Procrastination is an interesting phenomenon to study because it is well-known by almost everybody! Procrastination is also a very challenging phenomenon to measure because it depends on internal norms and whether it is classified as "delay" or as a case of procrastination. Procrastination is also a very important phenomenon to treat because it effects a wide range of persons and age groups and can often lead to personal stress and misery.
