1- Instant gratification:
As stated earlier, our mind loves the idea of instant rewards. It does not want to think of the big picture, the past and the future. So whenever it sniffs out any instant rewards, it inclines towards it. This leaves little or no time for things that matter, which ultimately leads to procrastination.
We don’t always leave a task incomplete because it is fun and easy. But sometimes, it is because of fear. Suppose you have to call your boss and tell him that you would want a vacation. You are afraid of how your boss will react to this proposal, so you leave the task for later.
3- Overwhelming tasks:
Some tasks might be overwhelming when you look at them. It feels impossible to complete these, so your mind loses the. Motivation to even try. Hence leading you to procrastinate on the more significant, complicated tasks.
Many times, procrastination can begin with a simple distraction. A slight nudge is all it takes to distract you from deep work and lead you to scroll social media.
We are always looking for an excuse not to start a task. People can come up with hundreds of excuses not to do a task if they want to. They may even blame their surroundings to life the burden from themselves.
