When You Procrastinate Ask Yourself Questions

Posted on 13th February 2024

When you procrastinate, do you tend to ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ณ? Try to ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ธ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ณ ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€, instead.

I just came out of a session with a client who kept procrastinating on sending job applications and felt bad about it, triggering a negative spiral that kept her stuck.

By answering thoughtful questions, she discovered that her procrastination was actually a form of "๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป" towards a path that would have switched off her sense of aliveness.
(In her heart, she's way more excited about starting a business).

She left full of energy, inspiration, enthusiasm and also with a set of exciting actions to take (all this happened because she changed the way she looked at her "procrastination").

So next time you procrastinate, instead of beating yourself up, ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ธ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ณ:

โžก๏ธ What is my ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜†/๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฑ trying to tell me by procrastinating?
โžก๏ธ Am I really procrastinating? or am I ๐˜‚๐—ป๐˜€๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ that this is the right course of action for me?
โžก๏ธ If procrastination were a form of ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป, what could this be protecting me from?
โžก๏ธ When I procrastinate on this task, what do I ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—น ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ? What triggers this feeling?
โžก๏ธ Is this set of actions I'm procrastinating about going take me where I can feel ๐—ณ๐˜‚๐—น๐—น๐˜† ๐—”๐—น๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ*?
