General Overview:

Procrastination has been one of the opponents of students, especially to high school students.
It would be the students’ fault if the students are affected by procrastination; it would consume the student’s time allotted for doing hard work and achieving high grades; students should have avoided doing other things in order to achieve focus.

The surveys are consisting of seven (7) questions which are all related in the study.

Conclusion and Recommendation

The researchers can conclude that almost of the population of the fourth year high school student are not fully aware of procrastination.

Background of the Study:

The researchers believe that each student has the ability to show how to manage their
time and effort in doing high school works. However, some factors hinder the student in doing
such productive thing related to studying. Students are easily discouraged from doing intellectual
activities because of having the feeling that “they can do it anytime they want”.
Scope and Limitations:

The fourth year high school students were chosen by the researcher to cognize how the students respond to the situations/ activities given by the school that the students will encounter in college. The particular points looked into were the causes and effects of the said topic when students are being subjected to this behavior, also considering that through the research, it would benefit the researchers and the subject who are experiencing procrastination. The researchers conducted a survey for further knowledge about the study and the whole process was done inside the school’s premises. This study would not cover how the students can fully avoid and disregard procrastination.
Statement of the Problem:

In this study, the researchers need to:
- Determine the priorities of the Fourth year high school students
- Point out the possible causes of procrastination within the Fourth year high school
- Identify the different consequences of a procrastinator might face
procrastination plagues people of all occupations.
“Procrastination: Why You Do It, What To Do About It Now?”

“Cycle of

1. “I’ll start early this time”
2. “What if I don’t start? What will happen?”
"I should’ve started sooner."
“I’m doing everything, but…I can’t enjoy anything.”
“I hope no one finds out.”
3.“there’s still time”
4. “It’s me… there’s nothing wrong with me!”
5. The final choice: To Do or Not to Do.
6. "I'll never procrastinate again!"
The students are afraid to take action that would cause a certain amount of pain, as Stutz Phil and Barry Michels declared.
Eric Jaffe clarified that the Internet [technology] did not give rise to procrastination.
It’s a harmless habit at worst, and maybe even a helpful one at best. Stanford philosopher, John Perry, has argued that people can delay to their advantage by restructuring their to-do-lists so that they’re always accomplishing something of value.
APS Fellow Tice Dianne and APS Fellow William James Roy Baurneister concluded that procrastination cannot be regarded as either adaptive or innocuous and is really a self-defeating behavior-with procrastinators trying to undermine their own best efforts.
Ferrari claimed that if someone has a dozen things to do, numbers 10, 11 and 12 have to wait, but as Sirois believes that the best way to eliminate the need for short-term mood fixes is to find something positive or worthwhile about the task itself, digging a little deeper and giving a personal meaning can be a big help.
According to APS Fellow Tice Dianne, procrastination can also be related to the feelings and emotions of students wherein they lack and have low self-discipline.
. All of these traits have led researchers to call procrastination the “quintessential” breakdown of self-control.
Slovin’s Formula
n = total number of respondents
N = total population
e2 = margin of error
The total population of the fourth year high school students is one hundred twenty (120) and the margin of error is 0.05%.

n = 120/ 1 + 120 (0.05%) 2 = 92.30769231 or 92
92 / 3 = 30.66666667 or 31
three (3) sections
three (3) parts
thirty-one (31) respondents per section.
Significance of the Study:

This topic was chosen by the researchers to give awareness about procrastination and show its causes and effects. This study is significant for those who are experiencing procrastination and this can prove different results of this action and its possible effect on their study habit. This research can give recommendation to the subject, who experience procrastination. This can also help the researchers, the future researchers, and any person whether student or not, as long as they experience procrastination. This study can help the teachers to lessen their effort in making the students understand the lesson and it can also help the parents to lessen their duties for tutorial.

One must do what they say and mean it.
Do the things that are planned.
Future researchers can continue the study by broadening the causes and effects of procrastination when new activities are to be implemented for the fourth year high school students which can also affect their performance for future researchers to see if procrastination could help a person in the future or continue bringing bad effects on people.
