The relationship between perfectionism and procrastination is complex. One reason why people procrastinate is perfectionism. For example, socially reluctant perfectionists might be so critical of themselves for making perceived mistakes in the presence of others that they will decline to contribute to conversations to avoid dealing with the associated negative emotions. Similarly, procrastinating salespeople might be so worried about their offer being declined, that they will delay contacting potential customers.
Episode 146 of the Social Skills Mastery podcast takes a look at the paradox and relationship between these seemingly dissimilar character traits and helps you identify how to break free from where you may find yourself on the continuum.
