Procrastinating (definition: The act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off to a future time, delay).
Procrastinate (definition: To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness. To postpone or delay needlessly.)

Why can't we get stuff done, even when I know it has to be done?
This is a common problem and research has shown that procrastinating is a growing tend. So if you are feeling that you can't get stuff done you are not alone.
The second paragraph of the story: "After 10 years of research on a project that was only supposed to take five years, a Canadian industrial psychologist found in a giant study that not only is procrastination on the rise, it makes people poorer, fatter and unhappier."

This was my 15 minute of procrastination for now. I will procrastinate some more at 3 o'clock when people are invited to the ground floor to eat the rest of the cinnamon buns (Norwegian: Kanel boller).

Tomorrow: How to get stuff done.
