Procrastination During Existentialism


During times of existential crisis, there are interesting behavioral issues that crop up from time to time.

One such behavioral issue is procrastination.


I am sure that you would have noticed this in your own life.

If you’ve ever dealt with this chaotic state, it’s quite common to put things off in order to better ‘figure things out’.

Then again, you might just be using it as an excuse, to procrastinate on something that you find a little too ‘icky’ to deal with.


Regardless of what the case may be, it’s important that you avoid procrastinating during this phase of your life.

While there is nothing wrong with putting effort to figure things out, it’s certainly irresponsible of you to use this as an excuse for procrastination.

If you can just sort out your priorities first and then get to work, you’ll do just fine.


The way you’ll need to go about this is to prioritize your daily routine and schedule over your existential crisis.

Make sure that you take care of your daily work first no matter what. Even if existential thoughts creep into your mind, keep focus on your everyday affairs until they are finished.

After you are through with your everyday affairs, feel free to spend all the time you want with, as I once put it, ‘connecting the dots’.


In all,

Quit procrastinating if you are going through an existential crisis.

While I can understand the situation you are in, you need to know that your life will still go on whether you are confused or not. And life in turn, leaves no room for daily activities to be ignored and neglected.

Let the existential crisis be for a while and take care of things that matter.

You can always go back to being confused after you are done with your work.
