A Procrastinator’s Vicious Cycle

Procrastinator's Cycle.png

Apart from laziness, fear of not being liked or respected is a major reason for procrastination. But, why are only some people are more driven by this fear?

Fear of not being liked or respected <– caused by—- 1.  procrastinator thinks that others think that he or she should know 2. procrastinator thinks that what he doesn’t know is too simple and it is embarassing to admit that he or she doesn’t know

Both the above are situations when the procrastinator is pressurizing oneself instead of just looking at the situation as what he knows and what he doesn’t know and the learning offered in the situation. This defensive behaviour is probably caused by the low self esteem of the procrastinator caused by various other reasons.
