Procrastination is the deferment of an action for a later time. It is the avoidance of task that could be achieved easily now. On a social level, it has mixed remarks and reviews by the people. Few comments positively in its favor and rest label it as ‘negative disposition’. In the urbanized cultures with a mish-mash of modernization, the time has infinite value. A person who uses time wisely in modern society is entitled as ‘productive’ and the one who fails to comply with the norms is titled as ‘less productive’. Since, our lives have become bombarded with luxuries and ease-of-life, completing personal and professional tasks has been hard-nut to crack.
We, in fact, are prone to avoiding necessary tasks and routine work that lead us to despair, frustration and mismanagement. It won’t be incorrect to say that ‘Procrastination is the postponement of the misery’. It’s certain, on the other hand, that more we procrastinate the more we will become susceptible to energy drain, discomfort, pessimism and distractedness.
Did you ever realize, ‘Why we procrastinate? Why procrastination is overwhelming that it takes a considerable amount of time in overcoming the flaw?’ Although, you have already broken the insurmountable and huge projects successfully into easily manageable smaller tasks, and still your productivity and results suffer most. Well, it can be anything. Possibly, you could be a victim of fear of failure, it can be laziness, maybe, you are a self-centered perfectionist or you willfully underestimate the time commitments.

Develop the habit of maintaining a schedule where you could designate a specific time for each activity. This way, you could be able to manage loads of activities easily without facing the fear of late submissions, overstepping deadlines or etc. Scheduling is also essential because it takes productivity to the next-level as well.
Keep a schedule and adhering to it religiously will make a significant change in your academic outlook and personal life. Bear in mind, in the beginning, it’ll feel irksome to follow a schedule but stay determined as you will become accustomed to it and saving yourself from the malice of procrastination will be as easy as A-B-C.
