“if people think their needs are not going to be met, then they will procrastinate”

“Pychyl and colleagues showed that the fear of failure that may motivate procrastination is mediated by a person’s need satisfaction. In other words, if people think their needs are not going to be met, then they will procrastinate. If they feel incompetent and as if they have little control over the outcome of a situation, this may cause them to procrastinate.” – Still Procrastinating, By Joseph Ferrari.
