Notes

  • Procrastination is the action of delaying or postponing something.

  • We may procrastinate because a task might be stressful and we prefer to avoid negative emotions - Pleasure Principle.

  • It's also correlated to #time-management.

    • People tend to delay completing a task to make sure it is done "perfectly" - Perfectionism.
    • In a linear culture, people tend to stop doing some task if the time allocated to it has finished.
  • It may cause anxiety. As the deadline of a procrastinated task grows closer, they are more stressed and anxious and may decide to procrastinate more to avoid this stress.
