Urgent Support


It is an act of replacing high-priority actions with tasks of lower priority, or doing some-thing from which one derives enjoyment and thus putting off important tasks to a later time. It is an unproductive state of being to voluntarily delay an intended course of action despite expecting to be worse off for the de-lay.

Procrastination's Code
  • I must be perfect.
  • Everything I do should go easily and with out effort.
  • It is safer to do nothing than to take a risk and fail.
  • I should have no limitations
  • If it is not done wright, it’s not worth doing at all.
  • I must avoid being challenged
  • If I succeed, someone will get hurt
  • If I do well this time I must al-ways do well.
  • Following someone else’s rules means I’m giving in and not in control
  • I can’t afford to let go every-thing or anyone.
  • There is a right answer and I will wait until I find it .
  • If I expose my real self, people won’t like me
  • I will not put in my best effort so If I do poorly I will be able to tell myself that if I worked harder, I could have done better.
