I found out myself about the meaning of this word just recently and was quite amazed and amused by the fact that this is what I’ve been doing lately – indulging myself into the art of procrastination. And I am quite sure many of you also felt victims of this vice.
According to wikipedia:
Procrastination is a type of avoidance behavior which is characterized by deferment of actions or tasks to a later time. It is often cited by psychologists as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision.
