What is procrastination? It means deferring an action. It sounds simple enough, with no inherent negative connotations, so how did it get such a bad rap?
For as long as I can remember I have heard the advice, “do not leave till later what you can do now” from many authors and speakers.
It is certainly true that sometimes procrastinating can land you in a desperate situation where you’re struggling to finish something you should have finished long ago. However, I don’t believe procrastination is bad in every instance.
