We all go through them. The days where you’re not even sure you can get out of bed, let alone drag your butt to the office and actually accomplish something. You’ve probably seen posts telling you how to get out of this funk (heck, we’ve even made a couple here and here) but do you know what causes you to procrastinate in the first place? Well, thanks to ProEssayWriter & HubSpot, we’ve found the top 7 reasons you’re shoving that task to the bottom of your “to-do” mountain.

  1. Hi, Joshua.

    You shared some fine points.

    The last point caught my eye the most, about not seeing the point. I’ve noticed that a lot, and at times I’ve seen fit to change my strategy completely to pursue that end goal..

    At times, the same thought concerns what my clients want me to do. I suppose it’s another way to assess whether the client is the right fit.

    Thanks for sharing,


    1. Hi Nathan,

      Thanks so much for taking the time to read our blog and comment.

      It can definitely be hard to see the point of it all, but thinking of the end goal helps a lot.

      Hope you had a great weekend!

  2. This is great seeing as I am extremely unmotivated right now ha! I usually benefit from to-do lists. It makes me feel very accomplished when I cross things off as they are done!

  3. Or sometimes work is just too stressful (or your boss is). Lol. But kidding aside, these are true. Sometimes we really can’t get out of that loop and we need something fresh or maybe a little push.

  4. I am so guilty of number 1. Always afraid I will fail. But I am slowly but surely overcoming that fear! It sure has taken long enough. Lol

  5. Mine ended up being medical, and hurrah it’s all better now. I was going through a checklist similar to this one though, trying to figure out what in the world was going on. 🙂

  6. Great infographic! Love your last tip about not seeing the point. Can be really guilty of this one when i am doing things that are a priority for others or that I feel I have no choice on (of course we always do!).
