Watch this video to understand what procrastination is, how it differs from planned delays and ways to support a client who is procrastinating.
When we first think of procrastination what comes to mind is avoidance - someone avoiding a task. It could be because it’s boring, unpleasant or you might get very little pleasure from doing it. Similarly, someone might procrastinate because they might not see that immediate gain or reward.
But that’s not just it - sometimes people also might procrastinate because they have been given a task - been delegated something that they don’t see is on their terms so perhaps they push back because they’re told what to do and do not feel they have a say.
