    Hi Guys,

    I have a question regarding the word “procrastination”. To me it seems that in this lesson you have given just a partial definition of this word’s meaning, you described it as mostly negative…. However, in my opinion, procrastination might be useful too..Correct me if I am wrong: sometimes, we ought to procrastinate a bit in order to avoid making the wrong decision or act..For example, suppose I got angry with my boss and decided to quit and report my decision to the boss immediately…Here, it would be useful for my to procrastinate…to take time to think whether I really should do this.. perhaps it would be much better not to go to the boss right now and wait till tomorrow…perhaps the situation would change by then…

    I am not native speaker of English and might be mistaken, but I would like to know whether it is possible to use this word in such way…Thanks in advance for your response.

    Hey Victor,

    Good question. I know what you are thinking but actually it should not be used in this way. Procrastination is needlessly delaying doing what you know you should be doing. As you said, sometimes in life you are faced with a decision that requires time. This is not procrastinating. This is just taking your time to make a smart decision.

    I hope that clears it up

    Andy

    Hi there,
    just before the dialogue you used the word “duzy’s”. I wonder if this shouldn’t be written “doozies” or “doozys”? Please explain this and actually what it means because there is no such explenation in the dialogue.
    Thanks in advance
    Andrzej

    I’m trying to follow your advice you’ve mentioned in the blog, where you were saying that sparing at least 20-30 minutes daily for things you don’t feel like take on, eventually would bring a positive result afterwards
