Everyone have these feelings within them (even I am included). Both of these feelings are what usually hinders the productivity of what we do. Laziness is not having the will to do something and usually ended up doing nothing. Procrastination is the act of delaying or deferring what you needed to do. We are always having a hard time in hindering these feelings away when trying to do something. I found out that there are a couple of reasons that made us feel that way:
1. It is difficult to start doing something
Usually, it is difficult to start doing something unless it already urgent (which brings us back to procrastinating).
2. Delaying or deferring is easier
We tend to find it easier to delay or defer the work because we believe that we can do it better at a better time. In fact, there is no better time! What we are trying to do is slacking (lazy) around and procrastinate while believing that we can do it later.
3. Just don’t have the urge to do it
This is what I found out to be the hardest barrier to overcome. Pushing yourself to do something you do not want to is difficult because you just
To overcome these barriers, there is a technique proposed from a book that I read is to make yourself work for a period of short time i.e. for 30 minutes. When you started working, just told yourself that you are only going to do this for 30 minutes and you will find yourself to be able to do more (I already tried it)!
I hope this helps whoever that is struggling with this problem because this works for me 🙂
