here, ranting over something inanimate, I’d call your bluff. I keep going over the same habit over and over again. I have not overcome the pain of putting pleasure before work.

Self Help Posts Did Not Work

99%, if not all procrastinators have searched for solutions on Google. There are several results leading to different websites which are often self-help sites. According to an article I read online, everyone has procrastinated in their lifetime.

I have read a ton of these posts on how to avoid procrastination and after each post, I make series of declarations. Some are listed below;

  • I will not procrastinate again.
  • I am done with this habit.
  • I am getting things done.
  • I will work hard and play later!

But meh! I have lied to myself a lot, so it’s nothing new. I did not stop postponing or worked hard and played later. I played, rushed the job and ranted over the fact that I did. Sometimes, I even procrastinate making these declarations.

Lot of posts on how to avoid procrastination have amazing steps to getting rid of the habit. But I can assure you that unless you want to, they can do little or nothing to make you stop.

Procrastination Ate Up Motivation

Like we all believe, a little bit of motivation can improve your productivity. In my case, I can’t motivate or encourage myself to do what’s needed to be done. I have no motivation to do anything, and I can not trigger the need to stay positive. Losing interest is my new-found hobby. I have to stop procrastinating, it taking a toil on my life!

Many a time, the only motivation I give myself is the fact that I will do it later or tomorrow.
You know what?

It’s all to make me feel better.

I Am Ready To Avoid Procrastination

I have been ready for God knows how long. I want to stop procrastinating.

I can not wait to start getting things done right away.

In as much as I want to give up on this dirty habit, unless I let myself fight it, I will achieve nothing.

Honestly, I do not want to come spilling my failures yet again. This time, I will try the practical guide from lifehack on ways to stop procrastinating.
