In general, and especially in today’s pop -psychological world, avoidance is viewed as a bad thing (embrace your feelings and slay your dragons); however it serves a function too. At a subconscious level, nobody wants to do something they won’t enjoy or they fear. That’s human nature, so congratulations, you are normal, and your psyche is protecting you from the pain, discomfort, mistrust or boredom associated with “the task.”
Having said that, there is something to say for slaying your dragons and accomplishing things; different, uncomfortable, stressful, new or boring things and trying something new, gaining a sense of accomplishment or learning that we have to take the good with the bad are all important too!
Everyone knows they should not procrastinate. It is being irresponsible and we are often told how to avoid it as much as possible. However let us look at what are the real benefits of avoiding procrastination and how different our lives would be when we actually implement it.
