Are you dodging that one crucial project, or finding it hard to get it finished?

Do you find yourself waiting to be in the “right mood“, or for the “right time” to do a task?

In today’s fast-paced world, juggling distractions and staying on top of must-do tasks can feel like a behemoth of a task.

I get it…

Sometimes, it can feel like you’re just sitting there, with a glaring screen staring back at you, a blank document smirking at you, and an ever-growing list of tasks that seem to multiply with each second that ticks by.

But rather than facing the music…

We often shove them to the side, and tell ourselves we’ll “get to it later,”

There’s always tomorrow.”

OR, “I just don’t feel like it.

But deep down, we know that when tomorrow rolls around, we’ll only be greeted with the same stress and anxiety of those lingering tasks.

It’s a relentless, vicious cycle that has most people in a chokehold.

And maybe it’s because we’re…

  • Doubting our ability to nail the work just right.
  • Fearing the embarrassment of dropping the ball in front of our friends and family.
  • Feeling lost and not wanting to make the wrong move.

But as time ticks on, and that list of tasks grows, we find ourselves drowning and feeling:

  • Overwhelmed with the amount of work we know we must do to move us forward.
  • Guilty for succumbing to the easier tasks instead.
  • Ashamed that we let our fears get the better of us again.

And sinking to the feelings of disappointment for not starting or finishing our to-do list.

It’s like our inner critic constantly reminding us of how lazy we’re becoming.

This only piles on more stress and anxiety, and the longer we find ourselves stuck in this loop of procrastination, the more we feel isolated, trapped, and chained down by our fears of not being perfect or the possibility of failing.

But here’s the thing –
you’re not alone, and it’s not your fault…

…You Can Break The Vicious Cycle Of Procrastination

Procrastination is a habit that many of us fall into.

In fact, research has suggested that 95% of us procrastinate to some degree, either by…

  • Checking emails or messages
  • Aimlessly browsing the internet
  • Scrolling through social media
  • Shopping online
  • Or even playing with our pets

But why do we fall into this trap?

It’s simple. 

Man playing with his pet instead of working

We’re often intimidated by the daunting, unpleasant, and mundane tasks that hang over us. So, we seek refuge in activities that bring us more joy and ease of our brain’s ‘feel-good chemical’ called dopamine.

This avoidance, however, can lead us down a slippery slope. 

And over time, procrastinating robs us of our motivation and leaves us feeling disillusioned, even with the simplest of tasks, such as making our beds or preparing a meal.

But here’s the truth.

Procrastination doesn’t mean that you’re a bad person.

It’s not a permanent stain on your character and something you’re stuck with forever.

Rather, it’s a habitual response that we’ve unconsciously adopted. And just like any other habit, it can be unlearned and retrained.

Procrastination Used To Be My Biggest Hurdle

Hi, I’m Jackie Woodside

From such a young age, procrastination was pretty much the story of my life.

It was the last two weeks before my graduation.

I was ready to complete my Master’s in Social Work and go off into the world of mental health care.

I was so excited!

But the excitement didn’t last long.

Because I soon realized I had THREE behemoth papers that needed to be submitted in just Two Weeks!

Or I wasn’t going to graduate.

Years of hard work, all came down to those last two weeks.

I was so overwhelmed and stressed by the pressure, that a fear of failing dawned on me.

So what did I do?

I covered the truth up by convincing myself that I’ll get it done tomorrow” or “I’ll do it later”.

You could say that procrastination was winning.

Undiagnosed ADHD, combined with a history of trauma, left me unprepared for the rigors of higher educational demands, and even for the simple demands of our “adulting” world.

But with a handful of all-nighters, lots of coffee, and determination saw me through.

I didn’t do my best, and I knew it. The pains of procrastination only ate away at my self-esteem.

But through years of research and sacrifice, I finally learned how to manage and overcome my habit of procrastination.

So I spent the following years as a therapist and coach, using a holistic approach, and incorporating ideas from neurology, psychology, and productivity science to help others overcome chronic procrastination.

It worked for me, and I would love to do the same for you.

Who Is This Course For?

The Perilous Problem of Procrastination Course is for people who are fed up with feeling the guilt and regret of not getting the important tasks done. 

For the people who do actually care, but have the fear of perfection or failing standing in their way of starting/finishing. 

Procrastination is not an embodiment of who you are. It’s a bad habit that you can detach away from. 

If you’re someone who feels:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Guilt
  • Regret
  • Shame
  • Disappointment
  • Embarrassment
  • Anger (at oneself)
  • Frustration

When they don’t do the tasks you know you need to do, then this course is for you!

Most People Who Don’t Think This Course Is For Them Are Also The People Who Confuse Procrastination With Laziness

Procrastination and laziness are two entirely different issues, and it’s important not to complicate the two as the same obstacle that prevents you from springing into action.

You see, laziness is just a state of unwillingness to exert energy or effort. Those who are lazy typically lack the desire to even begin a task, let alone complete it.

Laziness doesn’t necessarily involve the negative emotions that often accompany procrastination. That’s because the person generally has no interest or intention in completing the work.

But on the flip side, procrastination is an active and voluntary choice to delay or postpone a task, despite knowing that you’ll likely be worse off for doing so.

Think of procrastination as a psychological tug-of-war between self-control and motivation.

And unlike those who are lazy, you genuinely care about completing the task in front of you.

But fear of failure, making the wrong decisions, or not achieving perfection paralyzes and prevents you from taking that first crucial step.

This paralysis leads to feelings of guilt, anxiety, and stress, which traps you in a vicious cycle of procrastination as a means to avoid those uncomfortable emotions.

But here’s the good news…

Procrastination is nothing more than a bad habit, a coping mechanism adopted by 95% of us.

And just like any bad habit, it can be broken.
