Headings and Organization[edit]

This is a bit of a jumble even at the heading level, which is too bad as it is a topic worth a lot more effort. The incidence of procrastination is rising as well as its severity and it is connected to a wide swath of topics (e.g., environmental degredation, national debt)

• Introduction • History and Etymology • Modern Definitions (note. the book The Thief of Time has a great section) • Individual Level Procrastination (e.g., stats on how common, economic impact, psychological health impact) • Societal Level Procrastination (e.g., national debt, retirement cruchy, climate change) • Theories about the Origins of Procrastination (e.g., impulsiveness versus perfectionism; physiology; environment) • Resolutions and Remedies: Treating or Correcting Procrastination

I want throw out that typology junk. There isn't a lick of scientific study or support for it. I will leave this up for a few weeks for further suggestions or refinements. Procrastinus (talk) 17:04, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Removal of all information about historical perspectives on procrastination[edit]

I noticed that an entire section of this article (several paragraphs long) was removed from this article. The article once contained a lot of relevant information about historical perspectives on procrastination in various cultures, but that section is gone now. Is this really an improvement over the article's previous state? I suggest that this deleted section be re-inserted to the article, while preserving the subsequent additions that have been made.

Where do I upload my picture? I'm fairly sure that I would fit the description (being here at 1 a.m. proves my point). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.162.119.14 (talk) 22:44, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Academic procrastination: Cal Newport 's blog reference[edit]

I think the sentence with reference 20 should be deleted due to primary research WP:ownwork. I looked at the reference/naked url of blog post of computer scientist Cal Newport and see rambling about procrastination, no third party sources, except a BBC article that didnt mention procrastination. this isnt helpful for a wikipedia article.--Wuerzele (talk) 21:31, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
