How to use "Dawdling" in context?

One of the worst habits that people can have is dawdling. Dawdling is when someone takes too long to do something. It can take a long time to get something done, especially if it's something that someone isn't particularly interested in. Someone who dawdles is usually not doing it on purpose; they are just taking a lot longer than they need to. This can frustrate their allies and their opponents, as well as make them seem uninterested in the task at hand. If someone is dawdling, it is usually best to tell them to hurry up so that the task can be completed.
