Causes of Procrastination:

Procrastination can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  1. Fear of failure: Some people procrastinate because they are afraid of failing or making mistakes.
  2. Lack of motivation: When we don’t feel motivated or passionate about a task, it can be difficult to get started.
  3. Perfectionism: Those who strive for perfection may delay starting a task until they feel they have the perfect plan.
  4. Poor time management: If we don’t manage our time effectively, we may find ourselves constantly behind schedule.
  5. Distractions: Social media, emails, and other distractions can pull us away from important tasks.
