Procrastination and perfectionism go hand-in-hand. Typically, when people are chronic procrastinators it is because they have the underlying belief that they need to be perfect at the tasks they engage in. Such a high standard is hard to achieve, and the nearly inevitable consequence is procrastination out of fear of not living up to this standard. Usually there is a reason that this belief is formed and in bringing it to light and learning to challenge it, people can start to develop less rigid and demanding expectations for themselves, which helps in overcoming procrastination. Many people worry that if they adopt less demanding expectations of themselves that they will fail to live up to their potential but the opposite is almost always true.
