stop procrastinatingRecently, I read a great book and promised to mail it to a friend overseas when I was done… about nine months ago. Today, I finally wandered down to the post office and mailed it, because the alternative was working on this blog post. This is classic procrastination at work.

If you’ve noticed yourself doing this as well, you might have explored “cures” for procrastination, or tips to improve your productivity. I’ll admit, I’ve spent many hours procrastinating by exploring these very things. And we’ve even written a huge amount about these topics on here.

Somehow, the irony of wasting time reading about how to not waste time is never enough to get me moving.

The interesting thing about procrastination is that we generally equate it with “being lazy” or “wasting time,” and thus see it as a very negative trait—one to be fixed or avoided. A New Yorker article explained how detrimental procrastination can be, psychologically:

The essence of procrastination lies in not doing what you think you should be doing, a mental contortion that surely accounts for the great psychic toll the habit takes on people. This is the perplexing thing about procrastination: although it seems to involve avoiding unpleasant tasks, indulging in it generally doesn’t make people happy.

One study on procrastination showed that 65% of the students surveyed knew that procrastination would make them unhappy and wished to avoid it. It might be, however, that procrastinating can actually help us get more done—at least more of the important things. Let’s take a look at how procrastination really works, and why it might not be so bad, after all.

Why we procrastinate

The science of procrastination shows that it comes from two forces battling against each other in our brains. One is the limbic system, which is the “unconscious zone that includes the pleasure center.” The other is the prefrontal cortex, often known as the “internal planner.” So the limbic system fights for short-term pleasure, i.e. what we want right now., while the prefrontal cortex fights for what’s best for us in the long run.

According to Timothy A. Pychyl Ph.D., author of Solving the Procrastination Puzzle: A Concise Guide to Strategies for Change, the prefrontal cortex is the portion of our brains that really separates us from animals, who are “just controlled by stimulus.”7 Unfortunately, there’s nothing automatic about this newer, weaker area of our brains. Unlike the limbic system, we really need to consciously kick it into gear to get things done.

The limbic system, on the other hand, will take over as soon as we’re not consciously pushing forward on a task and make us give in to what feels good—i.e. procrastinating.

So our procrastination effectively comes down to our biology. In fact, the economist George Ainslie even said that procrastination “could well be called the basic impulse.”

Entrepreneur and investor Paul Graham has seen more than his fair share of procrastinators. He even says that the most impressive people he knows are all [“terrible procrastinators.]5” Paul has a couple of theories about why we procrastinate. One looks at the disconnect between working on important projects and the rewards we receive for finishing them:

If you work on something you can finish in a day or two, you can expect to have a nice feeling of accomplishment fairly soon. If the reward is indefinitely far in the future, it seems less real. 5

Secondly, Paul points to the fear that comes with working on big, important projects:

Big problems are terrifying. There’s an almost physical pain in facing them.

You’ve probably come across this before. It’s what happens when we want to take on an ambitious project, and we suddenly find all manner of unavoidable obstacles in our way. When running errands takes up so much time that we can’t even begin to write our novel, it’s often because fear is holding us back and our limbic system is taking over—protecting us from the unpleasantness that is fear, and taking us toward the familiar buzz of “getting things done” that meaningless errands can give us.

James Surowiecki explained in the New Yorker that many procrastinators are self-handicappers: “rather than risk failure, they prefer to create conditions that make success impossible, a reflex that of course creates a vicious cycle.”

Why procrastination doesn’t need a cure

stop procrastinatingIt’s true that most of us see procrastination as a bad thing, and it’s not difficult to find hundreds of articles or books telling us how to cure or overcome this flaw. But as Paul Graham says, strictly speaking, it’s impossible to cure procrastination:

No matter what you work on, you’re not working on everything else. So the question is not how to avoid procrastination, but how to procrastinate well.

Paul breaks down procrastination into three variants, depending on what you do instead of doing your work:

  1. you do nothing
  2. you do something less important
  3. you do something more important.

It’s easy to see how type three procrastination can actually be really beneficial to us. Instead of running errands, writing emails or doing housework, we could be focusing on our most important work.

On the other hand, John Perry, a Professor Emeritus at Stanford, wrote in the Huffington Post that type two procrastination can lead to us producing better work when we get around to it. He said that since many procrastinators are perfectionists who dream of doing a perfect job of those most important tasks, putting them off can be beneficial:

Leaving it till the last minute is a way of giving oneself permission to do a merely adequate job. 99 percent of the time a merely adequate job is all that is needed.

Another benefit of type two procrastination that’s sometimes pointed out is that we often have tasks to do that are not really important. By putting them off, they’ll disappear eventually anyway, and we’ll save ourselves from doing unimportant work. I’ll let you decide whether you want to test this theory, though!

Good procrastination

So if we want to harness our procrastination into a positive trait, there are a couple of theories about how we can do this. The first is Paul Graham’s idea of type three procrastination, or “good” procrastination.

This is when we procrastinate on unimportant tasks, for instance errands or “busy work” so we can spend more time on our most important work. If I had worked on this post instead of going to the post office, that would be a good example.

Errands is a particular type of distraction that Paul advocates for procrastinating against:

There’s more to do than anyone could. So someone doing the best work they can is inevitably going to leave a lot of errands undone. It seems a mistake to feel bad about that.

There’s an important reason that leaving busy work undone is useful for getting big projects done. Our important projects usually require two things that errands or busy work don’t: large amounts of time, and being in the right mood. When we’re inspired to work on something important, it would be a mistake to waste that inspiration on getting unimportant tasks done, because we think we should. Channeling our energy into our big projects whenever we can might mean we don’t keep up with household chores and smaller tasks, but perhaps Paul is right that this is a good thing.

Work on an ambitious project you really enjoy, and sail as close to the wind as you can, and you’ll leave the right things undone. 5

Structured procrastination

stop procrastinatingThe other side of the “positive procrastination” coin is the theory of structured procrastination, which John Perry advocates as being the best way to channel natural procrastination tendencies into productivity. As he explains it, structured procrastination is:

an amazing strategy I have discovered that converts procrastinators into effective human beings, respected and admired for all that they can accomplish and the good use they make of time.

Structured procrastination is essentially type two procrastination, as mentioned above, although the art of tricking ourselves about the importance of our tasks comes into play as well. The idea is that while we think we are working on less important tasks as a way to avoid the big projects we should be doing, we are in fact tricking ourselves into working on our most important projects after all.

The practice exploits the fact that we generally list our tasks by order of importance. More urgent or important tasks sit at the top of our to-do lists, although many other important tasks will also be listed. Natural procrastinators will usually avoid those important and difficult (or fear-inducing) tasks at the top of the list in favour of easier, smaller tasks further down.

In this way, type two procrastinators can in fact get a lot done, so long as it helps us to avoid those big projects we think we should be doing.

In 1930, Robert Benchley wrote this appropriate quote:

The psychological principle is this: anyone can do any amount of work, provided it isn’t the work he is supposed to be doing at that moment.

What makes this strategy productive, however, is when we twist it to our advantage. By adding tasks to our to-do lists that seem urgent or important, but actually aren’t, we can trick ourselves into doing things that really need to be done, since we think we’re procrastinating on bigger tasks.

Piers Steel, a psychologist at the University of Calgary pointed out that many procrastinators are already good at the kind of self-deception needed to wrangle our procrastination skills into useful habits:

Productive procrastination is a bit of make-believe, along the lines of setting your watch five minutes fast. You know you did it, but you still pretend you didn’t.

How to make procrastination work for you

If you’re a chronic procrastinator like me, here are some strategies to pull your procrastinating into line and get more done.

Start small

Paul Graham makes a good point that working on our biggest, most important projects can be so scary and overwhelming that we sometimes need to work up to it. He suggests working on small tasks that can grow into big projects, or starting small and working up to larger tasks. We can also collaborate with others so that our part is smaller than the whole project, but we still have a hand in doing important work.

Adjust your to-do list

Using John Perry’s structured procrastination strategy, try adding tasks to the top of your list that seem to have urgent deadlines or to be incredibly important, but in fact can either be safely put off until later or not done at all. The tricky part is getting yourself to believe that these tasks are important and difficult, so that you’ll complete other tasks on your list in order to avoid them.

We’ve also talked before about the best ways to create a meaningful to do list, which might be a good place to start.

If you can successfully implement this strategy, you’ll be well on your way to getting more done and being a productive procrastinator!

Set boundaries

stop procrastinatingNovelist and screenwriter Raymond Chandler understood his own procrastination tendencies and used boundaries to help himself get work done. He used to force himself to write by setting aside writing time every day and ensuring he followed two basic rules:

  1. You don’t have to write.
  2. You can’t do anything else.

In order to avoid the tedium of sitting idle for four hours per day, he became a highly productive writer.

He explained how this same strategy applies to children in schools:

If you make the pupils behave, they will learn something just to keep from being bored.

We’ve explored before in our scientific guide to saying “no” how important it is to be able to prioritize relentlessly.

Increase your commitments

According to John Perry, procrastinators often try to reduce their commitments, hoping that with fewer things to do, they’ll actually get more done. John explained, however, that this removes the procrastinator’s most important source of motivation by removing any choice between important and unimportant tasks. With only a few tasks on your to-do list, you can only procrastinate by doing nothing:

This is a way to become a couch potato, not an effective human being.

So the lesson of all this research seems to be that procrastination is not uncommon, nor is it necessarily a bad thing. In learning to wrangle our tendencies to procrastinate, we can effectively get more done.

    Inspiring and well documented. As usual i would say… On a subject that I know and in which i made a lot of improvments, there are still new things to learn. And the tip of raymond Chandler is powerful, too.

    • Belle

      Agreed, Philippe. I’m already trying out Raymond Chandler’s technique!

  • Hi Belle, another great article, as usual.

    I like this quote from Paul Graham: “Big problems are terrifying.” So true.

    Many of the creative entrepreneurs I work with struggle because they don’t have a system for regularly writing down and thinking about what their most important tasks are in the first place. For them, the problem is not their big terrifying project. It’s the daunting task of planning the big terrifying project.

    In other words, the first and most important item on their mental to-do list, which is the source of their procrastination, is to write down their to-do list for their big terrifying project.

    So I do it for them. It’s so simple but so effective. I ask them what they are going to do, by when, and then I hold them accountable to it. But more importantly, this alleviates them of the tension that procrastination causes.

    • Belle

      Yep, it’s a great quote!

      I like that plan—I definitely think even just planning what to do can be too daunting sometimes.

  • Belle
    I love your article, as it always give me a food of thought, and I learn something new.. From past few months, I worked hard on converting my non-productive hours as productive hours…
    Small pleasure is usually which is main reason for procrastination, and I switched my short pleasure tasks to something which in-turn adds into overall productivity.. For example, instead of playing games like “Age of empire” (Oh this is highly addictive game), I assigned that time to my reading or watching videos… Well to attain this I had to delete that game app, but it was totally worth it…

    One easy way to get over from such unproductive time is consciously keeping a track of time that we are spending every day, which adds into non-productive time…. Once we accept those things, we are more likely to replace it with something productive…

    I also followed white-board method, where I keep my To-do list right infront of me, (Big board), and that works as a stimulant and let me finish my important work…

    Thanks for adding such value in my life with your writing.. 🙂

  • I really enjoyed Dr. Piers Steel’s book ‘The Procrastination Equation’ – and I’m definitely going to check out ‘The Procrastinator’s Digest’. I thoroughly enjoy reading about procrastination, it’s origins, and potential solutions. Great post!

  • Hanad

    Excellent way to start my day.

  • Mohamed Sakallah

    I think that all these are awesome points. I think especially as a full time student, and an entrepreneur. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed, and let procrastination take it’s course. I really enjoyed the helpful tips and advice that you mention throughout the article, although I now can slightly justify my procrastination!

    Thanks!

  • Fhd

    Bookmarked to read it later.

      LOL, before I quickly scrolled down the page, I actually added this to Pocket to read later!

  • Bruce (@Brudaddy)

    I kept getting interrupted, but kept coming back to finish this fantastically written article. Thanks for posting it! I hope to use some of these methods to be a “productive procrastinator.”

  • Sue

    Great food for thought. Only one thing. ..I am confused about the tricking yourself into thinking something is difficult or important. Do you have an example for this? Thanks

    • NI Yao

      You trick yourself into thinking that say cleaning your room is the most important thing to do this week due to a frind visiting. After you make yourself believe that, you’ll naturally want to procrastinate. So you procrastinate on cleaning by writing your novel or doing something else that would normally seem hard to do. I’d say this is the hardest strategy on this page, only meant for the truly crazy, thr maniacally insane! 😉

  • Thanks so much for this well written account of the benefits of procrastination (and to @Solopreneur for Tweeting it!). I offer a different perspective (rooted in The CLIENT EXPERIENCE) of its benefits here: http://bit.ly/17gsJI3 Enjoy!

  • Martina Dick

    I just try to do something. Do anything but keep yourself busy.

  • sillysillyme

    If you have awareness you can’t implement anything like Perry’s suggesting. You’d have to be insane.

  • Dubem Menakaya

    Great article Beth and some very interesting suggestions. Procrastination is indeed something we all face and will never be completely extinguished but can be maneuvered. I recommend ‘The NOW Habit’ by Niel Fiore, he has some awesome positive affirmations and meditation techniques to help in overcoming procrastination, really helped me!

    Sorry not very interest lost interest after 3rd paragraph

    Hi Belle, “Paul Graham makes a good point that working on our biggest, most important projects can be so scary and overwhelming that we sometimes need to work up to it. He suggests working on small tasks that can grow into big projects, or starting small and working up to larger tasks.” What should I do if I don’t find the project scary or overwhelming – but just boring? If I break them into small tasks I will just have many plain old boring tasks, and I tend to procrastinate further. Can you write something about conquering boring tasks?

  • dimfisch

    What about type 1 procrastinators??! Any helpful tips for us lot?

    • NI Yao

      Use the increasing your commitments thing, make a todo list with EVERYTHING that you need to do and work from there

    thank you sir for healing me from HIV, i am Doris Carter

  • James

    This is inspiring. However, when I do need to focus, I think a program like StopDistractions is helpful. http://StopDistractions.com

  • I’m curious… Did the people who bookmarked this to read later read it later? I know this has been bookmarked for me for some time and I’m so pleased I got around to it. I do believe that some procrastination is necessary to produce good work. I am writing a book at the moment, and find that the occasional episode of The Mentalist, game of Angry Birds or general relaxation is a good thing to inspire creativity. I do have to set a timer though or one episode turns into two, one game turns into seven etc. Thank you so much for writing Belle!

    Been a HIV positive is just like been through hell but EVERYTHING
    IS POSSIBLE. So amazing and i want to testify of the good work done by
    GREAT BABA a very strong and powerful spell caster. GREAT BABA has
    proved science and scientists wrong for believing and thinking that
    there is no cure for HIV AIDS but to be sincere this GREAT MAN is so
    real and powerful. I never thought that this spell will work but this
    GREAT MAN has proved it to me and it has worked and still working
    perfectly. My Name is Randy Scott and i was diagnosed of the deadly
    disease called HIV AIDS in 2011 and i thought that is the end and there
    will be no hope. Speaking to anyone was always a problem because i was
    so worried and always in the state of unrest in fact i thought it was
    over until one blessed day when i was searching for help here on the
    internet, i came across a testimony about GREAT BABA on how he helped a
    lady who was HIV positive. At first i thought it was all a lie but i
    decided to give it a try since there was no option and, when i contacted
    this MAN he laughed and told me that, that is too small for him to
    handle but i was still in doubt, and he gave me a
    form to fill which I did, then he called me and told me that his gods
    required some items in which he will use in casting a curing spell on me
    and he told me that it will cost only $500, I sent him the money because I
    could not find the items. He bought the items and prepared a cure for
    me, and instructed me on what to do and i OBEYED him completely as he told me. Then he sent a parcel to me through the courier delivery service. I
    paid for the courier service, I got my parcel, it was a holy water and a pure holy oil as
    described by GREAT BABA. I took the holy water and the holy oil and after taking it, he told me to go for check up but
    I was still in doubt and was so afraid to go for the test but i took a
    bold step and believed that it is well, and i believed all what he has
    done and all that he has told me. So i went to the hospital for the test
    it was so amazing, awesome and exciting what seems to be impossible
    became possible, the VIRUS disappeared completely from my system and I was tested HIV negative. Quickly I called him and told him what
    happened he congratulated me and today i am a happy man again the way things use to be. Don’t you think that this testimony is worth sharing? I promise to tell the world about him and i
    will keep sharing this testimony till the end because many people has
    died of AIDS and i want many people who believed that it is over to know
    that EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE AND I WANT THEM TO GET HELP FROM THIS SPELL

    I want to say hello to the world at large, I am very grateful for the good deeds DR.OKOJE did for me, I was a HIV patient, everything went bad for me, I couldn’t do things with my friends anymore, I loosed my job, I loosed everything, I was even waiting for death itself, I went searching on the internet I saw many testimonies on how different spell casters helped people in curing their deadly diseases, I collected one spell caster’s email, which DR.OKOJE I emailed him and he answered me, I told him all problems, he ask me not to worry, that I will be free from the deadly disease, which I did, he casted the spell, and told me that he will send a holy water to me through courier services, I was surprised, because he did not mention it to me before, I paid for the courier delivery service, I got a holy water, he asked me to drink it which I did and he asked me to go for a medical check-up in a hospital, I went to the hospital I went for a HIV test, I was tested HIV negative, I was shocked, I asked myself, “is there still good helpers out there”? I promised to share my testimony to the whole world, I’m now free, I have a better job, if you are passing through pains you need help you can share your problems to DR.OKOJE through (profectwilliamspiritualtemple@gmail.com OR CALL HIM +2348-1023-86568
