Last updated February 4, 2019

Break the unhealthy cycle and get a handle on your stubborn procrastination habits.


Research shows that approximately 25% of us are chronic procrastinators.  We tend to accept procrastination as an inevitability, and yet it can wreck careers, marriages, and health, if not managed.  If you fall into this category, you likely identify with this cycle: 

Cycle of Procrastination 

  1. You have something to do. 
  2. You probably don’t want to do it. Maybe you think it will take too much time, or maybe the details confuse you. In any case you’re anxious about it. 
  3. To avoid the negative feelings and thoughts, you choose something else to do. The “something else” may be productive. Meanwhile, the original task waits for you, and you feel guilty for not completing it. 
  4. The shadow of the task leads to even more stress and even more avoidance. You experience self-talk like “I will feel like doing it later” or “I will have more time tomorrow.” 
  5. You eventually start and finish the task, but it takes longer than it should and is usually a painful process.
