Participant Handout and Time Management Glosssary with 49 terms

Procrastination is the avoidance of doing a task that needs to be accomplished. This can lead to feelings of guilt, inadequacy, depression, and self-doubt among workers, and can interfere with personal and organizational success. The word “procrastination” originated from the Latin word “procrastinationem” in the1540s. It came from the combination of the beginning “pro,” meaning forward, and “crastinus,” meaning belonging to tomorrow.
