Procrastination is the avoidance of doing a task that needs to be accomplished. It can really become a daily habit, always waiting until the last minute to finish something. It’s a common human experience involving delay in everyday chores or even putting off salient tasks. Procrastination quite often is also referred to “slacking”. Sometimes there might be a good cause for student to procrastinate, such as being busy with athletics, after school activities or even extracurricular activities. For some students it’s a way of getting away from it but sooner or later you’ll have to do it.
