The Emotional Source of Procrastination

For entrepreneurs, procrastination can be a serious issue. We don’t have anyone else holding us accountable to the work. I love being my own boss, but it means that I also need to be my own supervisor. 

Laura explains how she thinks the root of procrastination often comes from an avoidance of negative emotions. We often know what we want or need to do, but feelings such as confusion, doubt, or overwhelm derail us. Laura describes how we can process these feelings instead of simply reacting to them.

It’s important to do all this self-compassion. Otherwise, shame will just make it worse. Developing skills to process negative emotions will help you move forward in a positive and supportive way.


Seeing Value in Failure

Laura talks about how we should not only expect obstacles but welcome them. Putting yourself in this mindset opens you up to learning and possibilities. We are always growing as long as we are open to possibilities.

Cultivating positive and compassionate relationships with yourself means you’ll be prepared for challenges. The possibility of failure won’t even seem that bad because you won’t take it personally. As a result, you won’t want to procrastinate and can launch yourself into new things.

So if you find yourself procrastinating, Laura wants you to approach it with a mixture of grace and truth. Be curious about why you feel this way and think about what you can do differently.
