Procrastination refers to the counterproductive deferment of actions or tasks to a later time. Psychologists often cite such behavior as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision.

Have you ever procrastinated? I know I do it all of the time. I put off tasks that I dread doing so that I don’t have to confront the anxiety or work associated with a particular task.
Take for instance my school room. I’ve been putting off hanging window treatments. I didn’t have any curtain rods and really didn’t feel like going to get any. In fact, I didn’t feel like pulling up a chair, grabbing a hammer and attaching the hardware.
WINDOW #1 BEFORE
I mean, what did it matter anyway. No one really sees this room but my family and I. Did I really need to waste money buying hardware, and spend time working on this project?
WINDOW #1 AFTER
Of course I didn’t, but every time I looked at the space where the curtains used to be, I felt this nagging feeling. Something in me just kept asking, “When are you going to get around to hanging up the window treatments?”
WINDOW #2 BEFORE
The small nagging voice in my head finally won me over. This week I am tackling a ton of little and big project and one or two big ones.
WINDOW #2 AFTER
The windows were done in less than 10 minutes and that nagging voice is gone. It’s been replaced with a sense of accomplishment. Now on to the next tackle!!
I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; and, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down. Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction. Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.
