At the A+ Club, we work with students to overcome the urge to delay by implementing specific strategies for overcoming procrastination.
Our working definition of procrastination is "any delay that causes harm."
If the delay causes no harm, that's called "prioritization." However, if there is harm in the delay, such as missed or lower quality work, last-minute stress, or arguing with parents and teachers, etc., that's called "procrastination."
Procrastination is self-harm:
Why, then, would we choose to harm ourselves?
We don't: procrastination is not a rational choice.
