Procrastination is everything you do to avoid doing the things that you really have to do.
Procrastination is finding every possible excuse not to do something. For me is when I use homework as an excuse to not do chores around the house,even though I know they need done.
Procrastination is putting off, until tomorrow, what you need to do today. An example is taking a nap instead of doing homework, even though you will go to sleep within 3 hours.
Procrastination is putting something off that can be done today.
Procrastination is when I cut the grass rather than doing an english essay
Procrastination to me is knowing that you have something that needs to be done, but you do everything other than the thing that needs to be done, until your craming it in last minute.
For example, knowing you have a test in a class on wednesday, and on tuesday you do a billion other things but study, then you try to cram all of your studying in right before the test.
Procrastination is putting off what needs to be done, and instead doing something you would enoy more. Last week, I was suppose to read an article over the weekend, instead I went out with friends and read the article before class.
Procrastionation is when a person delays something that needs to be done, by doing other things. An xample would be when there is a deadline for a papedue at mid night. But instead you watch a movie first and turn it in at 11:58.
Procrastination to me is putting off a task that needs to be completed by fiddling with other tasks until the last minute. For example, I am sitting here talking to Collin instead of thinking of a definition for the word procrastination.
Procrastination is when i get on facebook or skype instead of doing a paper or homework. Its when i start daydreaming and forgetting what i have to do so i have to reread something and then think of something all over again.
Procrastination to me, is when I go and play with my dog so that I dont have to think about doing my work. Or when I wait till the day befor an assignment is due to try and get it done.
Procrastination is running through a whole list of stuff you would rather being doing than what you need to be doing. I know when I procrastinate I watch a movie or TV show first so that I am not distracted by wanted to watch said movie or TV show while I’m trying to get my important stuff done like studying for an exam.
Procrastination is when you put something off till the last minute.
I procrastinate when I clean my shoes and not my room.
Procrastination to me is throwing many ideas around that link to each other and never getting the original idea done. For example: cleaning my house and starting at my room but getting caught up in something that makes you think of some memories
Procrastination means you wait until the last minute to do something and now you are rushing to get it done. An example would be you have 1 week to write a 5 page paper and its the night before the paper is due and you haven’t even typed or wrote one word for the paper. You are now up late trying to get this paper done and its due the minute you walk in the classroom the next morning.
Procrastination is allowing something of lesser importance to come before what is actually important, for example watching one youtube video about something, then in the related videos you see something off-topic that catches your eye, and you continue to watch videos about the off-topic.
Procrastination is putting off things that I need to get done. Finding every reason to do something later.
Example: Putting my homework off and taking a nap first then waking up to eat while I watch a little bit of TV. Then possibly doing my homework if I don’t find another excuse to put it off
Procrastination to me is putting off important things in your life that you’re trying to avoid. It’s putting less important things infront of the important one or ones. For example, knowing that you have a test to study for (which is taking place tomorrow), and you don’t feel like it. So you take your time getting around to it by watching tv, eating, getting on the computer, texting, making a phone call. By the time you get all the things you WANT to do out of the way, you make another excuse why you don’t study.
Procrastination is when I put off doing a homework assignment because I wanted to relax. For example, yesterday I decided not to do my Spanish homework assignment until today when it was due, because I wanted to relax. Procrastination is when I stop reading my book so that I watch something. For example, this morning I was reading a chapter in my Psychology book so that I knew what was going to be in the lecture, then I stopped reading to watch a YouTube video.
I think procrastination is finding excuses not to do a task and putting that task off until the last minute. For me Sundays are a great example of procrastination. I will try to start homework early on Sunday but when football game after football game comes on, along with keeping up with my fantasy football team I never start early like I plan to, even though I know I could just start early and then use the rest of the day to relax.
My example of procrastination is starting all my assignments at once but taking forever just to complete one of my task. If I know that I have plenty of time to complete one assignment then I just start all of them and not realizing I’m wasting time.
