disagree  Mohammad Hosseini: procrastination means putting off for a later time what you shoulddo now not wasting time. I suggest " obstructionism"

  -> Thanks for your consideration. But procrastinate means " be dilatory with the purpose of gaining time", which means "daf'olvaqt kardan". You have suggested "obstructionism" which means "mAne' tarashi" and is not a proper equivalent.
