Procrastination is a way of easing our own discomfort. Discomfort because the task is too hard, too boring, too big, too scary. The difficulty with procrastinating is that it makes you feel better for a moment, which makes it very reinforcing (and therefore more likely that you will do it again next time), but it does nothing to fix the reason the task feels uncomfortable to begin with. It is still too big, too hard, too scary, or too boring the next time you sit down to do it. So, the cycle repeats.

 

We discuss ways to:

- Identify these procrastination loops when they start to unfold,

- Identify some of the thoughts underlying the discomfort and reframe them,

- Employ alternative tasks that can alleviate the discomfort AND make the task less difficult, scary, hard or boring.

- Explore drivers of our motivation.
