The act of procrastination may be a sign of deeper psychological struggles with self-doubt, low self-esteem, anxiety or insecurity

Was Scarlett O’Hara an iconic procrastinator when she declared, at the end of “Gone With the Wind,” “After all, tomorrow is another day”?

People procrastinate for a number of reasons, points out verywellmind.com:
‒ Perfectionism: not wanting to do anything unless it can be done “perfectly”
‒ Intimidation: tasks seem too overwhelming
‒ Stress: an inability to focus
‒ Fatigue: too worn out to even begin
‒ Pessimism: having the mindset that accomplishing a task will not make a difference

Verywellmind.com encourages procrastinators to:
1. Keep perfectionism at bay and strive for “good enough.“
2. Make a list of tasks and note how long each should take to complete. Do quick tasks first and mark them off the list.
3. Dangle a reward, such as attending a show, visiting friends or a bubble bath, after task completion.
4. Break a large job up into parts, if possible, and tackle the easy aspects first.
5. Or, get the difficult facets out of the way and leave the easy stuff for the home stretch.
6. Optimistically highlight the positive, beneficial factors associated with a task and minimize negative thoughts.
7. Avoid the temptation of distracting time-stealers such as a television series or social media.
8. Pay attention to how much energy the task will take and accomplish daunting projects, such as cleaning windows or organizing an attic, for when personal energy levels are highest.

While verywellmind.com’s advice may assist some procrastinators, the act of procrastination may be a sign of deeper psychological struggles with self-doubt, low self-esteem, anxiety or insecurity, suggested The New York Times in a March report.

The “vicious” cycle of habitual procrastination may be aided with counseling.
