What we might consider procrastination varies around the world. Take the word mañana for example - that notion that a task belongs to some indefinite time in the future. Do we all think about delay and procrastination the same way? Obviously not!

We discuss some differences between collectivist and individualistic cultures, the influence of economic development, social class and indivdual differences. I know you'll find it interesting.
