Procrastination is a state where you try to explain to yourself that the most valuable task is not important. Wow, if you look into this mind scam, will you actually do it?
Who studies 2 months before the exams if I can complete my syllabus in a week; why do I complete my projects so early if I have 10 days of holiday left; The deadline is in a month from today, let's chill; and many more reasons which you give to yourself daily and convince yourself to go voluntarily into the webs of procrastination.
Procrastination has seen tremendous growth when gadgets became so handy. It wasn't a big problem back then as it is now because gadgets have so many hidden triggers that they psychologically impact our brains.

You have to have an idol. For doing that you have to live in a higher orbit. well, that's a story for another crastinate blog.
