    Do you think procrastination is a bad habit or the sign of something more serious?

    Have you ever procrastinated to the point that you made a simple task more difficult? Do you find yourself procrastinating on a daily basis? I was just wondering how other people are affected by procrastination.

    Procrastination may be a sign of patience, or may be a sign of laziness. I guess it depends on the individual. I procrastinate when it comes to calling some people on the phone.

    Everyone kprograstinates but if you find yourself continuing to do it then it apparently has become an issue and needs to be resolved if it concernes you.

    Procrastination is Right Brain gratification. When we are lazy we choose to not be accountable for the things that we need to do for personal development. Procrastination leads to mental ailments such as Alzheimer's Disease later in life.

    I have adhd, and as a result I have severe problems with procrastination. Everyone procrastinates sometimes...especially if they need to complete a task that is boring or uninteresting to them. If someone is procrastinating to the point it is severely affecting their life, then it has become a problem and needs to be dealt with by a doctor.

    All the answers below I agree with...the one thing i have to add is that I think for a lot of people it is down to a lack of confidence in themselves...

    Procrastination is a symptom of something happening in your brain. You do it for a reason. However, everyone has a different reason.
    For example, I have a friend who procrastinates with every major report or project. She is afraid of making a bad grade, or so she says. In reality, she puts off the project because if she starts it too soon, she will loose the will to do yet. Even if she adores the project's goal, she will put it off so she will love it while she does it. Though if she started maybe a week sooner, she would make a letter grade higher. She always makes a B with this method when everyone knows she can make a perfect A, but runs out of time. Part of it has to do with her having ADD.
