Procrastination activities

When you put off something important, you typically replace it with another activity that isn’t a top priority at the time (think watching YouTube, browsing social media, running errands, etc.). These are your procrastination activities.

These activities are not necessarily evil. They only become a problem when they work against us and prevent us from achieving genuinely crucial objectives.

Become Conscious of such activities

It’s critical to become conscious of the factors that normally cause you to get sidetracked so that whenever this happens, you can stop for a moment and ask the following question:

  • “Am I doing this to delay something more important?”

Continue if the response is “No, there isn’t a more crucial activity I need to be completing right now.”

If you answered “Yes, I am substituting this for something very important”, see this is a trigger to implement Virtue Map anti-procrastination strategies right now.
