Why Do I Procrastinate?


The Bible says you procrastinate for one of five reasons.


Indecision. "A double minded man is unstable in all he does." (James 1:8 LB) Indecision causes you to postpone buying a car, choosing a college, getting married, buying new clothes, changing a job.


Perfectionism. "If you wait for perfect conditions, you'll never get anything done!" (Ecclesiastes 11:4 LB) If you wait for things to be perfect, you're going to wait a long time.


Fear. "The fear of man is a trap." (Proverbs 29:25 LB) Have you been postponing going to the dentist? Or getting into marriage counseling? Ask yourself, "What am I afraid of?"


Anger. "A lazy person is as bad as someone who is destructive." (Proverbs 18:9 GNT)


Procrastination is passive resistance. I don't want to do it because I don't like you telling me to do what I have to do.


Anger causes us to put things off.


Laziness. "Lazy people want much but get little, while the diligent are prospering." (Proverbs 13:4 LB)


One of the most popular words in America is "easy." If it's easy, we like it. If it's hard, we don't like it. The next time you find yourself procrastinating, stop and ask yourself why. Then ask God to help you overcome it so you can move forward and do what you need to do.
