    procrastination/put off

    Procrastination isn't the problem, it's the solution. So procrastinate now, don't put it off.

    I came across this adage today. What is the difference between procrastinate and put off ?

    Hi jayan12

    As an NES, but not a teacher:

    What it means is "Don't put off (i.e. delay) procrastinating (i.e. putting it off) - i.e Don't put off putting it off!

    It's like an "oxymoron".
