Avoidance of any task that doesn’t appeal by doing other non-essential tasks instead
Its like coming to work and checking your social profile to see what your friends had for dinner yesterday and then getting sucked into it for longer that you want too. Procrastination is a bad habit, it loads up what is priority and compounds it to result in stress which is unnecessary if you had done it when you should have instead.
When procrastination kicks in, pick up a piece of paper and document what needs to be done and complete the task as you go on and when a task is completed, take sometime to do what you would have been doing if procrastination toke over and get back to that list.
Helps productivity and you wont need to put in the hours which you might have too if you dropped the baton instead.
