A Student’s Guide to Perfectionism & Procrastination (Online Workshop)

When a person is striving to achieve perfection, they end up having a high standard to the point where even the thought of getting started brings up feelings of fear and anxiety.  

A person who struggles with a dilemma uses procrastination as a protective mechanism to avoid the possibility of failing because they’ve internalized a perfect view of themselves and want to protect themselves from not achieving that view. Even though this type of person has a high need to succeed, they also have a high fear of failure making it more likely to procrastinate on a task. 

If you can relate to this too, join the Health Education & Promotion team as we: 

  • Look at what Perfectionism and Procrastination are, their underlying factors and how the two relate to one another. 
  • Explore ways to combat both perfectionism and procrastination, the discussion will include all or nothing thinking, receiving criticism and the practice of self-kindness.  
  • Go over some helpful resources and open the floor to any questions!
