Experts refer to procrastination as the act of replacing high-priority actions or tasks with low-priority actions, thus putting off important tasks to a later time.
According to Schraw, Wadkins, and Olafson; “There are three criteria for a behavior to be classified as academic procrastination: it must be counterproductive, needless, and delaying” Sabini & Silver argued that postponement and irrationality are the two key features of procrastination; putting a task off is not procrastination, they argue, if there are rational reasons for doing so – curled from Wikipedia.
