delay or postpone action; put off doing something.
"it won't be this price for long, so don't procrastinate"

synonyms: delay, put off doing something, postpone action, defer action, be dilatory, use delaying tactics, stall, temporize, drag one's feet/heels, take one's time, play for time, play a waiting game
"fear of failure often causes people to procrastinate"

I am the worst procrastinator EVER. It was bad when I was really depressed but now that I'm feeling better, what's my excuse? I do the absolute bare minimum that needs to be done. My paperwork and lists of things waiting for me to do get shoved into a black bag.

I'm spending $15 a month because I haven't taken my truck through emissions, my "change oil light" has been on for weeks, I've had a script for blood work from my GP for at least a month, my dog desperately needs to be groomed, my truck is an absolute disaster, I haven't done my taxes, work stuff, blah blah blah.

For me I don't think its "fear of failure" ...I think I'm so used to being paralyzed as a result of my depressed state that I'm having trouble breaking free of this bad habit.

Anyone else? Any tips?
