What type of procrastinator are you?

(3 mint Read)

Everyone in this world has the habit to put off things due to many factors and in different ways. All we need to do is to embrace this habit productively. But before that we need to find which type of procrastinators we are.

Active Procrastinators – These active procrastinators deliberately delay their works to be done, but in an active way. They need that adrenaline rush while performing their work by approaching deadlines. They can manage their time purposefully and feel challenged. Likewise, they are great thinkers too.

Passive procrastinators – This type is something which we all normally do and are familiar with in our day-to-day life activities. Here we deliberately put things off mostly due to laziness and lethargic ness.

Chronic procrastinators – This is the problematic type and people with such procrastination will suffer a lot. Even their family will suffer mainly because of them. They too have goals, but they never desire to achieve it, and they don’t have any sufficient self-control. Only through forceful deadline they might sometimes complete their works. They know that doing so is bad for them, but they can never stop it, as they are prone to psychological vulnerability.

5 best tips to overcome procrastination

1- Train your sub-conscious mind to say “RIGHT NOW”. It should become a habit to a point that whenever or whatever work it comes you tend to do it automatically “RIGHT NOW”.

2- Love and Inspire yourself. This creates positivity, this in turn pulls positive energies towards you. Do not let yourself depressed, because that creates negativity and destroys any active confidence left inside you.

3- Whenever you are bored and irritated, try to indulge yourself in small activities that you love. Keep your mind occupied in a healthy way.

4- Read books that encourage you, hear good podcasts of successful people and follow the good things which you like.

5- Love and care for nature. When you are around greenery fresh oxygen flows in making you active and healthy. Surround yourself with positive thinking people.

Best 3 books to read to avoid procrastination.

These books are easily available in Amazon.com. I also suggest books and stories of Swami Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi.

We would have tried many methods to overcome the procrastination inside us. But until it doesn’t become a habit it will always be a failure and results in stress. So, the key to beat them is to honestly understand or find the reason why we are procrastinating it. Find the best way which works for you and strongly follow it.

Beat procrastination and find a better self.
