Procrastination


Oxford describes procrastination as the action of delaying or postponing something, and it makes sense to me.What doesn’t make sense to me, is the usage of this word. It is often used to accuse person X of following a wrong course of action - for achieving a fairy tale climax fantasized by some another person Y. If X likes to delay something to enjoy one other thing, it suggests that the other thing is dearer to X than something. What’s wrong with that?
