We have all procrastinated getting something completed–it could be our taxes, getting that medical exam or just fixing our car. No matter what we procrastinate about there is an emotion attached to our procrastination.
In my recent interview with psychologist and author Mary Lamia, the author of a new book entitled “What Motivates Getting Things Done” Mary reveals what really gets in the way of us completing things in our life that need to get done.
As Mary states in the book “An emotion will be activated when it is triggered by a stimulus–an event, as situation, a thing, or the action of another person. It’s common vernacular these days to claim something has ‘triggered’ you, implying something has happened that has messed you up emotionally because it has activated an emotion based on an unpleasant emotional memory. Mary breaks us down into two types, deadline-driven procrastinators, and task-driven non-procrastinators and she explains the differences between these two types.
If you are interested in really delving into what motivates us to get things done, or what effects us from being driven to get anything done then I recommend that you listen to my interview with Mary Lamia the author of “What Motivates Getting Things Done“.
