Procrastination, as explained in the dictionary, is the action of delaying or postponing something. It is the act of avoiding activities or responsibilities right up till the time you can no longer avoid them.
How often we find ourselves postponing those important things that we should be taking up immediately – be it starting to exercise or working on a relationship or spending more time on a hobby or even something like making sure to hit the bed on time. We keep giving ourselves different reasons and try to convince ourselves why now is not the right time or why it will be more beneficial and helpful if we start later. And we are so good at convincing ourselves. And the funny part is that when the self-imposed deadline arrives, we again find other reasons to convince ourselves to postpone the said action.
Why procrastinators procrastinate?
So, on our country’s 72nd Independence Day I want to share a funny but eye-opening video I came across, which can act as a motivator to set you on a path to freedom from procrastination.
Once we understand our reasons for procrastination, it is easier to help motivate ourselves to work on getting rid of this habit and use our time wisely and attain freedom from procrastination.

Good post. I enjoyed reading your perspective on it!
I do procrastinate but over the years I have managed to control the habit a bit. Great video.
If we realize that we have limited time on this planet we will stop procrastinating.
Great Post, Love your take on it
Good post with equally good perspective.

I kicked this habit by using the 5 seconds rule. It kicks my behind into action every time I want to snuggle up and delay.
Well I too procrastinate a lot. Sometimes I surprise myself with the work I can get done.
I didn’t know it but I needed this so much! I shouldn’t be leaving everything to the deadline and hopefully this lesson will stay with me 🙂
Really loved the TED Talk. Thanks for this!
Procrastination is sometimes due to deficiencies which are not caught on time. It’s also a state of mind. One or the other reason, this is definitely a good quality. #surreads #myfriendalexa #blogchatter
I think most of us are procastinators in some way. Wish I could get freedom from it!

I am a huge procrastinator so much so that everyone around me gets annoyed… I think I know the reasons as well… Now it is time for me to get freedom from them! Or should I procrastinate about that also 😀
I need this freedom in my life 😀
My biggest enemy is procrastination. Seriously…its such a sweet poison. It gives pleasure today to keep things tomorrow and kills the tomorrow itself. Wonderful post.
Icame here looking for a remedy for procrastination, but that video isn’t loading.
Maybe, just maybe, I am a partial procrastinator, if there is such a thing!:P Guess, my moods take over at such moments when I wish the job completed itself, instead of me completing it. But, over the past some months, thankfully, I prefer finishing the work, on most days, so that I can sit and relax, contentedly!
Loved the TED talk! 😀
Very nice learning.
One thing that change the way we progress in life is keeping this word “procrastination” at bay, and easier said than done. Hence we are in someway trapped in the prism of procrastination, and not knowing what to do and how to come out and we keep giving the fuel to the engine that takes life in back gear. We need to unearth the reason behind the scene…
