Sigmund Freud’s pleasure principle isn’t exactly rocket science but it’s easy to forget. Essentially it says every action we take is an effort to feel better, either by seeking pleasure or avoiding pain. Avoiding pain usually takes priority and often takes the form of procrastination. We put something off because we perceive it as a source of pain and find something more pleasant to do instead.

Procrastination is the biggest thing that holds me back from progress. I know I could be much farther along in reaching my goals if I didn't procrastinate so much. I'm just have to make the decision to get on my game if I really want to reach the success I desire. Thanks for sharing your insights with us.

Thanks Ti. Glad it was helpful. Can you see how 'dialing up the pleasure' can help you overcome it? It makes the decision much easier.
