Psychological Causes For Procrastination:
- Overthinking And Laziness
What causes mental laziness? Well, the first thing that makes you lazy is overthinking. Do not mix overthinking with deep thinking, there is a difference. Deep thinking means you are considering all the aspects and rationalizing them to seek the truth or the solution. Whereas:
“Overthinking Is The Art Of Creating Problems That Weren’t Even There”
you think too much before starting or while doing the work which produces worries, fear, pain which in results makes you avoid that work and hence you become so-called lazy.
You start thinking when or how are you going to do the work instead of doing it, what if I was not perfect and made a mistake. All these thoughts exhaust your mind and hence you have not left with any energy so you can do the actual work.

- Avoidance And Inconsistency
Why can’t I stop being lazy? Because you don’t face the work you should do even for a minute. You start avoiding the work due to overthinking which produces inconsistency. And what is repeated becomes a subconscious habit, from overthinking to avoiding the work. The subconscious mind is very, very fast, and powerful than the conscious mind.
“First Forget Inspiration. Habit is More Dependable. Habit will Sustain You Whether You are Inspired or Not”
Identify your habits, from minor to major such as what is your routine, how is your lifestyle, supervise yourself, what are you doing physically or mentally before, while, and after doing the work. Have realistic goals and practical plans to achieve them, otherwise in attempts to fulfill them you will end up with avoidance or inconsistency.
Habits are the most important things for success, start with avoiding unproductive habits instead of avoiding the work. Face all of the things that are important to you every day even if you are only able to do them for a few minutes in starting days. This will become your habit, what you do every day you become better at it cause as soon as something becomes a habit, the subconscious mind starts doing that itself and the task is less painful as all the major processes you were doing are now getting subconsciously done.
- Unsettled Priorities
Do you know how many things in your life are important to you? How many kinds of work you do a day? What are their priorities in your life?
“To change your life, you need to change your priorities”
Unsettled priorities make you hesitant and easily distractable and decrease your concentration power. Make a list of all the work or things that you do or should do daily. Then arrange them according to their priorities and stick to it until it turns into your habit.
