Most of my students who suffer from procrastination tell me that it is a constant pain to be remembering what they need to do to execute their tasks.
Those people are excellent self-tortures; at the same time, they avoid doing a task to drink another pint, watch another TV series, spend most of the time with a little shade of anxiety as their mind keeps remembering what they proposed to do and avoid.
In general, procrastination has those 3 most common “seeds”:

People with this problem tend to rely on willpower, which often does not work. Unfortunately, this succession of failures tends to aggravate the situation and lower the person’s self-esteem deeper and deeper.
Another possible way to correct this problem is holding yourself accountable to a friend or a relative that is also trying to surpass a similar situation.
