"We still have half an hour to the next prayer"
"I can start the assignment next week"
"The early bird deadline is tomorrow. Insha Allah, I will try to purchase them soon"
"Last minute Eid shopping is so exciting!"
These are some examples of excuses we make to put off important responsibilities and tasks to a later time. This is called procrastination, which is usually accompanied by shifting our focus to some other distraction.
