You put off tasks because you like working under pressure and think the stress and adrenaline rush of the deadline will motivate you to complete the project. You believe that this helps you perform at your best.
You don't think you should have to work hard to get what you want. You think life should be easy and everything should/will just fall into place. You have great ideas but don't do very much about them. You don’t think about the details that go into accomplishing a task or achieving a goal.
You take on too much, can’t say “no,” or establish boundaries. You struggle to find time to start and complete tasks. The tasks don’t get done on time because there are too many and they’re all important, it’s overwhelming. This creates a downward spiral of letting ones’ self down, and the fear of letting others down.
You put off tasks because you're afraid you won't be able to do it perfectly. Your expectations are so high you’re worried you’ll never meet them. You work, and work, and work at it and never finish because it’s never good enough. Or you never even start because it’s such an impossible goal.

You put off tasks because something (anything) else is more appealing - more rewarding, easier, more fun, or you think it’s more important. You don't want to be told by anyone else what you should be doing.
