Let’s be real everyone, we all procrastinate. But there is one very real problem that exists within the realm of procrastination… People aren’t even doing it right! Today, the world wide web shall learn how to do it properly. To the chagrin of many accomplished professionals, skillful procrastination is a very valuable ability. It is something we nurture with time. In order to procrastinate properly, we must understand what procrastination is and why people use it, what is required to procrastinate, and how it is properly done.

The Oxford Dictionary defines it as the action of delaying or postponing something.

And after reaching out to one professional for their interpretation of the word, no response was received. This is clearly a sign of how much many professionals detests procrastination.

You probably wouldn’t be surprised to know that about 95% of college students procrastinate, so says the PR Newswire. But I know you’ll be surprised to know that by the APA’s research, only 87% of high school students procrastinate.

The Academic Success Center of Oregon State University outlines a few reasons for why people procrastinate.

  1. Not knowing how to complete the task assigned.
  2. The assigned task seems uninteresting
  3. There is no motivation to actually do the assignment.

And now that we’re getting to the good part , it is time for this writer to take a break and watch Netflix — I mean, work on some very important papers. Until part two, be smart about procrastination!

A quick disclaimer; The Shortridge Daily Echo does not approve of procrastination, as it is a great risk to scholars and professionals alike. Those who choose to participate in this sort of activity beware, you have been forewarned.
