Depression and Procrastination: Twins In the Job Search

 by: Marilyn J. Tellez, M.A.

Let me examine these two mental states. My definition of procrastination is that a person delays and delays actions that are required by a job or actions necessary to accomplish something in every day life.

Depression is a mental state that "almost freezes" a person into no action at all.

While procrastination can be overcome by a change of behavior and attitude, depression has its core issues of lassitude, feelings of hopelessness, anger and of giving up.

What do the two have in common? I think that procrastination is often a temporary trait, but depression is something that will takes lots of time and energy to overcome. Both lead to a lack of action.

It is action, however, that has to take place for a job seeker to have success. Observing personal procrastination takes time to overcome. Overcoming depression, if it is long-term may take the intervention of either a professional and or drugs.

Both mental places have the effect of "dampening down" the actions of the job seeker. Elimination of both of these negative states of mind, has to take place for a job seeker to be minally effective.
