If you’re a point A and you want to get to B, you have to ask yourself, if you’re not there yet WHY?
Is it because you’re putting your success off or holding back?
Procrastination is something we all experience, even top performers but it’s what we do with the awareness we’re doing that really drives results.
So let’s dig into it and uncover the The 4 Main Types Of Procrastinators and we’ll see which one you are.
The action of delaying or postponing something.
Procrastination is both positive, negative, and neutral same time. It follows the fundamental laws of polarity.
The law of polarity is the principle that everything has two “poles”: good and evil, love and hate, attraction and disconnection. Think of the North and South Poles on a globe or a battery with its negative and positive terminals. Everything in the universe has an opposite.
Procrastination can be judged as bad if it’s stopping you from doing what you’re meant to be doing. Instead of working on bringing in more business, you might be making tea (Like us Brits), spending time on social media, or just focusing on unimportant tasks.
In the same light, procrastination can be good, especially when it comes to the creative process of giving your unconscious mind space to recognize patterns and stew on ideas. So you can do it with intention.
But procrastination is not positive or negative, it has positive and negative sides (poles) but in itself, procrastination is just neutral when we don’t give it meaning.
There are 4 main types of procrastinators, which one are you?
“I work well under pressure,” they say! This procrastinator forces themselves to focus by shrinking the time they have to tackle a task. These people normally always get the task done but only under express stress. They are adrenaline junkies.
The Self Deprecator
“I am so lazy right now” they say! This procrastinator is the opposite of lazy, so when they don’t do something they are extra hard on themselves. They tend to blame inaction on laziness or stubbornness rather than admit they are tired.
“I’m so busy,” they say! This procrastinator is a pro at filling up their calendar and is often overwhelmed. “I’m so busy” is probably the excuse we hear most often. When busy-ness comes up as an excuse for not doing something, it’s usually an indication of avoidance. Rather than facing a challenge head-on or admitting they don’t want to do something, it’s easier to place the blame on having other important things to do.
The Novelty Seeker
“I just had the best idea!” they say! This procrastinator has a terminal case of Shiny Object Syndrome. They’re constantly coming up with new projects to take on and then getting bored with them a week later. They’re intrigued by the latest trend and will be quick to implement but not follow through.
You’ve probably laughed to yourself and realised that you are one of these or you find yourself doing many of them.
There is a root cause to all procrastination, it comes from the unconscious programming we built in the early years of our lives.
